Reviews

Gr 8 Up-In this sequel to Bones of Faerie (Random, 2009), Simner paints a hauntingly exquisite portrait of a postapocalyptic world. The war between the Mortal and Faerie worlds has had disastrous consequences. Faerie is destroyed, and humans are in the grips of a winter so deep that not even the green hearts of slumbering seeds can stir. Survivors live in small, huddled colonies, threatened by starvation and fearful of outsiders and all things magical. Like all children born after the war, Liza, 16, possesses magical abilities that society believes in suppressing. Along with the rest of her village, she and her mother await a spring they fear may never arrive. Then one evening a strange boy with badly burned hands stumbles from the woods, mumbling incoherently and hinting at terrible danger. Liza decides to investigate. What she discovers is a nightmare: a vengeful Faerie Queen has been tricking human children into using their powers to destroy what remains of humanity. Now Liza must find a way to stop the queen's deadly plot and put an end to the winter before all is lost. But spring brings its own dangers.. Faerie Winter is a beautifully crafted tale, peopled with believable characters and overflowing with dramatic plot twists. But perhaps the most exceptional quality is the vivid imagery that plunges readers into the story and keeps them enchanted throughout. Fans of both fantasy and dystopian fiction will devour this one.-Alissa J. LeMerise, Oxford Public Library, MI (c) Copyright 2011.
