4. The number of times my delicate wings have been broken and clamped behind my back. 68. The number inked upon my skin, marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen.87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned.88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me.
Healthy. Cheery. Vivacious. All traits Rosalie has before becoming enslaved by the faeries to make an endless supply of pixie dust. Now that Rosalie has been traumatized by slave labor, extreme desolate conditions and multiple deaths, this hardened pixie is anything but. When this rebellious teenager attempts an escape, she’s isolated in cramped quarters until she learns her place. Just as she begins to let go of all that hope, she finds an unlikely friend in Jack, the faerie assigned to guard her. Interspecies dating is forbidden in the fae world, so their growing attraction is unacceptable. And even if Jack can find a way to free her, they know the prison is the only place they can truly be together.
Dust is the second book by Devon Ashley I’ve read. Thanks to this woman, I’m falling in love in fantasy genre again.
At first I thought it’s going to be a cute love story, you know - faeries, pixies… “Dust” surprised me. It’s kind of dark and full of pain. It sucked me into the feelings of characters. Every pixie and faerie in the book is so extraordinary and they have deep personalities. Amazing.
The story is also very interesting. Somehow, it gives you some hope that it’s possible to overcome problems that happens in life. It’s also about the power of love. Don’t worry, it’s not cheesy at all!
Some things aren’t explained to the end, so I can’t wait for the sequel!
It's international! What can you win? 5 pize packs!
