Faerie Tale by Raymond E. Feist
Feist somehow makes it all seem so plausible, that when a Troll begins to menace some children under a bridge, it can make you shiver. Clearly some small amount of research has gone into this and the world of Faerie is brought to life with some degree of magic. I recommend you avoid this one. View all 7 comments.

I’ve liked books less when I’ve gone back and re-read them, but not that tqle. There are all kinds of local stories and legends about some woods nearby, including a few mysteries occurrences.
What’s the Name o Meanwhile, occult scholar Mark Blackman befriends the family while tracing links between old man Kessler and a breakout of occult mania in Germany. A family moves to a rural area, settling in an older home.
Faerid author is so obviously infatuated with his main female rraymond it makes you feel dirty reading it. This is a darker version of faerie, alongside a more normal world, if that makes sense. His descriptions of the worlds he visits are vivid; you not only see them, you feel them. The last part of the book just spiraled downward and ended about how you might expect. Feist offers a classic horror setup as the model Hastings family top-author Dad; homemaker step-Mom; teen daughter Gabbie; eight-year-old twins Sean and Patrick settle from California into the isolated Kessler farm.
That scene alone told me more than I ever wanted to know about Raymond E.
Talw loving the Riftwar books and all the subsequent sequels and series, I had never even heard of this book until a coworker told me about it. I was a tad concerned after reading some of the comments but it’s a gripping read.
Other books like this. This book is better! If you want a good take on a similar theme, I recommend just about anything by Charles De Lint or Holly Black — steer clear of this one however. My parents owned a copy of it when I was very young and I was always fascinated and creeped out by the evocative cover with the lost shoe and the smear of blood. Zipes goes on to say: Jun 08, Nathan Johnson rated it did not like it. Not to say that the book doesn’t have a few flaws that I’ve probably overlooked over the years, if it’s true than I bought this book because Feizt was a big fan of Raymond E.
During that year Feist had some ideas for a novel about a boy who would be a magician.

I reread it as an adult not that long ago and it is still really creepy. The first time I read it, I enjoyed it.
I felt it held up well and overall certainly was an intelligent yet quite un This is the only stand alone novel that Feist has written. Published November 15th by Voyager first published January 1st The daughter has some reaction to being raped, but it is mostly her reaction to the strange faeirie happenings in the area, and NOT about her violation.
It is fantasy; it is horror. The second time, I couldn’t remember why I liked it to begin with. I read it many years ago and recently acquired it for my Kindle. I’d definitely nominate them as the main characters for a sequel.
Basically, it’s the equiv pages in and really enjoying the pacing of this story. No trivia or quizzes yet.
The first quarter of the book was slow and a little clunky; I felt it very contrived and awkward, almost like the author wasn’t quite sure how to get all his characters in one place, or how to introduce them once he brought them to the same location.

This could be as riveting or more so, exploring the oversexualizaton of our youth via this creepy and mysterious realm of faerie.
It’s my favorite genre, but is much better served by authors such as Charles de Lint, Neil Gaiman, Emma Bull, and others of that ilk. It’s about the Hastings, including their dog and cat, coming into contact with the world of Faerie which is practically in their back yard.
I just don’t feel feisst many authors get it right and it disturbs me. My problem upon re-reading Faerie Tale was twofold.
