  Welcome to Sunday all , hope your weekend has gone well . Today we are going to review a new author to me and her cool twist on fae . Amy Bearce and her book FAIRY KEEPER ( World of Aluvia)

                            BOOK BLURB 

Forget cute fairies in pretty dresses.

In the world of Aluvia, most fairies are more like irritable, moody insects, and almost everyone views the fairy keeper mark as a gift. But not fourteen-year-old Sierra. She hates being a fairy keeper, but the birthmark is right there on the back of her neck. It shows everyone she was born with the natural ability to communicate, attract, and even control the tiny fairies whose nectar is amazingly powerful.

Fairy nectar can heal people, but it is also a key ingredient in synthesizing Flight, an illegal elixir that produces dreaminess, apathy and hallucinations. She’s forced to care for a whole hive of the bee-like beasties by her Flight-dealing, dark alchemist father.

Then one day, Sierra discovers the fairies of her hatch are mysteriously dead. The fairy queen is missing. Her father’s Flight operation is halted, and he plans to make up for the lost income by trading her little sister to be an elixir runner for another dark alchemist, a dangerous thug. Desperate to protect her sister, Sierra convinces her father she can retrieve the lost queen and get his operation up and running.

The problem? Sierra’s queen wasn’t the only queen to disappear. They’re all gone, every single one, and getting them back will be deadly dangerous.

Sierra journeys with her best friend and her worst enemy—assigned by her father to dog her every step—to find the missing queens. Along the way, they learn that more than just her sister’s life is at stake if they fail.

There are secrets in the Skyclad Mountains where the last wild fairies were seen. The magic Sierra finds there has the power to transform their world, but only if she can first embrace her calling as a fairy keeper.

                     MY REVIEW 

      This is a ya story about a young girl who keeps fairies and harvests their nectar . Sierra is a fairy keeper and actually really hates doing what she is doing . The fairies are actually evil little devils  She is a natural fairy keeper and the proof is in the birthmark on her neck for all to see . That means she can communicate with the fairies . Until the day she comes to the hive and finds out most of her fairies are dead and the queen is missing . With her little sister traded to a dark man and her best friend dogging Sierra's every move she must find the missing queens and get her sister back . The road is dangerous and the secrets of the Skyclad mountain's wild fairies were seen . Will Sierra find her sister and the power that could change her life forever  but will she embrace her calling 
  I truly enjoyed the characters in this book . Sierra has a fierce loyalty to here sister Phoebe . She truly loves her and would do anything for her . Sierra is your typical teenager in some ways . She has mistrusts and a bit of hostility towards her friend Nell . And she has some real awkwardness when Corbin is around. Then there is Micah well there is more awkwardness and well feelings that she just doesn't understand. Then there is the hatred for her father which I will tell you is really warranted . He is a vile vile man . These characters are so well written and you will love them . They will get into your heart and let you love them . 
   This is the first book I have read of this author. This is a book for tweens and teens but adults can read it also . The author's description of the Aluvia is vivid and the imagery she uses brings the world and her characters to life with passion and gusto . You will get sucked in by the second chapter . You will love the characters and the story line . Your kids will love it to . There are a few areas where you might thing you have it all figured out but the author will take you in a different direction . So if you want a twist in the fairy story line check it out . This would be a great book for you tweens reading list this fall .
