Audiobook Review - The Dark Fae by Terry Spear @TerrySpear (The World of Fae #1)

The Dark Fae
The World of Fae #1
by Terry Spear

Goodreads blurb:  Alicia's always known she's different--that she can recognize the mischievous fae when they show up to "play" with the humans. Only now she's faced with one highly annoyed dark fae and she's certain he knows the truth about her. She can see him, which means her life is forfeit.

Add to that, his sister arrives, who wants to play, too. And their mother, the queen of the Denkar, will want Alicia's head, once she learns what Alicia can do.

And all because Alicia was attempting to rescue her friend, Cassie, on their beach excursion at South Padre Island, from the wicked fae. Now, Alicia has really gone and done it--and she's thinking she should have let the fae have his fun. Her friend's broken heart would be a lot easier to deal with, than Alicia losing her life.

But it is too late for regrets. As soon as she threw the soda at the dark fae's chest, she had declared war on the fae. And he is happy to take up the challenge.

About the Author:  Love, love, love romance, the paranormal, hunky Highlanders with their delicious brogue and hot kilts, so Terry Spear writes about those hunky Highlanders both in medieval times and as wolves in contemporary times. Jaguar shifters too! And young adult urban fantasy. And romantic suspense.

She grew up reading mystery, adventure, mythologies from around the world, ghost stories, the paranormal, fell in love with Dracula and Wolfman, and felt they needed loving too. Everyone should have someone to love. Which means her stories always have a HEA.

USA Today Bestseller residing in Central Texas from Sacramento, California who creates award-winning teddy bears too!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received a code from the author to listen to and review the audio version of the book, but I do own the ebook and plan to read it too!!!

The cover is awesome and beautiful, and I think it is intriguing to grab anyone’s attention.

Okay, so I’m bad for the fact I waited so long to get this up on my blog.  We have listened to many audiobooks since the school year started.  It is something my son and I love to do together in the car.  He even gets upset if we have to stop it for any reason, or if I forget to charge my ipod.  I have collected quite a few audiobooks through the Sync program, and I have won some too, but until Terry asked me to listen and review them, I just hadn’t done it yet.  Now that I have tried it, I’m addicted :)

I love how strong Alicia is, and she sticks with her friends no matter what.  Deveron (no idea if I’m spelling this right) is one of the guys you start out really wanting to smack, but he grows on you like moss :)  lol  At the end, I love his character too.  The Fae are so fickle, and they do a lot of posturing like they are ….not evil but bullies I guess.

Terry’s stories are always so enthralling when I read or listen to them :)  This was my Audible review:

Would you listen to The Dark Fae again? Why?
Yes, it was fun and had lots of action :) Also my son really liked it, so it is great for car rides :)

Who was your favorite character and why?
Alicia was my favorite because she was courageous and didn't let fear dictate what she knew was right. She was fiercely loyal and protects her friends. I love strong female characters :)

What about Jeanne Whitehouse’s performance did you like?
I love how she had several voices she used. Listening to audiobooks takes some getting used to. So you definitely want to listen to several before you decide you do or don't like them. I will definitely listen to more of Jeanne Whitehouse's recordings of audiobooks :)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes we both wanted to, but you know how things like work, school, and life tend to get in the way. I also had my car break down, and my grandma's car didn't have an adapter for my son was not happy we had to wait a week to finish our story :)

Any additional comments?
Terry Spear is an awesome author, and I always enjoy her books. I will always get her books whether in audio or book format. She rocks!!
Interested in reading???
