I really enjoyed this book. It was such an easy read, and it was so much fun. When you read the title, and see that it says faeries, you don't really expect what you get in M.C. Pearson's book. The characters were so unique and fun, and I loved that it takes place in a our own world.
Also, I am very much a sucker for the classic good verses evil theme, which F.A.I.R.I.E.S. definitely delivers. I think that Pearson does a great job of making the book believable. I always say that, in order for a fantasy story to be enjoyable, there has to be a willing suspension of disbelief, and I really had no problem with that while reading this book. I definitely recommend this if you're looking for a fun, adventure-packed, easy read.
One complaint I do have is the cover art. I had a really hard time with the cover. It's just so—frightening-looking, I guess. I just felt like, I'm the type of person who wants to know what my kids are reading, and if I was in a book store, I would have passed right over this book without even looking at the back, let alone reading it myself first.
