The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so 15-year-old Liza has been told. Nothing has been seen or heard from Faerie since, and Liza’s world bears the scars of its encounter with magic. Trees move with sinister intention, and the town Liza calls home is surrounded by a forest that threatens to harm all those who wander into it. Then Liza discovers she has the Faerie ability to see—into the past, into the future—and she has no choice but to flee her town. Liza’s quest will take her into Faerie and back again, and what she finds along the way may be the key to healing both worlds.
This story was one of adventure, bravery, survival and courage. Bones of Faerie was original and unique, and brought something to the table that not many faerie stories do. It was very interesting how nature itself is what threatened humanity. If one walked into the forests, there was a good possibility that one would never walk back out. But Liza braved it anyway, which is why I loved her. She suffered so much loss and abuse, but she didn’t allow that to get in her way. She was determined and caring, as well as very unselfish.

The plot was great, although it lagged in some parts. But the lags could be very easily overlooked. The writing also at times grated on my nerves due to the repetition, but the descriptions of the scenery were wonderful.

I definitely recommend this novel for any fans of faerie novels, and even non-fans. Also, I love the simplicity of the cover. It conveys a certain… peacefulness. I give this novel 4 out of 5 stars.
