Shimmerspell: A Faerie Tale Girl Novella, #1
by Kimberly Spencer

Published April 8, 2011

When sixteen-year-old Jensen Meadows finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient faerie war, she soon learns that faeries aren't made of sparkly goodness. They're vicious. And worse, they're after her. With the help of Liam Casey, she delves into their world to find her missing sister and begins to suspect that her whole life has been nothing more than a faerie tale.

But maybe some truths should never be revealed...


This book did not grab my attention immediately. Parts of it felt slow, while I wish more time had been spent on other sections. That said, it was a fun story, and a quick read (since it's a novella). The main character, Jensen, left me wishing for something, and I can't decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I loved Liam and Fiona and wished there was more of them in the story!

Bonus: This book is currently free on Amazon!

3/5 stars
