My thoughts:

Yay! Another great elven book!

The elves are slowly dying because of a crisis on water and food. Maria and Daniel set out to a quest in finding solution to this - the White Fairy! 

Liked the characters and the twists and turns. While I enjoyed the story, there are some parts I got confused due to the number of characters, can't remember who's who. The romance is enough to keep you interested and there's a bit humor too. The first time I 'met' the narrator, I thought I was reading a draft of the story (this book is an ARC) and it was a mistake that those were included in the book but oh boy, it was actually part of the story. Weird but in a good way.

Overall, it was a good story... recommended for those into elven book.

About the book:

As the elves face extinction due to a natural crisis, their belligerent king is bent on self-preservation. It falls to reluctant hero Daniel to go in search of the White Fairy – his last hope for answers and his people’s last chance for a future.

An unforgettable cast of fairy tale creatures come together in this ground-breaking epic fantasy. With never-before-seen storytelling techniques, Fairydust is packed full of ingenious, inventive layouts and concepts which reflect the twists in the rich, fast-moving plot.

Fresh from his acclaimed thriller debut End from the Beginning, Taylor once again blends heart-stopping action, gut-wrenching passion and side-splitting humour – this time held together with a sprinkling of fairy dust. Join him for a journey the like of which the world has never seen before.

About the author:

Simon lives with Anna-Marie and their daughter Megan in Renfrewshire.
