Heart of the Fae characters ã 9 Emma Hamm í 9 Download review Heart of the Fae Beauty and the Beast meets Irish Mythology in this sweeping retelling of the beloved fairytaleOnce upon a time A plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Uí Néill leaving a young midwife’s father with months to live To save her people Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae She must travel across the sea. 375 fairytale enchanted This book is for you if you suspect an intricate combination of Celtic fairytale x beauty beast is the retelling you ve needed all your life Be aware that it gives uite a lot of room to romance OverallMy heart started pounding in anticipation of a beauty the beast x Irish Celtic mythology crossover when I discovered Heart of the Fae At least to my knowledge Celtic mythology and fiction don t mix well in the literary world yet mostly because authors rip the scarce evidence we have about the civilizations in uestion apart and then put it back together the results excruciating I knew this of course but my silly heart still hoped for the bestAltogether I am very happy with the audiobook Both the world building and the style of story telling agreed with me It definitely carries typical elements of fairytales but also allows for a strong female character and a less creepy version of Beauty and the Beast Although it s still one of my favourite childhood movies I feel increasing discomfort over the depiction of romance in the conventional story Here on the other hand the Stockholm Syndrome factor has not crossed my mind once The narrator was Irish voice artist Siobhan Waring and I absolutely loved her She narrated both the chapters from Sorcha and Eamon s point of view and did a great impression of the different voices including the side charactersEven though I was satisfied to a large extent I felt that Emma missed out on a bit of the potential that Celtic mythology and even archaeological facts offers to make for a realistic fairytale I m aware it sounds like an oxymoron but I truly believe it is possible to smartly weave facts and fiction together in a way that satisfies both a Celtic civilizations enthusiast and a fairytale lover I guess to make for a convincing romance she had to drop a bit of that and give time to the development of Sorcha s and Aemon s feelings I suppose we had it coming but I still understand reactions such as this one I wish some of that on page time would have been sacrificed in favour of a adventure driven plot I m excited to see how the story of Sorcha continues I still believe Emma s story has the capacity to incorporate both aspects What s happening The disgraced prince was sent away to a phantom isle which could only be seen once every 7 years He begged his family to allow him to remain but they had no petty for the man who had hidden his true nature The firstborn son of the seelie king faded into myth then legend then nothing at all Sorcha knows nothing of this tragedy as she sets out to find a cure that will save her people from the blood beetle plague It is uite a personal uest Sorcha s father the man who put superstition and judgement aside to raise a little girl that grew into a confident kind and self sufficient woman is suffering from the plague The trouble is how can you win a race that seems to have different finishing lines and obstacles on the way each of them potentially fatalCon un seelie are tricky people not to be messed with already sorta messing with a couple of fairies moody prince with pretty stones all over his bodyPro women

This was rather unfortunately not for me I was expecting Celtic mythology sweeping atmospheric tension and a slow building romance Instead this felt like the most contrived relationship I ve ever read with a plot that plays second place to the rather bland main characters Sorcha is a midwife who lives above a brothel who somehow makes a random deal with the Fae to save her family from a beetle plague and ends up living on an island with the brooding Eamonn Eamonn is the former high prince of the Seelies but he s been banished due to somehow being cursed with an usual appearance that leaves his body covered in crystals Yeah explain that Because the book doesn t Somehow after two conversations the pair decide that they love each other and Sorcha casually forgets her promise to her family to snog Eamonn and brood over his lost kingdom Sorcha seems to only have two emotions angry and naively happy while Eamonn is firmly the one dimensional broody tough guy with a heart of gold That s it Their relationship has no build up no angst and as a result it just didn t feel genuine And at times incredibly cliche and cringy Don t get me started on the awful sexy times The plot is also lacking in depth with lots of telling instead of showing It felt simplistic and predictable and for me very average Plot twists and reveals are just thrown into the text in a very heavy handed and unexplained way lessening their effect and adding to my frustration Also what there is of a plot makes NO SENSE There s hardly any world building with 90% of the plot taking place on the island meaning I had no real idea what the world was like or the politics of the various courts in any great depth This meant I just didn t really care On top of that the ending felt incredibly rushed and poorly concluded In fact there was nothing concluded instead ending on an incredibly irritating cliffhanger I think the only redeeming feature was the secondary characters on the island who at least brought a little bit of the mythology to life and kept me reading Honestly this is why I don t read much romance focused fantasy It all just feels way too overdone and underwritten for me to care I ll stick to Maas if I want grumpy territorial Fae and I ve realised I really don t Enemy on the Euphrates people banished him.

Heart of the Fae characters ã 9 Emma Hamm í 9 Download review Heart of the Fae To a cursed isle for his disfigurement now king of criminals and fools With the help of brownies pixies and will o’ the wisps Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart. Spirits of the East and Air I welcome you into our circle and bid you well tidings On this sacred night of Samhain come dance with us Spirits of the South and Fire I welcome you to feast with us on this sacred night Spirits of the West and Water I welcome you to drink and be merry with us tonight Join our revelries on this sacred eve Spirits of the North and Earth I welcome you to this hall and ask that you tell us stories from ages past Speak easy and loosen thy tongue on this sacred nightI m always looking for faerieelven stories to read so you could imagine how excited I was to find Heart of the Fae by Emma Hamm Its a lovely retelling of Beauty and the Beast with an Irish folklore twist Sorcha a young midwife is deep in peril when a plague sweeps across her village and takes root in her father She had always been respectful of the Fae leaving them offerings and praying to their deities so when faced with such tragedy she turns to them for a favor In return Sorcha finds herself sent on a suicidal mission across realms to the Otherworld where the Fae reside It is there she will meet Eamonn a banished king with a curse that allows for crystals to grow beneath his skin instead of flesh and blood He is your typical brooding male protagonist set on being miserable and sulking for eternity Because the Seelie don t take to deformities kindly Eamonn was considered a monster and was tortured by his twin brother so that he wouldn t stand a chance coming king His people turned against him and now he surrounds himself with simpler Fae that become like a family to the wayward prince Together they will need to rely upon one another in order to save her family and reclaim his throne I enjoyed this story The world building was rich and lyrical the characters were beautifully described in their own gruesome makings and the amount of references to Fae folklore made me beyond happy Instead of just using the Fae as her mythical creatures Hamm included beings like selkies brownies nymphs and boggarts And those are only a few I think that when an author attempts to write a story about these specific beings they should always try to include a varying array of them because after all the Fae are only one branch of species in relation to their thousands of kin Its an entire spectrum of earth spirits we re referencing Hamm even touched upon a favorite element of mine the Seelie and the Unseelie Often times the Unseelie are described as the dark Fae usually autumn and winter and the Seelie are the light spring and summer In this book the seasons don t play any role but the notion of good and evil certainly does Lesser Fae are those that don t appear humanoid by Seelie standards or don t appear grotesue enough by Unseelie standards There is a social contract within both major realms and the political intrigue on the Seelie side will throw in a few plot twists that will make you uestion whether you re reading about the right Fae The writing was easy to follow simply put it was straight forward with a sprinkling of poetic moments here and there I prefer emotion and prose in the books I read but maybe I m biased because I still enjoyed this one very much Another slight issue I had with it was the romance Of course I was rooting for the two main characters to get hitched since the first page because of the way the synopsis promises them to be loversbut it somehow still felt forced Thankfully it didn t feel rushed but there were a few times that I had to contemplate why the one character was confessing their emotions to the other when it felt like their wasn t a basis to their emotional ties just yet The plot was decent but you can surmise a great deal of what will happen because this is a loose retelling of a story that has been retold millions of times People even draw parallels to another Beauty and the Beast inspired story that also includes the Fae and yes you guessed it A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas Even though I ve already begun to see people compare the two I will just put my two cents out there and say that while they share glaringly obvious similarities these stories are highly different and uniue in their own waysAll that being said if you re in the mood for a cute romance or like me in the mood to always read about the Fae here s your next book I m currently reading the seuel and thus far it s even better than the first
