“The language of Faerie wasn’t uncommon within the city, although many of the residents had adopted a bastardized version or used a mixture along with the common tongue. But the ritualistic words he uttered were not common knowledge nor was the formality of his speech. The oath was enough to stay her hand, but she wasn’t foolish enough to lower her weapon.”
To Kill A Fae Summary
Marked for death, Sabine escaped from her home and fled to a human city.
But the Wild Hunt will never give up.
For more than a decade, she’s kept her head down and avoided talking about her past.
Even the best-laid plans fall apart…
When a charismatic stranger arrives, Sabine is unwittingly drawn to him and his power. Keeping her distance is nearly impossible, especially after a life debt is called due and she’s tasked with helping him steal a rare artifact.
In order to break the magical barriers protecting the item and save her companions, Sabine will be forced to drop her glamour and reveal her true identity.
The Fae aren’t the only ones hunting her.
And the most dangerous monsters aren’t always confined to the dark.
To Kill A Fae Review
This book has everything I love in an epic fantasy novel. Demons, Dragons, Fae (both Seelie and Unseelie) witches, pixies, dwarves and who knows what other host of magical creatures will emerge in the sequels. This epic fantasy is gripping from the very beginning, throwing you immediately into what seems like the middle of Sabine’s life.
Sabine has spent the last ten years hidden in the city of Akros. She escaped her Fae heritage and has hid herself under a glamour ever since. The Wild Hunt have pursued her once already. If she allows her glamour to drop or uses too much magic, she will be signalling her location to others. She has made allies out of demons and made bargains. placed marks, and made deals to keep herself safe. She exists in the shadows and calls on them to keep her hidden.
Only a couple of people know her true identity. An attempt on her life, introduces her to a charismatic stranger, Captain Malek, who assists in saving her life. Sabine can sense that this stranger, has a source of great power within him, but she can’t place what it is. He looks human, but so does she with her glamour. Whatever he is, he has acted like a friend and made an oath not harmed a hair on her head. Malek only wants something simple, which is lucky as favours does as they, can have a huge impact when given to the wrong person. Magic may be given, never taken. What someone does with it is anyone’s guess.
The most dangerous enemy to her is close at hand; although not everyone is what you assume.The long held beliefs passed down do not mean that some can’t change. Ancient rivalries among the magical communities are old news after all. Sabine will have to decide what to do and quickly, if she wants to escape the Hunt and others that want to kill her.
A fascinating start to the series, with different magical beings in the mix. Sabine and her group of allies have a long road ahead of them. I look forward to seeing where this group goes from here and what happens next. This was no short, little prequel to the series, but a full-blooded and detailed beginning to the tale reminding me of both Sarah J Maas’s Throne of Glass series and her more recent Crescent City. I look forward to reading the very next instalments. Definitely recommend this to all who love a bit of magic, fae, dragons and other magical beings.
I would like to thank Jamie A. Waters for sending me a free copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
