    One thought on “Faerie Wars”

    1. Okay, I'm going to give my critique! I still am glassy-eyed from staying up *literally* all night to finish this book! When you cannot pry a book from your fingers, that means it's good, right? I certainly think so.- To be fair: This is a down-the-line sci-fi/fantasy, IMO. As someone who has extremely little patience for and limited understanding of fiction technology, I could have done with less "science" but that's a person-to-person thing. My little brothers read this series and recommended i [...]

    2. Where to beginAh! I have a question! IS THIS REALLY SUPPOSED TO BE A YOUNG ADULT STORY? It was more like something I would have read when I was 10. This book is classified as YA and the reviews hype it as, "The next Harry Potter!" I had high hopes for this book and they fell short; oh so short. I will not say it was poorly written grammatically or structurally. I would give it somewhere between a 3 and a 4 out of 5 in that respect. However, the story-line is a 2 out of 5 without a doubt—in som [...]

    3. God, it's been so long since I last read this but I adored the trilogy - and now I find it's not a trilogy! So it's time for another re-read

    4. I think I would have liked this much better if I were under the age of 15, appreciated British humor, and was more interested in action & adventure instead of just science fiction/urban fantasy. It's a pretty good story, with a bit of silly humor and a bit of potty humor (boils on the bottom). The villains were laughable in their ridiculousness and the younger characters really took charge and made the important and adult decisions. Some scenes may be unsuitable for particularly sensitive ch [...]

    5. I have to be honest This book got off to a s-l-o-o-o-w start for me. I had probably read about a third of the book or more before things picked up. I can't say that Henry's backstory about his family situation added much to the book, either--it didn't seem very relevant to the plot, but rather a chance to introduce the idea of the possibility of having a parent who turns out to be a homosexual. And no, I am not suggesting there is something wrong with that, and I assume that Brennan gives us so [...]

    6. While reviewing this I had a hard time between choosing a one star or a two star. It wasn't the worst thing I read but that still doesn't mean it was good. To clarify, let me go into more detail on what I'm talking about. Instead of an interesting plot with good characters and a threatening villain, we get a few subplots and noninteresting characters with an okayish setting trying to combine fantasy with science and also having a villain who is more of a joke than actually terrifying and threate [...]

    7. *** SERIOUS SPOILER ALERT - DON'T READ UNLESS YOU HAVE FINISHED THE BOOK*** Faerie Wars - Somewhere between Artemis Fowl Potter and ???? Henry, the main character in the book, is the typical teen-with-problems character. Just when the book seems to be a candidate for a daytime family-tell-all show, Henry starts seeing faeries.Henry is also somewhat of a dolt, who seems to fall into bad to worse situations, only to have his fat pulled out of the fire by the other characters in the book. I guess t [...]

    8. I recently picked up several fantasy books in the young adult range, this one being the first. The book begins with our main hero, Henry, a young boy living in England. Henry is friends with a weird and highly paranoid old man, is saving up for an ipod, and just found out that his mother is having an affair with his father's secretary. A bit harsh for an opening, but there's certainly no doubt that Henry lives in the real, modern-day world.Then there's Pyrgus, the other hero of the story. His wo [...]

    9. After someone tries to kill Pyrgus, the Crown Prince of the faerie world, his father, the Purple Emperor, sends him off into the Analogue World (aka the world we humans live in) for safety from their political enemies, the Faeries of the Night. However, the translator they used to send Pyrgus into the other world has been sabotaged, sending Pyrgus drastically off course, landing him in the middle of present-day England, in the backyard of a paranoid old Mr. Fogarty. Mr. Fogarty enlists the help [...]

    10. Despite the excellent narration on the audiobook, I was disappointed by this. The book is listed for ages "10 and up", but this just isn't altogether appropriate for children. Now that's something I don't say every day. I am not usually the type of person to talk about politically correct, nor am I one of those insane types who think Disney is too violent. But this book starts off with the boy finding out his mom is having an affair with another woman--I mean, who wants to read about that? YA, a [...]

    11. While this book was written for young adultsere are some things in this novel that I would not like my tween or even teen reading. The book begins with Henry finding out his mother is having an affair with his fathers secretary. I found this totally irrelevant other than to leave Henry in a horrible situation. This could have been arranged by many other means.Further more there is graphic discriptions of demon congering with the use of animal sacrifice. While the "demons" are really just intelli [...]

    12. Pugnali affilati, grimori polverosi e un vecchio allampanato. Se almeno uno di questi elementi ti sconfinfera, allora questo libro può fare per te.Adatto alla lettura ad alta voce e ai lettori più giovani che non temano la comparsa di un demone millenario nel buio della loro cameretta.Ho letto questo volume due volte, la seconda è stata a Settembre '15, la prima approssimativamente dieci anni prima e mi è piaciuto in entrambe le occasioni.

    14. I really couldn’t get into this book. Maybe I’ll try again later. I get that it’s supposed to be YA/Middle grades, but it doesn’t match. Parts of the book are extremely juvenile and other parts are quite mature.

    15. I picked this up thinking it was a children's book, but lol nope. It's gruesome, and touches on a lot of mature themes such as mental illness, betrayal, murder, child and animal abuse List goes on and on. Also contains reference to homosexuality and mild sexual content (voyeurism, caught-in-the act, nothing too graphic). Then, gasp ! Wrapped up with fantasy-meets-steampunk/science, this book blew me away with its constant plot twists. LIKE AT EVERY CORNER, I'd be given hints that are both mislea [...]

    16. This was a pretty decent book, though not something that gripped me from start to finish, even though I had hoped it would. It's difficult for me to write anything less than a stellar review, but in all fairness, I'll be honest. "Fairie Wars" was not written for me and mine. This book would fit very nicely on the shelf of a young guy - maybe a Tolkien fan who's looking to upgrade his geek standing (not that there's anything wrong with Tolkien, I'm just borrowing the stereotype here).It's an odd [...]

    17. Henry Atherton una mattina scopre che sua madre è lesbica ed ha una relazione con la segretaria di suo padre, Anais Ward. Sconcertato da questa notizia, si reca dal signor Alan Fogarty, vecchio eccentrico, ex-fisico nucleare ed ex-rapinatore di banche, per il quale Henry tiene in ordine la casa.Pyrgus Malvae, un giovane Elfo della Luce, primogenito del Monarca Danaus Plexippus del Regno degli Elfi, si trova nei guai dopo aver commesso il furto di una preziosa fenice ai danni di Lord Cossus Rodi [...]

    18. Fearie Wars by Herbie Brenan is a wonderfull book filled with mystery, action, magic, science, and love. It all starts out with Henry who found out a magical faerei in the back yard of Mr.Fogarty, an old man who believes in faeries and aliens and thinks that the CIA is always after him. After a few days with the little Fearie boy (Pyrgus) they realize that he is actually a prince from another world sabotaged and nearly killed by many Nighters in his world.With the faerie boy there Henry found a [...]

    19. This is a fun, light YA fantasy that moves back and forth between our world and an alternate dimension. Though it wasn't anything particularly spectacular to read, it was funny and the plot keeps you moving along. The only thing I really didn't like was the ludicrous "lesbian mom" plot, that was just treated quite badly and detracted from the actual fantasy part of the book. I understand wanting to give the kid a personal crisis in this dimension to contrast with what happens to him in the faeri [...]

    20. Boring. I read the first few chapters, and was subjected to a load of uninteresting set up culminating in some cat having caught a little fairy. Then it switched to some guy, human sized, but in a magic city, but then he's in a mine field. It just didn't keep my interest. Seriously, we finally see a fairy after all that time, and then switch back to boring? No war yet either. Definitely not a book that grabs your attention. Like so many others, it is merely a set up book for a series Well, I was [...]

    21. DNF - 70 pages in and not much is happening. The book had a strong start with interesting characters, but when it barely shifts focus to introduce the fantasy aspect, it, instead, switches scenes entirely to a different set of new characters with no hint that they're ever going to intersect with the first story being told. Baffling is the best description. The plot isn't bad; it isn't good; it's MIA.

    22. I gave this novel about 30 pages and found myself not engaged whatsoever. SPOILERS: The whole mother having an affair with the secretary was an interesting change as to why a child's parents break up but that wasn't enough to keep me going. Overall, I found it too slow for my tastes. MY GRADE: C minus; WHEN READ: January 2012.

    23. I disliked this book to the point I did not finish it. It didn't take long to get to the part where they were throwing live kittens in the vat to make glue, a character took a goat dead for four days, skinned and gutted it and nailed the hide and then the guts to the wall in a particular pattern for a ritual. Just not my thing. Maybe it got better but I had had enough.

    24. Little iffy in the beginning, but I actually really liked it. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the series goes!

    26. This was my favourite series (apart from Harry Potter) when I was around 12-13 and I decided it was time to see if it stood the test of time. And, well, mostly it did! I still really enjoyed it, I love the characters and the story is still really entertaining - but I can´t judge how much of my enjoyment is nostalgia.The main problem this series has is, that it just couldn´t decide on a genre. It reads like a middle grade novel but is mostly advertised as young adult. The characters are suppose [...]

    27. Easy to follow plot. Diverse characters of different backgrounds, allegiances, personalities, and desires. Good world-building. I don't like the explanation behind UFO abductions. Well I guess I just think portraying them as real even in a fictional standpoint seems silly but then I do like the faeries and demons, so maybe I'm the one who's silly.Fogarty was my favorite character. I guess I like the old crazy mechanics. I liked the codes he used and his paranoia. I liked how he passionate explai [...]

    28. Light entertaining read. Started out VERY slow and I almost didn't finish it but it was ok. Not a masterpiece but after it got started there were a lot of moving pieces.This is the story of a young man named Henry Atherton who helps a seemingly paranoid older man named Mr. Fogarty with light housework. Henry is the average teenager coming a from a two parent home. His life is upended @ home with a shocking reality. At the same time there is a whole other world we've never known of which is the F [...]

    29. Faerie Wars is a story about a young boy and a faerie who live in two separate worlds; the boy’s mom having an affair on his dad, while the faerie is a hero trying to save his faerie world. With the boy’s help, they save the faerie world together.I didn’t enjoy the book, not because it was bad story-wise but, the fact it had subjects in it that were against my religion and had very sensitive topics. I honestly couldn’t believe we’d have a book like this in the school because of how sat [...]
