Faerie Taleby Raymond E. Feist
Synopses & Reviews
Phil Hastings was a lucky man. He had money, a growing reputation as a screenwriter, a happy, loving family with three kids, and the house of his dreams in rural upstate New York. But then came the Magic, the Bad Thing, the Faerie, and the Fool — and the resurrection of a primordial war that the whole human race could lose.
"A contemporary novel of masterful horror replete with magic, fantasy, and more than a little stylish eroticism." The Washington Post
"Absorbing, though-provoking, and thoroughly magical. Feist's skillfully crafted prose illuminates many of the darker sides of fairy stories....Try it as a bedtime story...but only on nights when you can take some time getting to sleep." The West Coast Review Of Books
"Feist writes skillfully and his imagination is prolific." Rave Reviews
"[A] slick, only partially successful novel....While the plot has some intriguing features, the book is afflicted by a superficiality of characterization and a flat, uninteresting style." Publishers Weekly
"An oft-told tale of a new family in a haunted house/land, this better-than-average dark fantasy novel features solid writing, strong development of both human and nonhuman characters, and a well-realized sense of geography." Library Journal
"Faerie Tale is sleek. It's a smart, harrowing sleigh ride down a very dark mountain." Richard Christian Matheson
Phil Hastings was a lucky man-he had money, a growing reputation as a screenwriter, a happy, loving family with three kids, and he'd just moved into the house of his dreams in rural of magic-and about to be altered irrevocably by a magic more real than any he dared imagine. For with the Magic came the Bad Thing, and the Faerie, and then the cool. . .and the resurrection of a primordial war with a forgotten people-a war that not only the Hastings but the whole human race could lose.
