Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"A contemporary novel of masterful horror replete with magic, fantasy, and more than a little stylish eroticism." The Washington Post

Review:

"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

Review:

"Feist writes skillfully and his imagination is prolific." Rave Reviews

Review:

"[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

Review:

"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

Review:

"Faerie Tale is sleek. It's a smart, harrowing sleigh ride down a very dark mountain." Richard Christian Matheson

Synopsis:

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.
