Book Review! The Faerie Games by Michelle Madow

The Faerie Games (Dark World: The Faerie Games #1) by Michelle Madow
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy Romance)
Date Published:  August 30, 2019
Publisher: Dreamscape Publishing

I’m Selena Pearce, and in the past few days I’ve been kidnapped by faeries, gifted with powerful magic, and forced by the gods to compete in a twisted game to the death.

Growing up on the magical island of Avalon should be great... but I have no magic to speak of. And my parents forbid me from leaving.

So when I sneak out to Earth for a night and meet a hottie named Julian with ice blue eyes that leave me breathless, of course I say yes to a date with him. But when Julian pulls me through a magical portal, I realize he isn’t human. He’s a half-blood faerie sent to bring me to his realm of the Otherworld. Because apparently, I’m a half-blood faerie, too. And I’ve been chosen to compete in the annual Faerie Games—a brutal, gladiator-like competition where half-bloods fight to the death.

Too bad I can’t get my new magic under control. But with all eyes on me, I only have two options: Die in the Faerie Games, or win and earn my freedom.

Now the other players—including Julian, who still captivates me even though I should hate him—better watch out. Because I’m determined to get home.

And I’ll fight anyone blocking my path to get there.

Full of magic, mythology, adventure, and romance, The Faerie Games is the first book in an addicting young adult urban fantasy series by USA Today bestselling author Michelle Madow that will keep you reading late into the night! 

The Faerie Games is the first book in the Dark World: The Faerie Games by Michelle Madow. This was like a fae version of the Hunger Games. I liked Selena from the start, and it was very easy to get pulled into her life. I liked how Roman Mythology was woven into the Faerie work. That was a unique spin on things. There was a bit of action and a hint of romance. I think we're in store for much more of each in the following books. Like all books by this author, the story completely swept me out of reality, and it was all over way before I wanted it to be. Fortunately for us, there are more books, and the Faerie Games are just beginning!
