Publisher's Summary

Phil Hastings was a lucky man - he had money, a growing reputation as a screenwriter, and a happy, loving family with three kids, and he'd just moved into the house of his dreams in a rural area of magic - and was 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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Finally!!!!

Faerie Tale has been my favorite book since the first time I read it over a decade ago. I kept tweeting Raymond Feist, begging him to make this an Audible book and it has FINALLY happened! I actually renewed my Audible subscription just so I could get this book....now on to my review of the Audible book.

The story is great. I love how this dark fantasy really encapsulates the dark side of faeries. Even the supposed "good" faeries have a darker side which I think is closer to how faeries actually are or were... I felt so close and connected to all of the characters. I think they all worked really well together. It is a story I can read and listen to over and over again.

Now, as far as the narration goes, I'm usually not a fan and am unable to listen to male narrators. Though I feel Tim Flavin wasn't able to perform the female voices as well as I would have liked (he sounded like a guy normally sounds when he is mocking or mimicking a girl's voice) it wasn't so bad that I felt the need to not listen at all. All in all, I think he did a really great job for being a male narrator.

Overall, I give this book a thumbs up!
