Book review: The Faelti by Rachel Pudsey
✰✰✰✰ out of 5
Just finished reading this and it's another good, quickish read, I'm just confused about the King, Queen and Queen Mother bits is all.
Queen Mother calls the King her son so surely she should be King Mother unless the King and Queen are siblings in which case they wouldn't be ruling together and they mention each other as husband and wife, in which case there would only be 1 ruling party (the King) and the Queen would be a Princess, just like with the current royal family, right?
Also, it doesn't really get going for a couple of chapters again - waaay to much back story that could easily have been woven into the story and it starts with a view of someone that isn't mentioned again... would have been better to dive straight in to the action from where book 1 left off... this one ends on a cliff-hanger too that I bet won't be taken straight into the next book, disappointingly.
I know there needs to be back story, but the first couple of chapters could easily have been taken out and got straight into the story-telling from where the first book left off.
If you're after a YA fantasy read then give both of these books a read, just be prepared to read a couple of chapters at the start of each book that would have been a lot better without them in it.
