The Reviled (Dark Fey Book One) – My Review!!
I’ve had my eye on The Reviled (Dark Fey Book One) by Cynthia A. Morgan for a while. I added it to my TBR list and it finally reached the top. Read on for my thoughts on this epic fantasy novel!
Synopsis (from the author):
Ayla has an exceptional combination of magical gifts: empathic telepathy, discernment, and the gift of healing.
Gairynzvl was abducted by The Reviled at the age of seven, and suffered cruel neglect, abuse and deprivation – a process designed to turn childfey from the Light.
Now, fifteen years later, he is a Dark One who lingers in the shadows, trying to communicate with Ayla.
Through her extraordinary gifts and against all odds, Ayla listens to him when no others will, and touches his pain.
What I liked about The Reviled:
The Reviled (Dark Fey Book One) had everything I like in a fantasy novel. Good characters, surprising twists, a little romance, and action. Ayla was a personable character, but Gairynzyl stole the show. A Dark Fey trying to return to the light, his contact with Ayla sets the stage for the story. Ayla’s struggle to decide between two worlds and two loves made it a great tale. Overall, an excellent read!
What I didn’t like about The Reviled:
In spite of all the good things in the book, it did get a little slow in spots. Other than that, not much to complain about!
The Reviled (Dark Fey Book One) kept me turning pages. Good characters, nice storytelling, good conflict, and well-written action sequences make this a book for any fantasy fan.
