On my wishlist or not. Three stars or four stars. Bones of Faerie still has me in a state of indecision, but it has some cracking good ideas with interesting execution. Downright spooky at times, this story doesn’t feel quite complete – there’s more to be said about the effects of war and prejudice – and the lyrical prose may leave readers feeling a little distanced, but the refreshing lack of romance makes the story all the more focused for a tight, taught experience.
