Faelorehn - Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you!


Faelorehn is the first book in The Otherworld series.


I should have read some of the reviews on booklikes or GR before deciding to request this book from Netgalley. But then again, I usually don't do this so to keep a unprejudiced mind and make sure I don't get any spoilers.


Meghan is a strange girl. It's very important that you remember that, and in case you should forget, it's repeated every few pages so don't worry. After being found alone wandering the streets in LA aged two and being yo-yoed between foster homes because she's weird, she's finally found a home. Or so she believes...


It's not just the story that seems to go nowhere and to be as lost as Meghan is. There's some other very annoying things like Instalove and the plot was very similar to that of The Winter People. And some of the reasoning is kind of ridiculous. An example. Meghan has this friend that's into wicca and likes to dress up in black dresses. Meghan says she used to think her friend was just trying to get attention, but after she offers Meghan a piece of information printed from Wikipedia, she changes her mind in this matter. I mean, everyone who goes to great lengths to print something from wikipedia must be the real deal. (Uhh?)


I was disappointed by the story, even though the premise sounded very nice. I don't think it will surprise anyone that I won't be continuing this series...
