Sentenced to death, Eilidh ran—away from faerie lands, to the streets of Perth, Scotland. Just as she has grown accustomed to exile, local police discover a mutilated body outside the abandoned church where she lives. Recognising the murder as the work of one of her own kind, Eilidh must choose: flee, or learn to tap into the forbidden magic that cost her everything.

9/10

When Ms Drummond contacted me about her new novel Blood Faerie, I had no idea what an astonishing world awaited me! Faeries, crime, mystery, romance, suspense, fantasy all rolled into one to make an outstanding novel.

I mentioned in my review of Ordinary Angels “my mind would drift, but that might just be because too many things were happening at once in the story.” but not in this novel. It was perfectly paced and the story flowed effortlessly.

Eilidh and Quinton are fascinating characters that are richly described! I kept having visions of the Eilidh looking something like this:

Although the cover really captures her essence.

Quinton Munro has a “strong” feel to him, like he will protect you no matter what. Together these characters tell a story than I can’t wait to continue!

I liked that Eilidh isn’t a stereotypical pretty fairy with wings. I also enjoyed the crime scene and druid scenario.

I love the little bits where the Fae are introduced to technology and their responses to it!

Will most certainly read the next one in the series!

Spoilers:

Pretty shocked that Soar died, I thought he would be in the next one and there might be a triangle. But I love being taken by surprise and I’m not too fond of triangles.

I hoped Beniss would stay alive so she could mentor Eilidh.

“His mum had loved her ornaments, as she called them, but when she died, his dad waited about a week before boxing them up and giving them to a charity shop. “I loved your mum, Quinton,” he’d said, “but I hate them fuckin’ porcelain cats.”
