I decided to try and find a new fantasy epic recently, and had the pleasure of reading To Carve a Fae Heart by Tessonja Odette, the first in her The Fair Isle Series. This captivating story follows a young girl, Abigail, as she discovers the hidden realms of Faerie and the secrets of her own identity.
The worldbuilding in this novel is truly breathtaking. Odette creates a vibrant and immersive world that is full of magic and wonder. The vivid descriptions of the land of Faerie and its inhabitants kept me captivated throughout the entire book. Odette has crafted a story that is both beautiful and captivating, and I found myself quickly drawn in by the charm of the world she has created.
The characters in this book are also incredibly engaging. Abigail is a strong and determined protagonist who I found easy to relate to. I also loved the other characters in this book, from the wise and mysterious faeries to the evil and powerful villains. Each character was unique and brought something special to the story.
My favorite aspect of this book was the plot. Odette weaves a complex and intriguing story that kept me hooked from start to finish. She builds suspense by slowly revealing the secrets of Abigail’s past, and I found myself theorizing throughout the entire book. The plot twists kept me guessing until the very end and I couldn’t put the book down!
Overall, To Carve a Fae Heart by Tessonja Odette is an enchanting read that I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels. The worldbuilding is stunning, the characters are captivating, and the plot is thrilling. I couldn’t put this book down, and I’m sure you won’t be able to either.
