The Great Faerie Strike by Spencer Ellsworth

45753959. sy475

This is yet another backlist book that I requested and received a long time ago. It is a fantasy story that adds something different to the issues plaguing the characters: a capitalist economy.
Our leading lady is a half-vampire who escapes her mother’s clutches with great difficulty. She is trying to get back into the world that she actually belongs in, but things have changed in the time she was locked away. Jane had a plan to get a job and make her life in Fairie, but things are not going her way. She is hungry, worried and forces an unlikely creature to help her. This relationship changes over the time of the narrative.
In the backdrop, we have changing times, where the human world is closely linked economically with the magical folks, but this leads to a lot more complications than many understand. There is also the mystery of what the werewolves are up to to investigate.
Overall it is a fast-paced story with added input being provided at a reasonable frequency to keep the reader’s attention. The worldbuilding and the dialogues given to the different characters were entertaining. It could have been a shorter book, and I would have liked it even more!
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
