Back in January of this year, I read and reviewed Rogue Fae, a companion novella to the Starseed Trilogy by Ashley McCleo. I really enjoyed that series (and I’ve reviewed all the books on my blog already- sorry, I’m too lazy to find and repost the links) so this was a fun little read. Here’s the blurb for the book:
The Nashville coven is in a tizzy, which is to be expected. Murder does tend to bring out peoples’ anxiety.
What’s unexpected is that the coven asks visiting witches Gwenn, Rena, and Emily, to help find the fae throwing Nashville into disarray. After all, they have the rare magical skill set no one in the coven can boast.
However, as the trio follows the clues the fae left, they unearth something fishy. There seems to be more to the string of death and destruction the fae left behind than meets the eye. One member of the coven is being aggressive, and Gwenn can’t help but feel uncomfortable around another.
And that’s not even considering the decades-long feud between the fae tribe and the witches that the trio unearths.
A feud no one in the Nashville coven bothered to mention.
Coincidence? The trio thinks not.
Now all they have to do is prove it.
Rogue Fae is a prequel, stand-alone novella to The Starseed Trilogy. If you like realistic, smart characters and fast-paced mystery steeped in deceit and small-town politics you’ll love it!
And here’s the cover!
Here is my review:
Rogue Fae is a prequel novella set in the Starseed Universe. I’m a big fan of the Starseed Universe trilogy, so I couldn’t wait to see which characters would be featured in this book! Minor spoilers are present in my review, so please don’t read if you haven’t read the original books yet!
Rogue Fae follows Gwenn, who is one of the triplets’ aunts. She goes to a concert and meets up with Rena, who ends up being Lily’s adoptive mother. Talk about a small world! Gwenn and Rena hit it off right away and decide to go on a road trip together. Soon, they meet up with Emily, who ends up being one of Lily’s most beloved friends.
The three girls go to stay at a local coven and discover that there is a rogue fae supposedly going on a murdering spree. Because they are up for adventure anywhere they go, they decide to investigate the rogue fae, and they discover nothing is quite as it seems.
This was a nice little story, and I enjoyed dipping back into the Starseed Universe!
I gave Rogue Fae 4/5 stars on Goodreads!
