Holy cow! Cady Hammer did such a fantastic job with her debut novel! It had me wanting more, and every time I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down! Chasing Fae is so beautifully written, and the story progression is top notch! I can’t believe this is her debut novel! When I first saw this book, I knew it was going to be good, but I didn’t realize it would be this good! It’s hard to believe that this was a debut book with the word that was created, but it’s so good! There are so many things I could spoil in this book, so I am only going to touch the surface of the book!
Grace Richardson is a young mortal woman whose only concerns are providing for her family, playing her violin, and spending as much time as possible with her brother, Leo. When Leo goes into service in the Fae’s world as a mercenary, she expects him to return with the honor that he deserves.
When Leo suddenly dies in an unspecified accident, not a word, medal, or penny comes down from the higher-ups. Suspecting foul play, Grace disguises herself as a Fae and sneaks into the Upper Realm to get some answers. She anticipates being in way over her head, but the Fae soldier who discovers her true identity only a day in? Not so much.
Now Grace is forced to drag Aiden along as she tries to work out exactly how and why her brother died. Along the way, she has no choice but to confront her prejudices against the Fae as she attempts to sort out the difference between the honest and the dishonest. Political conspiracies, demon realm escapades, and family secrets will all lead Grace to the answers she’s looking for… and some that she isn’t. – goodreads
Chasing Fae has made it to my 2020 favorite book list, and as soon as I gather all my feelings about it, there’s a chance that it could make it on my all time favorite books list! Magic, fighting, secrets, adventures, what more could you ask for in this book? Also, no love triangle to try to figure out? Heck yeah! Cady, please don’t add one. I really love Grace’s character. She is a really strong person, who is finding out who she is, while she is trying to figure out what happened to her brother. Don’t even get me started on Aiden, I seriously love him so much! Their relationship is precious, and Aiden might be my latest book crush, along with Maxon, Søren, and Cal.
It may just be me, but the last couple chapters reminded me of Red Queen somewhat. I’m not complaining since I am in love with that series, but let me know what you think. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I’m pretty sure I even screamed at one point towards the end, but it was valid. Please go and go read this book so we can talk!
