The Fairy Wren by Ashley Capes

The Fairy Wren by Ashley Capes.jpgSummary:

From the moment a fairy wren drops his lost wedding ring at his feet, Paul realises there’s more magic to the world than he thought…

When Paul Fischer receives a strange phone call asking for help, from a woman who might be his estranged wife Rachel, he’s drawn into a mysterious search that threatens not only his struggling bookstore, but long-buried dreams too.

Unfortunately, the only help comes from a shady best friend, an Italian runaway and a strange blue fairy wren that seems to be trying to tell him something – yet the further he follows the clues it leaves the less sense the world seems to make. Is he on the verge of a magical, beautiful discovery or at the point of total disaster?

Review: 4 Stars

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

The Fairy Wren is a book unlike any that I’ve read before. This was a book that I tried to take my time reading so that I could savor it, but found myself at the end all too quickly. I certainly had NO idea where this book was going, but I was definitely not disappointed. This book is really well written, and I don’t understand why it hasn’t gotten more attention. It’s unlike everything else, and that is probably why. Does originality scare people away?

I found myself absolutely captivated with the story line, with all the unexpected twists and criminal behavior. The fairy wren itself also added another whole level of mystery and intrigue. This is one of those books I want to make everyone read. When I got to the end and found out that Ashley Capes is also a poet, I wasn’t surprised. The whole book is beautifully written, yet not overly descriptive.
