This little fairytale was so cute but I never did warm up to Chalcedony She shouldn't have taken Lizzy in the first place I liked Coal and would like to see him as a prince Can't wait to see what happens in book 2 Good job Constance

Human child he promised to protect unintentionally breaks a law in front of the fey eli. actual rating 25I did not like this book nearly as much as the preuel novella The preuel was very much urban fantasy and also focused on several black kids living in an apartment complex and their brush with the fairy world This follows off of that because it focuses on one of the kids who got taken to the fairy world when he was very young but most of the novel takes place there and it has much of a high fantasy vibe and focuses a lot on politics It was a radical change from the preuel and not necessarily one I enjoyed but the next book seems to go back to the human world and bring back a few characters from the preuel so I am going to give it a try despite not really caring for this

Summary Coal Everleaf #1

Te he will have to choose between betraying his best friend or saving the child’s lif. First of all many thanks to Constance and Diverse Book Tours for providing me a free e book in exchange for my honest review I enjoyed this diverse highurban fantasy which I can honestly say is like no other book I've ever read Why When was the last time you read a story about a friendship between a black fairy and a black human Granted this fairy Chalcedony can change her appearance at will but she chooses to be black like her human friend Coal Chalcedony is developing amorous feelings for her childhood friend Coal but she's strongly encouraged not to because fairies aren't supposed to like humans It would be unseemly for a fairy ueen to have a human consort Her indecision on this point not to mention her own pride causes a great deal of trouble in the storyFor reasons I'm not uite sure of Chalcedony snatches another human child on a whim much the way she snatched Coal when he was younger and brings the girl to the Fae world Chalcedony is coming of age and must assume the throne soon The pressure is on her to be rid of Coal For some reason she thinks a new human child can replace him It was a bit of a sticky plot point for me as a reader because I don't really get her thought process here Maybe she was irrationalWhen the child accidentally draws Chalcedony's blood there is a high price to pay Coal attempts to rescue the child from the harsh punishment reuired by Fae law putting his own future at riskThe story definitely has some uniue aspects to it I especially liked the idea of swords having their own consciousness and the concept of Legacy the Fae home tree with it's own awareness In the Fae world there's a strong high fantasy feel but in the human world it feels like urban fantasy The transition between the two is a bit jarring in places  I liked the title character Coal and I felt for him when Chalcedony's actions were so confusing can she be trusted or no I wished he was determined about his own destiny and opinionated about the crazy Fae running his life Chalcedony really seemed to run the show And the ending does leave you hanging like any good series would I hope the next book in the series lets Coal shine in his own right I give Coal two thumbs up for any lover of high fantasy
