The faeries of the Oak are dying, and it’s up to a lone faery named Linden to find a way to restore their magic. Linden travels bravely into dangerous new territory, where she enlists the help of an unlikely friend—a human named Timothy. Soon they discover something much worse than the Oakenfolk’s loss of magic: a potent evil that threatens the fate of all faeries. In a fevered, desperate chase across the country, Timothy and Linden risk their lives to seek an ancient power before it’s too late to save everyone they love.
R. J. Anderson has artfully crafted a world of stunning magic, thrilling adventure, and delicate beauty, where a girl far from home must defeat the pervasive evil befalling her beloved faery realm.
I really enjoyed Spell Hunter, but I absolutely loved Wayfarer. Wayfarer just drew you in. It wasn’t until about a third of the way into the book that I become completely hooked and read straight through. I carried it with me everywhere, hoping I could sneak in some more reading.
I simply loved all the characters in Wayfarer. I loved hearing from some of the characters from Spell Hunter, as well as meeting many new ones. My favorite new character of the book was Rob. You never could quite figure him out, and I just loved him.
The plot was another thing that just had me swooning. I absolutely love fairies, and RJ Anderson’s way of telling fairy tales just has me in awe. I loved the plot line she had with Wayfarer.
I absolutely loved this book! It has a stunning cover and its pages are filled with wonderful characters, great plot, and stellar writing. Here’s to desperately hoping there is the book 3.
