Blurb- When sixteen-year-old Lee Capren is spirited away to Faerie, she is forced to serve capricious faeries as a prized portrait artist… and live as their prisoner.
A chance encounter with the charming Nasser grants Lee a chance for freedom—but what felt like mere days in Faerie spanned years in the human world, and Lee no longer has a home to return to.
Nasser is a Seer—a human with magical powers—and Lee is quickly plunged into his world: a sprawling city teeming with magic and mystery, where supernatural creatures walk hidden among humans. With the help of a rag-tag group of teenage Seers, Lee must master her newfound magical talent and outwit a cunning faerie determined to destroy her
Review- After an enjoyable break from reviewing the fantasy/paranormal genre, I jumped into Flicker. I was excited to get back into my favourite genre but I feel a little let down with this one. It wasn't the fast paced, intense read I thought it would be. Let me explain why...
Flicker took me forever and a day to read. It wasn't one of those books that I couldn't put down. So let me start off with the storyline. The whole concept of the story I liked. I liked the idea behind it and I liked the scenes in the book, I just feel like they could have been delivered a little better. I found myself bored throughout the majority of the book but kept reading because I wanted to know the outcome. The action scenes in Flicker were enjoyable. Magical battles mixed with physical battles are always an interesting mix. Especially the last battle between Lee and Byrony, but you have to wait until the last few chapters for that.
The characters I loved. Lee, Nasser, Filo, Jason, Angela, each had their own unique characteristics and persona's which was great. They were all intriguing with their own stories to tell which I will give kudos to Kaye for. It's not every day you find a book that you fall in love with the characters and not the storyline as well.
I don't want to seem like I am bashing on Flicker as it may be for some people. If you're looking for an easy breezy read and a steady stream of a story than this is for you. I guarantee if anything you will love the characters. I would mainly aim this towards the YA audience.
