Uncaged Review – Faerie Magic by Anna Applegate

Faerie Magic

Fantasy

Coraline Fray’s escape from foster care is about to turn into a fight for her life.

After Cora’s utter clumsiness lands her in a strange world, she’s immediately hauled off to jail by a Fae guard. Now the freedom that had been so close is a distant memory….because humans who learn of Faerie can never go back.

Imprisoned as an energy source for the Unseelie Kingdom, Cora now serves the heir to the throne: Noah Driscoll. And although Prince Noah disagrees with the practice of imprisoning humans for energy-feeding purposes, that’s a secret the future Unseelie King needs kept quiet.

Which means even if he’s against it, he needs Cora to pretend he’s feeding, and she needs to keep up the ruse, too. Because if Noah isn’t feeding on her, she’ll be assigned to another Fae who will.

And yet, somehow she’s found herself loyal to these monsters the minute they’re threatened, and starting to fall for the Prince of the Unseelie himself… Two mistakes that are about to cost her what little she has left.


Uncaged Review: Cora is a foster kid, almost
ready to age out of the system and get away from
bad foster homes, when she falls into a lake and
wakes up in the land of Faerie. Not knowing who
she is or anything about this world, she is taken
by the guard and delivered to the palace as a
feeder/servant.

As Cora learns her new place, and gets to know
other servants and the Royal Unseelie family, she
learns more about the world she’s found herself
in, especially the Prince, Noah, whom she’s been
assigned to.

This is a nice start to a new series, and Cora is a
strong woman, who learns that her own self worth
is enough with courage and tenacity. Her friend
Nicole is a trip. My one gripe is the romance
between Cora and Noah seems very slow and
one-sided, which I suppose will continue to grow
in the next books. Good series start. Reviewed by
