The Treachery of Beautiful Things

The Treachery of Beautiful Things - Ruth Frances Long Oh my goodness, I don’t think I know the exact words to say. I don’t think I can easily explain how much I freakin love this book. (Which is how I am with all books that take my breath away.)

I have been wary of books about fairies since the last book I read about faeries. (It didn’t turn out very well.) But I was willing to give this a chance, because it wasn’t focused solely on fairies. The cover was beautiful, but like the title says, beautiful things can be deceiving.
This cover was no deception to how awesome the book is.

I was constantly pulled into the story; the descriptions of the Realm are hauntingly beautiful. Ah, it reminds me of Labyrinth and Pan’s Labyrinth (the movies), the way everything is a riddle and full of illusions. Which is how all fairytales are, I guess.

Jack and Jenny are by far some of the sweetest and most heart breaking characters I have ever read about! I seriously never wanted this story to end.
And the ending is perfect! ;)
