Spellweaver: Olive Kennedy

(Fairy World MD Book 2)

Written by Tamara Grantham

Genre(s): Fantasy

Olive's to-do list: Feed the cat. Pay the rent. Save Faythander. Again.

After Olive's last trip through Faythander, she wants nothing more than a nice vacation. But there's never time for relaxation when goblin treachery is afoot. When Geth, a goblin Spellweaver, destroys the Everblossom—a tree containing Faythander's pure magic—the fairy-world utopia begins to die. The bloom of the Everblossom is all that remains of pure magic. Now Olive must travel through Earth and Faythander to find a place where it will flourish.

As a psychiatrist, her skills are top notch. However, her abilities to handle patients with abnormal mental behaviors will be put to the test when she confronts Geth. Nothing has prepared her for what he reveals to her about goblins and elves. As Olive's quest takes her from her home in Houston through the most dangerous places in Faythander, she learns that history is a muddled subject, especially when elves are involved.

Her only comfort comes from Kull, her Viking warrior sidekick—who somehow negates her bad fortune. Yet how long can their relationship last when his past is brought to light? Olive will be tested beyond anything she has endured so far, as the secrets of Faythander's sordid and bloody past are exposed—one that could irrevocably alter the future and destroy the lives of everyone she loves.

Moonwalker's Review

A fast paced fantasy tale...

Once again Olive must take a journey fraught with danger to protect someone she loved. This time her chance of survival was even less than in the first book in the series, Dreamthief . With her viking friend Kull at her side, she returns to Earth to find the one blossom that would return all magic to Faythander after it had been all but destroyed. In the balance is the lives of loved ones who helped to raise her as a child. Even if she finds the blossom, will she find it in time? This is a fast paced fantasy tale that kept me engaged just through the urgency of Olive's plight. Even though she was the heroine, it was by no means a given that she would survive, or even if she did, would the people she loved the most survive? If she lost them, her reason for living would be gone. I liked the second book in the series as much as the first one. I'm sure I'll like the third one in the series, Bloodthorn. I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves the fantasy genre.
