Review & Giveaway: Dust by Devon Ashley
Dust by Devon Ashley
Published Date: September 2012
4. The number of times my delicate wings have been broken and clamped behind my back.
68. The number inked upon my skin, marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen.
87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned.
88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me.
Healthy. Cheery. Vivacious. All traits Rosalie has before becoming enslaved by the faeries to make an endless supply of pixie dust. Now that Rosalie has been traumatized by slave labor, extreme desolate conditions and multiple deaths, this hardened pixie is anything but. When this rebellious teenager attempts an escape, she’s isolated in cramped quarters until she learns her place. Just as she begins to let go of all that hope, she finds an unlikely friend in Jack, the faerie assigned to guard her. Interspecies dating is forbidden in the fae world, so their growing attraction is unacceptable. And even if Jack can find a way to free her, they know the prison is the only place they can truly be together.
My Review: I love pixies, and faires and fantasy! Through Rosalie, we find out that pixies and fairies don't mix, except for the pixies being taken to make pixie dust. But when she meets her knew guard, Jack, the lines between what they were taught are getting blury. Rosalie is one tough pixie. I love how she doesn't give in, and stays strong for the other pixies.
Devon has created a beautiful world, where you can see it in your mind. Those are the kinds of books I love. I cannot wait for the second one to come out. If this series is anything like her previous one, it'll be great!!
Devon is giving away awesome pixie packages!!!!
