Lament: by Maggie Stiefvater.. I had picked this book up at a used book store as a second thought. The cover of the book wasn't very appealing, but I like books about faeries and decided to give this a try. It was late at night and I couldn't sleep, so I cracked this book open and began to read. I was instantly taken in by this book. The night kept creeping in, and I kept reading. By three thirty in the morning I closed the book and was done. And it was the first time in a long while, that I didn't want a story to end. I wanted this author to keep writing about the main characters, Deirdre and her mysterious love, Luke. I wanted to know where their story would end up. I wasn't nearly satisfied with the ending. Although it was fabulous and I understood why it ended the way it had..I just wanted more!
The basis of this book? Deirdre is a musical prodigy and while practicing for a concert, she meets a strange and handsome boy named Luke. He introduces her to a strange world that has always been around her, but that she has been unaware of until now. He is also a faerie assassin and he has a secret. Will this secret keep Deirdre from the boy she has grown to love? Or bring them together?
I loved this book. And would recommend it to anyone who liked Wondrous Strange or the Iron King. Enjoy.
(From my understanding, there is a second book, but the author chose a secondary character as the main character in that book. I can't say if I'm happy about that or not. We shall see, we shall see.)
