Review coming soon- but have to say, I loved it! Can't wait to start the sequel Ballad: The Gathering of Faerie*****I have been meaning to read this series for a while after hearing good things about it. And I loved Shiver, so I had high hopes, and I'm happy to say this book did not disappoint! Lament tells the story of 16 year old Deirdre, or Dee for short. Dee is a harpist, who finds that she is a cloverhand, which is someone that sees fairies. The mysterious Luke suddenly appears in her life, and she falls for him, but is not entirely sure he can be trusted. Dee has a loyal and hilarious friend named James, who would like to take their friendship to the next level. Dee finds that her family has a history with seeing fairies, and she is learning to deal with this unexpected gift. There is action, romance and mystery in this story, and it held my attention throughout.I love Maggie Stiefvater's writing, and I thoroughly enjoyed this original take on fairies. Some of the recent books about fairies have been hit or miss with me but this one is a keeper. I was left wanting more James in this book, but happily the companion novel Ballad is told from his point of view.
