Well its a horror / fantasy book. Its not an epic style book as it focues on one family in modern day rural East coast America. I really enjoyed the book and found it quite cripping and exciting. Ray does a good job of adding in lots of magicial elements.

Hey, take it easy.   Even if you're a feist fan, not having read *gasp* a single one of his books is not a crime. I only just finished the Serpentwar and still haven't read any of the Empire. And I still can't get my hands on Flight of the Nighthawks, or the Magician comic book for that matter. It's not like you'd get clubbed to death!
In any case, Honest John's is more Midkemia centred anyway, and since Fairy Tale isn't set in Midkemia and thus doesn't get discussed much, it's not that big a deal. (Not like having to watch out for spoilers or anything)

Yeah I would say Faerie Tale was worth a read

Good story, easier to read than quiet a few King books. I'm torn between wanting Ray to write more like that and him finishing the Midkemia books.

*ducks and runs* (but its true!)

I had a copy of this book for years, it was not until I met Camd in Brisbane last year that he gave me a copy which I could keep. I finally read Faerie Tale and really enjoyed the book. Thanks Cam

I read Faerie Tale after my first go at the Riftwar Saga.  I think it is a great story.  I remember actually being scared for the characters.

I didn't read Fairy Tale either. I'm still contemplating wether to buy/request it for my birthday, or just borrow it once as I actually only tend to buy fantasy books as free time reading material.
