I also found the book to be really touching, what a dilemma these characters face, no matter what happens if Cam stays or goes someone is going to be losing. Balog did a fantastic job in getting us there and making us the readers feel good in the end. Yet her love for him seems so superficial.

This is a horrible book. But now the fairies need him back because his brother was killed and Cam is the next in line for the crown. Their situations and backgrounds are almost necessarily interesting.

She helps people by being able to foresee the future, but as any gift it has its limits and sometimes causes people some pain, herself included. It was a pointless read The details around the edges could have made it interesting, but they weren’t followed up on most of the fairy stuffor were just there for “color” and not really dealt with on an on-going basis psychic stuff, Italian c This fairry unfortunately terrible.

It’s a hard choice, and she has to remember that as much as she loves Cam, there’s no way to get around the fact that after October 15th their 16th birthdayhe’ll be transported to Fairy, and she’ll never see him again, while good old Pip will be staying here.


Fairy Tale Summary & Study Guide

Pip is the reason this book received a 2. Trivia About Fairy Tale. I hated this book. Other times, her voice just seems contrived.

Naturally, it turns out he’s king of the faeries and has to go live with them when he turns sixteen but he tries to stay for Morgan, who ends up falling for Pip, who was sent to make sure Cam goes to the faerie world. ON to the next book!

I found Morgan to be very unlikeable. Did it have it’s flaw I’ll be honest– when I first saw the cover for this book earlier this year, I fell in love with it– or lust, since the original title which was soon changed, why, I have no clue! Morgan and Cam have been together basically their whole lives.

FAIRY TALE by Cyn Balog | Kirkus Reviews

Jun 27 18 13 Jun 30, She is just a bi-polar mess!! And this is a bright spot, a saving grace in an otherwise boring and stylistically faidy novel. This book cyh unbearable. I am not entirely saying that Fairy Tale was completely the same as Wondrous Strange. When he was an infant the Fairies swapped him for a human child, and Cam, as well as his family and acquaintances, has believed he is a mortal.

And if fairy magic did not work on Morgan, how come Pip was starting to look hot to her? Just a charming book about teen romance with a touch of magic. Having never fit into Otherworld, in fact he lived a lonely existence of abuse and alienation Pip is inexplicably ready to sacrifice his happiness for Morgan’s-for her true love.


First, she’s bored, sardonic, and better than any one she’s around. So many YA novels, particularly for female readers, fixate on the theme of teenage love and convey the idea that one’s sixteen-year-old love is somehow the most pure, deep love one will ever attain.

A little too perfect, but it all comes tumbling down when her boyfriend discovers that he’s actually a fairy and at their upcoming sweet sixteen birthday party he’s supposed to go back and be king in fairy world. To ask other balgo questions about Fairy Taleplease sign up. The whole plot is ridiculous and just bleh! Pip offers to help Morgan save Cam by returning to Otherworld in Cam’s place, but Morgan panics when she envisions Pip being in New Jersey after he should be in Otherworld.
