I was beginning to fear that the major US review journals were going to overlook Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter entirely, but then Booklist came through in a big way. The full review is subscription-only, but most of it is summary anyway, so I'll just share the Good Stuff:

... First-time novelist Anderson has created a vivid, dysfunctional world ... this is a highly readable, sophisticated tale of romance and self-sacrifice, and readers will hope for more from this talented new author.

Not a starred review, but it might as well be! I am much relieved. Thank you, Booklist!

Ooh, lovely. :) I understand these review journals are very hard indeed to impress, so extra-good on you for getting that 'will hope for more'.

Having trouble finding it in your area? I know Borders and B&N have decided not to carry the book (so far anyway), but you should be able to find it through Indiebound (http://www.indiebound.org/book/9780061554742), or order it online...

And thanks! :D

Woohoo! And what a lovely [mini-]review it is. You can see the brief Booklist review when you do a search on our library's online catalog so this is really great.

Congratulations! And with words like "dysfunctional" makes me dying to pick it up.
