Review!! Winter By Sarah Remy

July 9, 2015

My Review:
4.5 stars!
So this was a really fun read. Each time I get to read a fantasy genre I am reminded how much I have come to love these type of books, and Winter did not disappoint! Winter is a teenager living beneath the city, not because he is a runaway, but because he is exiled there after accidentally unleashing this crazy demon monster's from the fairy world through a portal. Winter is tasked with protecting the city from the demon monster's. On top of it he was punished by his Mother, who like many of the Sidhe were banished to Manhattan after losing favor with the fairy queen on the other side. Ok-really I probably do no justice in explaining this all. But that's, that. 

Winter along with his mentor Gabby-a talking mouse, also one of the Sidhe banished to Manhattan and along with 2 human kids take on the strange and unusual crimes that often come with having Sidhe in the wrong world. That's how they come stumbling across the Changeling, and this is where the story really begins! 

What a fun and twisted adventure this book will take you on, the story is so well woven that you almost believe that they all may just a scary world where things are not always as they seem and monsters may appear out of portals that is. I simply loved this story and will look for more from this author as my expectations for a great fantasy book where more then met with this one. 

About the Book:

Winter’s not your ordinary teenager. 

While trying to rescue his Sidhe family from exile, he mistakenly unleashes the monstrous Dread Host upon humankind.

Winter’s mother wants nothing more than to find a way to break the curse keeping the Sidhe imprisoned on Manhattan. New York City is driving Winter’s father slowly mad. Winter’s sister wears Chanel and longs for a Fairy Court she’s never seen. And Winter’s mentor is a talking mouse.

Winter wants to save the world. 

When he discovers an unlikely changeling lost in the subway, Winter realizes he’s been given a chance to finally banish the Host, and maybe even save his family. But the changeling isn’t quite what she seems, and Winter’s already unstable world begins to spiral out of control.
