Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception (Paperback) by Maggie Stiefvater

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Sixteen-year-old Deirdre Monaghan, a gifted harpist who regularly plays for
weddings and other events, has the kind of stage fright that makes her
physically ill before a performance, which is an inauspicious way to start a
romance; but while vomiting before a competition she meets a gorgeous boy who
comes into the restroom to hold her hair. He is Luke Dillon, a flautist who
proceeds to accompany her in a truly stellar performance. As four-leaf clovers
start appearing everywhere, Deirdre develops telekinetic powers and encounters
strange, unworldly people who seem to bear her ill will. Her best friend, James,
also a talented musician; her beloved grandmother; and her mother all are in
danger, as Deirdre is targeted by the queen of Faerie. Deirdre eventually
discovers that she is a cloverhand, a person who can see the denizens of
faerie, and Luke, not the only immortal who has her in his sights, is a gallowglass, an assassin
assigned by the queen of Faerie to kill Deirdre but who falls in love with her

This book was a page made you wonder what is up with this Luke Dillion guy the whole way through. He came off kind of weird, but interesting, you just wanted to know more about him. The ending kinda leaves you open, you almost have to read the next book in the series (Ballad -comes out in October 2009) to find out what happens between Deirdre and the brooding Luke.

Reveiw: Good Read, if you like twilight this one will capture your attention :)
