The Steward Review

Synopsis from

Maggie O’Shea expected the worst when her family relocated from the lively beaches of Boca Raton to the secluded forests of the Ozark Mountains. What she didn’t expect was a new beginning – one full of Fae, magical powers, dangerous physical and mental trials, and two surprisingly gorgeous young men. These aren’t the fairies you’re familiar with, but dangerous superpowers embroiled in an enduring struggle among themselves over the fate of all humanity. Some want to protect us, and others would love nothing more than to see us, and especially fifteen-year-old Maggie, dead and buried. Now, torn between her new duties as Steward of the most sacred Fae land and her burgeoning love for Gavin, a powerful Fae, Maggie must fight to protect her family, her friends, herself, and the fate of the entire world.

Join Maggie as she learns that fairy lore is not as far from the truth as she had believed, but neither is it anything like the tales in books or movies. As she navigates the treacherous schemes of the magical Fae, Maggie must become a quick study if she hopes to protect the lives of many, and possibly all, people from the insidious plot the Unseelie Fae have planned for centuries.

The Steward is the first book in the four part series: the Weald Fae Journals by Christopher Shields.

My thoughts:


The author brings his readers to the world that he created through his vivid imagery.  Through his great description of the places and sounds, the reader can imagine themselves being in the Weald.  This is a must read for those who enjoy the Fae.  Good characters, good story line.  The only downside is that there were too many flashbacks. 

I am giving this book a rating of.....

Rating: 4/5
