Review 5/5 Stars – DUST by Devon Ashley
4. The number of times my delicate wings have been broken and clamped behind my back.
68. The number inked upon my skin, marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen.
87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned.
88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me.
Healthy. Cheery. Vivacious. All traits Rosalie has before becoming enslaved by the faeries to make an endless supply of pixie dust. Now that Rosalie has been traumatized by slave labor, extreme desolate conditions and multiple deaths, this hardened pixie is anything but. When this rebellious teenager attempts an escape, she’s isolated in cramped quarters until she learns her place. Just as she begins to let go of all that hope, she finds an unlikely friend in Jack, the faerie assigned to guard her. Interspecies dating is forbidden in the fae world, so their growing attraction is unacceptable. And even if Jack can find a way to free her, they know the prison is the only place they can truly be together.
DUST by Devon Ashley was a fresh surprise! I thought going in that the story being about pixies and faeries and such that it would be a light, fun, bubbly sort of read. Boy was I wrong! DUST is a beautifully descriptive, dangerous and intense story about a pixie named Rosalie who finds herself in a traumatic situation where she can, and almost does, die at any moment. DUST is filled with beautiful imagery, unforgettable characters and a vivid look into the darker side of human (or fae!) nature. The main character, Rosalie, is a feisty, not-to-be-F’d-with fighter that you can’t help but love and root for from beginning to end. And then there’s Jack….Oh Jack, oh Jack, how I love you so! Let’s just say that Devon Ashley did everything right with DUST. I honestly can’t find a single thing wrong with this book and I think anyone interested in strong heroines, expertly crafted villains, hot ‘unlikely’ love interests and a perfectly paced love story to go with them, then DUST is definitely a book you’ll want to pick up. I’ll definitely be reading the other two books in this trilogy!
