Feast: Harvest of Dreams

by Merrie Destefano

HarperCollins | June 28, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Feast: Harvest of Dreams is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.

“Merrie Destefano storms the world of urban fantasy…breathing new life into the vast genre of the undead.”
—Tosca Lee, author of Havah and Demon: A Memoir

“Merrie Destefano has made a fine start on a promising career.”
—James Gunn, science fiction Grand Master

With her brilliant debut novel, Afterlife, author Merrie Destefano earned herself a place of honor at the banquet table alongside today’s top authors of sf and urban fantasy. With Feast, she serves up another heaping helping of thrills, shivers, wonder, and glorious invention while spicing up the recipe with dark romance in the bestselling vein of C.L Wilson, Marjorie M. Liu, and other paranormal superstars. A spellbinding fantasy of supernatural intrigue and forbidden love, Feast blends vampire and fairy lore, with the resulting dish offering a sumptuous new take on both, as a troubled storyteller returns home to the mysterious autumn woods just prior to Halloween, to find her life and her soul captivated by a cursed immortal, the Lord of the Hunt.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A real disappointment Although I really dislike writing negative reviews, it would be unfair were I to give this a positive rating as in this case I hope to save some readers both eyestrain and $$$. As I had very much enjoyed reading this author's first work "Afterlife: The Resurrection Chronicles" I was looking forward to reading her second offering. I regret to say that this one is a totally monotonous bomb. It was just page after page after page of the same idea stated over and over and over again. Try as I might, I was unable to get through the whole book. I understand the premise and the loosely-veiled comparison to the Wild Hunt of Celtic lore, but the author's rendition just falls flat. At the point that I decided to give up reading the book I tried an experiment. At random I flipped 20-30 pages ahead, read several pages and then flipped to the next 20-30 until I reached the end of the book. Each time I stopped to read I found that it was basically a recap of what I had just read. In summary, there was no progression to the story, little character development and in short, just plain boring.
