2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Songbird Thief by Skye Allen (351-08-30-2016)

1) Believable and relatable characters in a landscape that skillfully blends San Francisco with a wonderful fantasy world makes for a very entertaining story.

2) I am not really a fan of this type of story but I found this one to be. An enjoyable read. I really loved Lee and the book offered many twists and turns. I hadn't read the other book in this series but I didn't need to. This one could have been a stand alone.

3) A very interesting, new and different fantasy. I have liked it a lot! The characters are well developed and the plot offer enough intrigue to keep anyone attention, but my favorite part was the setting, this mash up of a very 21° century city and a fairytale world.

4) The author gives us a delightful, imaginative, heartfelt tale wrapped in excellent storytelling. An excellent read.

An Oaktown Fey Book

Where's the harm in a little petty theft now and then? Fifteen-year-old Lee is about to find out. Lee has a gift--the ability to use her songs to enchant prospective victims, making them easy to rob--but it isn't without a price. The source of this mysterious ability is revealed when Lee comes to San Francisco, fleeing her stepfather's abuse: she is half fey. This knowledge puts a strain on Lee's relationship with her friend and secret crush, Sonja, since Sonja thinks entanglements with the fey only lead to trouble. As her adventure takes her deeper into the intrigues of the Faerie Realm, Lee discovers her power has the potential for more than fun and profit. Some would use it for evil, and only Lee can decide if there's good to be found in her songs.
