Dust (A Review of Devon Ashley's Faerie Novel)

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. it is! 

Rosalie is a pixie. She spends her days lounging in the soft green grass of her hollow, leisurely taking one day at a time: unconcerned, happy and free-spiritied. Too bad for her, she gets captured by Spriggans and Faeries who enslave her kind and force them into strenuous labor. After days, weeks, and months of abuse, Rosalie begins to wonder if she can ever escape. 
Or if she'll even survive. 

This was a fairly short read. The pages went by quickly. I love faery-lore, so this was an enjoyable story for me. Rosalie was a pretty spunky character, which I liked, and the setting was very believable - even though you know that it's is faery-land, you believe it anyway. A good sign. The only thing I would say that I didn't like (and this is just my personal preference), is that I felt like there was a build-up to the "day the faeries will regret taking me." I felt like there could have been a "sweet revenge" scene, so to speak, but that's just how I felt about it. Because I can't stand it when the protagonists don't get their comeuppance!

A sweet, adventurous read that puts the storyworld in an entirely new perspective: that of a 6-inch-tall faery.
