Book Review – 30 Days Without Wings by Tabatha Shipley
First published, 2018
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
30 Days Without Wings is a gorgeous coming-of-age, fantasy story, and I loved it. Elise is a relatable young faerie, about to choose her life-path at a meeting with the Faerie Council. With no family and no solid plan for her future, she asks for a leave of absence – thirty days to live with another colony. However, Elise decides to live as a human being to see if the young people she sees at the local school really do have the sort of life she wants.
A sweet story, a little bit reminiscent of The Little Mermaid. Elise is a lovely character and I really enjoyed the story. The interior monologue is excellent. I love the way Elise thinks. And even though there was a shift in the POV, which I know other reviewers have noticed, I actually found that it kept me on my toes.
Excellent stuff. Would recommend.
