Rosalie is kind of hippy pixie, all into Nature and being laid back and free spirited. The world of the pixies is beauitfully described and creative. Once she's captured by fairies as a pixie dust making slave, the pace of the book picks up.
I especially liked the last half of the book after Jack, Rosalie's jailer, is introduced. It goes without saying if you read any of my reviews that a budding romance is a key plot element for me. :)
Things I didn't really enjoy: I felt the book needed better editing. Some readers aren't bothered by this, but I caught several typos and mistakes. There were also a lot of repeated words, such as when dialogue tags were reused repeteadly (characters "huff" a lot). I can't help it. I just notice when words are reused in books.
I would say overall I liked the book, but didn't love it. It is a clean YA fantasy, without bad language, sexual content, or any type of drinking or drug use. However, the faeries who capture Rosalie are quite brutal in their treatment of her and the other pixies.
"Dust"is the beginnig of a series (Of Dust and Darkness), and ends with a setup for the next in the book. I hope in coming books, Rosalie will find a way to wreak a little havoc on her captors and free the other pixies. There's a lot more of her story left to tell!
"Dust" can be purchased on Amazon .
