Welcome to day Five of @CuriosityQuills Week! Fairy Keeper (World of Aluvia #1) by @AmyBearce #BookReview #Giveaway

Welcome to day Five! We have some amazing books to share with you today! Second up is a book about a girl who doesn't want to be a keeper!  But then she is tossed into a journey to find lost queens! Don't miss it! 
 
Forget cute fairies in pretty dresses. In the world of Aluvia, most fairies are more like irritable, moody insects. Almost everyone in the world of Aluvia views the fairy keeper mark as a gift, but not fourteen-year-old Sierra. She hates being a fairy keeper, but the birthmark is right there on the back of her neck. It shows everyone she was born with the natural ability to communicate, attract, and even control the tiny fairies whose nectar is amazingly powerful. Fairy nectar can heal people, but it is also a key ingredient in synthesizing Flight, an illegal elixir that produces dreaminess, apathy and hallucinations. She’s forced to care for a whole hive of the bee-like beasties by her Flight-dealing, dark alchemist father.

Then one day, Sierra discovers the fairies of her hatch are mysteriously dead. The fairy queen is missing. Her father’s Flight operation is halted, and he plans to make up for the lost income by trading her little sister to be an elixir runner for another dark alchemist, a dangerous thug. Desperate to protect her sister, Sierra convinces her father she can retrieve the lost queen and get his operation up and running.

The problem? Sierra’s queen wasn’t the only queen to disappear. They’re all gone, every single one, and getting them back will be deadly dangerous. 

Sierra journeys with her best friend and her worst enemy -- assigned by her father to dog her every step -- to find the missing queens. Along the way, they learn that more than just her sister’s life is at stake if they fail. There are secrets in the Skyclad Mountains where the last wild fairies were seen. The magic Sierra finds there has the power to transform their world, but only if she can first embrace her calling as a fairy keeper.




Amy is the author of the World of Aluvia series, an upper-middle grade fantasy series that bridges the gap between middle grade and young adult books.



This one gave me the feel of Fairies and the Mob. And I know how that sounds but when Sierra's dad is pretty much a drug runner and well your pretty much a slave I'm not sure how else to put it.  This book was high middle grade to lower teen and was just magical in the best sort of way!  Sierra is a fairy keeper, so its her job to take nectar from the fey which makes this drug called flight.  Her dad is the seller of the stuff and well this one was fairly interesting.  

It all centers around Sierra not wanting to be a keeper but she really has no choice. Then she is tossed into a journey to find lost fairy queens and this is where the book really gets going.  Its full of mystery, magic and danger and is one that fans of fantasy shouldn't miss!  

The world building was wonderful and I can't wait to dive into book two!
