Ok, here's an actual review..

Book: War for the Oaks
Authour: Emma Bull
Status: In Print

I wanted to start with this one, because of the less common decent books I've read on the fey, this one is still in print. Sorry it took me so long to get around to it though.

Quick story bit: This book is the story of a war between the Seelie and Unseelie courts, and the mortals they choose to help them. It includes the band that one of those mortals is in, as well. It is a predominantly Seelie story, but it does not make them completely sweetness and light like so many modern books do. Instead, we see the contepmt that many fey, seelie or unseelie, are prone to show towards mortals. Beyond that, this book had a feel to it that made it one I read right through, beginnig to end, unlike some similar things, which are largely disappointing.

Well, for anyone who's read it, let's babble about it in the comments. And I hope that some of you will write up recommendations for other things. Just cut tag them if they're spoilerish.
