Book Review: Champion of the Fey (The Sidhe)


In the second installment of Champion of the Sidhe series, Lugh is on the trail of a fey artifact that can possibly save the doomed fey race. It won't be easy, of course.

 The pretty fey woman Lugh meets in the marketplace in Bristol seems almost too good to be true. She only wants to help him in his quest to save the fey race and rebuild the fey lands  - the Mounds. It doesn't take Lugh long to realize that appearances can be deceiving, even among fey.


I tend to prefer the stories in The Sidhe series that involve Lugh and Jhaer. S.A. Archer's  Champion of the Fey was no exception.

Lugh was the Sidhe's golden boy; seemingly a warrior for good and a defender against evil. In this story Lugh is still fighting to find a way to save the fey but it's refreshing to see that even the fey's champion can slip up and make mistakes. I supposed you could say it makes him "more human" but Lugh was never human to begin with so it makes him seem more vulnerable.

Based on what we've seen in this book and in End of the World, Lugh's weakness seems to be fact that he is so determined to do the right thing. However, I'm really glad that we're starting to see another side to him. I can't wait to see what Archer has planned for Lugh in the next book.

Pick these up and give them a read, you won't be sorry that you did.

Rating: 5/5

Look for Champion of the Fey and Defender of Magic, book three in the Champion of the Sidhe series from Amazon or wherever eBooks are sold. Find out the suggested reading order, on The Sidhe's website.
