The magical touch is delightful!
The Fairy Wren - Ashley Capes

This is a delightful tale of a bookstore owner and a magical little fairy wren that comes into his life. While I cringed at times at some of the idiotic decisions this young man makes almost on a daily basis, I had to like the guy and want everything to turn out for the best. He keeps getting into deeper and deeper hot water at every turn. The pages just flew along and I couldn't stop reading.


The story is imaginative and original. There's a scene in the book that I can't say too much about without giving away plot but it was such a beautiful and heart wrenching scene. The book is written in a very modern tone but has poetic touches that make it quite special.


I'll be looking into other works by this author, especially his ghost story as I believe he'd write a very good one!


I won this book in a BookLikes giveaway.

Beautifully written
The Fairy Wren - Ashley Capes

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

The Fairy Wren is a book unlike any that I've read before. This was a book that I tried to take my time reading so that I could savor it, but found myself at the end all too quickly. I certainly had NO idea where this book was going, but I was definitely not disappointed. This book is really well written, and I don't understand why it hasn't gotten more attention. It's unlike everything else, and that is probably why. Does originality scare people away?

I found myself absolutely captivated with the story line, with all the unexpected twists and criminal behavior. The fairy wren itself also added another whole level of mystery and intrigue. This is one of those books I want to make everyone read. When I got to the end and found out that Ashley Capes is also a poet, I wasn't surprised. The whole book is beautifully written, yet not overly descriptive.
