The Seer's 7 Deadly Fairy Tales: A Compendium by Elizabeth Marx

The Seer's 7 Deadly Fairy Tales: 
A Compendium
by Elizabeth Marx

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Publication Date: March 12, 2012
Publisher: Elizabeth Marx
Genre: Paranormal
Number of Pages: 77
Available from: Amazon


Okay, let’s start out by saying this book is a compendium, not a novel. I had no idea what a compendium was until my good friend Merriam Webster informed me. Compendium: 1) a brief summary of a larger work or of a field of knowledge; 2) A collection or compilation.

This is all the ExtraOrdinary knowledge I’ve collected and written down in the little black book Ilithyia gave me as a death-day present. The same night she gave me the spiel about the important purpose I’d serve as The Seer. I have more questions about the Order than I have answers for, but I’ve decided to serve my higher purpose by constructing this encyclopedia for the Ordinary world.

The Seer’s 7 Deadly Fairy Tales also includes a truthful account of what happened to me, and a peek into what transpired while Locke and I were sent away to Blessingston. It’s full of definitions, cool illustrations, and the first of seven fairy tales that will be told over the course of the series. If you’re dying to know what goes on behind the veil of secrecy Salem is shrouded in, feel free to read this compendium.

But beware, the Order has one rule about recording ExtraOrdinary events--it’s strictly forbidden. So just to be on the safe side, you might want to destroy this after reading it.

But don’t worry about me getting in trouble, I’m already dead!

The Seer's 7 Deadly Fairy Tales: A CompendiumMy Review:
The Seer's 7 Deadly Fairy Tales: A Compendium by Elizabeth Marx 

Talk about a fantastic "hook" to prime interest in the full novel! A high school girl is killed in an accident. Her boyfriend lives and is determined to discover why she died, but not through normal channels, but a secret world to which he belongs. Unknown to Locke, she has become a Seer, able to see the world she can no longer be a part of. And there's the hook, what happens?

The following pages are filled with descriptions, definitions and information on the paranormal, mythological world, and I have to say, it was fascinating for me! Nothing like having a reference book for my paranormal reading, complete with illustrations! The Seer's 7 Deadly Fairy Tales: A Compendium
by Elizabeth Marx is well worth the read.
