I don't normally read fantasy/science fiction (though I watch a lot of it), but Don't Feed the Fairies grabbed me straight away. Great start to the story, good characters and a roller-coaster of a ride. Don't expect something too serious. This is simple light good fun.
It's the story of an alien woman who finds herself stranded on earth after her plans to farm humans don't work out. You see, these aliens are not exactly vampires, but they suck the energy out of animals on their planet, and they have found that humans are very tasty. She meets a few humans on the way, and rescues a baby alien, who looks just like a cute little fairy.
The only thing that disappointed me in the book is that it ended too abruptly. All of a sudden, it was all wrapped up, a bit too swiftly for my taste. But I guess the author is planning plenty more stories around Cytolene and her motley crew, and I can imagine it quite well making the transition to the big or small screen.
And it's great value too. You can buy the Kindle edition for $3.51 on www.amazon.com. (For some strange reason, Irish customers still can't buy Kindle books from the .co.uk site? I don't get that.)
