Book Summary

(From Goodreads)

Jesse James is a normal eighteen-year-old, even if her parents are the best faerie bounty hunters in New York. Jesse’s only concern is how to pay for college, but that changes the night her parents disappear.

Equipped with her parents’ weapons and her own smarts, Jesse enters the dangerous world of bounty hunting in search of her mother and father. In her quest, she encounters all manner of Fae, but the scariest is Lukas, the mysterious, imposing faerie who offers to help her find her parents.

But there are powerful forces at work, and Jesse is about to become a player in a dangerous game that could decide the fate of everyone she loves. In this world of magic and deception, it’s hard to tell her allies from her enemies in the race to find her parents before their time runs out.

My Thoughts

Karen’s writing style was not too bad and easy to read. However, she gives too many details and explanations in many places. I kept skipping paragraphs of info. And some stuff didn’t make sense, like how Jesse and Violet got arrested when they were only knocking on someone’s door. It doesn’t make any sense. I was committed to the story very quickly because it starts off with Jesse protecting someone that then steals from her. I found the story riveting from the get-go.

I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. It was full of adventure, suspense, a hint of romance, and brooding fairies… I mean, brilliant! The story kept me guessing and I really struggled to put the book down which meant that I inevitably read it in a day. The world that Karen created was interesting and written so well that I felt like I was there and part of the action.

Jesse was an awesome character and I loved that she was strong but still unsure and a little vulnerable. I enjoyed following her on her journey through the pages of Pawn while she tried to save her parents. The other characters really helped the story to exude all different emotions. I enjoyed all their different personalities. One thing I need to warn the reader about is that God’s Name is used a bit.

Pawn is book one in a series and I have put the other two books on my TBR list. I can’t wait to read them! And then I will share my thoughts with you about them too. I also love the covers! I wish I could get the paperbacks to add to my shelf collection. I would recommend Pawn to anyone that likes to read books about fairies, etc. If you enjoy Cassandra Clare’s books, then you should enjoy this as well. It’s not as good as Cassandra’s books but they are within the same realm.
