First Line: "Slightly drunk on the darkest night of the year, Cara was halfway down Conyngham road before she noticed the lights in the Phoenix Park."
Summary: A group of short stories relating to one event. Each story focuses on a different character's involvement and point of view. A human girl is lured to a faery festival hosted by the Irish Fae. To survive, she must avoid the attention of two warring Queens whilst risky attempts are made to break a fragile peace treaty.

Thoughts: One Night with the Fae is a short story told from multiple perspectives about a girl who gets lured into the land of the fae and in particular one of their parties and how she must escape before something sinister happens.
I enjoyed reading One Night with the Fae. It was a short, sharp story and while there wasn’t much character development you didn’t really need it to enjoy the story.
I’m all for reading about fae creatures and One Night with the Fae was a really fun and interesting look into their world. It’s definitely something that a lover of fae creatures would enjoy.
I thought the story line was really interesting and the fact that it changed perspectives all the time added extra insight into what was going on and it was just a really unique way to show the events of the story unravelling. I’m usually a bit apprehensive about reading books in multiple perspectives because they can often get confusing but this one did it very very well.
That being said, One Night With the Fae was extremely well written and I will definitely be reading more from Claire Farrell.
