Come join Devin and the villagers, the soldiers, and Bjornmen in this riveting tale of the Fae, most commonly known over the years as fairies. Devin and his mother travel through the woods, after escaping an abusive father and husband, hitching a ride on a wagon train that was soon attacked by bandits, leaving them deserted and on their own. This is not an ordinary adventure of survival, though. What happens to Devin and his mother will forever change their lives, even if they don't find out why until years later. Devin and the other villagers lived a peaceful, normal village life until one day confusion and madness erupted. Refugees from other villages began seeking safety from the Bjornmen who invaded the land, burnt their homes, and not just raided them of their goods this time. Soldiers began filling the little village and surrounding area to help protect them from an attack by the Bjornmen. Little did the village people, soldiers, and Bjornmen know they would not only be fighting each other, but a common enemy once thought to be a child's tale. Do you believe in fairytales or Tales of the Fae?

Fae – The Wild Hunt by Graham Austin-King is book one of The Riven Wyrde Saga, which introduces readers to the concepts of the origin of fairy tales, village life, soldiering, war, ship masters, and oarsmen. The author writes a transitional type of story plot. This style of writing is very intriguing as it keeps the reader’s mind focused on how each transition will tie into the next one and mesh with the main story plot of the book. The descriptive text, mysterious feel of the story, and the characters within each chapter are all created with such skill and creativity, making the book a fascinating read for all ages. Fae -The Wild Hunt is not a child's happy ending fairytale, but rather a "ghost" story of sorts, in the aspect that it is scary. If you have ever wondered where the fairy tales and kids’ sayings and games originated from, you will not be disappointed when reading Graham Austin-King's explanation.
