Dust By Devon Ashley

Dust (Of Dust and Darkness, #1) by Devon Ashley (Goodreads Author) 4. The number of times my delicate wings have been broken and clamped behind my back. 68. The number inked upon my skin, marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen. 87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned. 88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me. Healthy. Cheery. Vivacious. All traits Rosalie has before becoming enslaved by the faeries to make an endless supply of pixie dust. Now that Rosalie has been traumatized by slave labor, extreme desolate conditions and multiple deaths, this hardened pixie is anything but. When this rebellious teenager attempts an escape, she’s isolated in cramped quarters until she learns her place. Just as she begins to let go of all that hope, she finds an unlikely friend in Jack, the faerie assigned to guard her. Interspecies dating is forbidden in the fae world, so their growing attraction is unacceptable. And even if Jack can find a way to free her, they know the prison is the only place they can truly be together.

Thank you Devon for giving me the opportunity to read and review Dust! It was an awesome book. Hearing that this book was about pixies I didnt know what to expect, wondering if it was going to be more like the pixie's in the need series or the fae in one of the many fae books out there. I was pleasantly surprised that it was kind of dark to be a pixie story. It starts off with Rosalie in her homemade tree house in the Hollow. I love the way Devon was with her imagery throughout the book. When Rosalie gets taken and stuck in the hole its awful, Just the way Devon paints the picture for our imagination makes me cringe and feel sorry for poor Rosalie. I am happy to see that the pixies atleast in some aspects still try to stick it to the man(well faeries in this case) by not caring how pure the mushroom particles are to make the pixie dust. Rosalie was a great MC, She had spunk even though she was being abused and starved she still tried to keep faith with the other pixies to escape. When she gets caught and stuck back in the hole I didnt know what to expect to happen. I am glad Jack came along even though he was kind of immature in the beginning he kind of grew on me towards the end. I cannot wait for the second book to be released so I can devour it just like I did with Dust. Readers who enjoy stories with strong willed MC's will enjoy Dust.

  1. I love that the charters evolve as they go along. It makes things more real.

  2. I really look forward to reading this book. I love most books with faeries, and don't think this will be any different, meaning I should love it.
    Great giveaway. I been sharing all over, not just for entries, but to help out.
    I wish it didn't have the exact same cover as Night Marchers (think she changed hers now, a little, hers has been out, not sure how the same model was used in the same way, but is a bummer)
