With October just days away, there's nothing better to get me in the mood for the Halloween season than reading a supernatural tale, which is exactly what I did this week.

What title did I read?

I read the supernatural fantasy Unearthed: A Death Seeker Novel by Cecy Robson. It centers around Olivia Finn, a pixie who's hiding on Earth from Death! Yes, I said Death! Pixies are from a paradise realm called Fae that was destroyed by Death itself. The survivors of Fae took refuge on Earth. Olivia, like many pixies, tries her best to blend into society so she can avoid the death hounds.

However, she cannot hide forever!

Eventually, Death discovers Olivia's location and learns she might be immune to its deadly grip. Word gets out about Olivia's power over Death and, now, other Faes see her as a savior.

No longer able to run and hide from Death, the only way Olivia can survive is for her to embrace her true self.

“Death is only the beginning.”- Unearthed, Cecy Robson

Final Thoughts
I have a bad habit of wanting to review books strictly based on the covers, which I made the decision to read Unearthed without glancing at the actual blurb, so I didn't realize this book was about Faes (otherwise known as fairies and pixies) until after I started reading it. I have nothing against Fae stories but it has been awhile since I've read such a book involving the mythical creatures. However, this is the first time I've seen Faes mixed in with dragons, gargoyles, elves, and the Grim Reaper! 

The novel is written really well with no narrative or pacing issues, which, unfortunately, are the two main issues I've always had with the genre and it's a good thing they are none found in this tale. The main character, Olivia, is very likeable and I easily connected with her from the beginning. The dialogue was just okay for me; nothing earth shattering but passable.

Overall, Unearthed: A Death Seeker Novel is an intriguing start to a new fantasy series. The author has created an unique world with mythical creatures who live within our world.
