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 poor habit of wanting to review books based only on their covers, so I chose to read Unearthed without even looking at the actual blurb. As a result, I didn't realize this book was about Faes (also known as fairies and pixies) until I had already begun reading it. I have nothing against Fae stories, but I haven't read a novel concerning mythical beings in a long time. But this is the first time I've ever seen Faes coexisting with dragons, gargoyles, elves, and the Grim Reaper! 

Fortunately, the two main problems I've always had with the genre—narrative and pacing—are not present in this story, so it's a good thing the writing is excellent. Olivia, the protagonist, is a very likable person, and I found it easy to relate to her right away. I thought the dialogue was pretty mediocre; nothing revolutionary, but adequate nonetheless.

Unearthed: A Death Seeker Novel is a fascinating beginning to a new fantasy series. Mythical creatures that exist in our world have been included in the author's distinctively imagined universe.╌★★★★✩
