The Fair Isle Trilogy by Tessonja Odette
Every young woman dreams of marrying a king.
Everyone except for me.
Because the king I am to wed has razor sharp fangs and a thirst for blood…
The Fair Isle Trilogy is a complete series collection, featuring three full length novels in a single volume: To Carve a Fae Heart, To Wear a Fae Crown, and To Spark a Fae War.
All my life I knew I’d come of age during the Hundred Year Reaping. According to the ridiculous treaty, two human girls are sent to the faelands as brides for the fearsome fae king and his devilish younger brother.
Not me. I was supposed to be safe. Two girls were chosen from my village already. But when they are executed for offending the king, my sister and I are sent in their place.
What a mess. Then again, maybe it’s not so bad. The younger brother I’m paired with doesn’t seem as monstrous as I’d expected. He’s delightfully handsome too. But nothing compares to the chilling, dangerous beauty of the fae king. And when my sister flees the castle and her terrifying husband-to-be, I’m left to marry him instead.
If I go through with this, I might not survive my wedding night. If I don’t, no one is safe, neither human nor fae. An ancient war will return, bringing devastation we haven’t seen in a thousand years. Can I sacrifice myself for the good of my people? Or will a dangerous desire be the death of me first?
If I don’t lose my heart, the king will certainly lose his. I’ll carve it out with an iron blade if I have to.

I want to mention that this book had soo many vibes from other novels and I think it is worth mentioning now. If you want to read a book that reminds of ACOTAR, read this trilogy, if the lore of fae interested you in Cruel Prince, read this trilogy, if you love a battle between human and fae, read this trilogy.
There are many traits from other’s work in this trilogy but I really liked the enemies to lovers trope and especially the slowburn romance. I basically read the trilogy in about a day and I don’t regret it.
Eve is a determined woman who wants to be a surgean but all her plans fail when she discovers that her and her sister are set to enter the fae world and marry the King and Prince of Autumn. But as soon as they enter into the palace, things start to go off track and Eve is set to marry King Aspen, not his brother. There is a lot of tug and throw between the two of them and they soon start to understand one another.
There were times where it became pretictable but they are very small compared to the world Odette created. I really liked all the courts and I loved that there were more compaired to the ACOTAR world. The world and development of charcaters were so much fun to explore, the development of Evelyn’s heritage did keep me curious as I did suspect it from book 1. This book is very political, magical based plot with romance. The romance in this trilogy is soo good, Eve and Aspen are very Alpha and try to think of one another, they help each other through serious moments and are often interrupted when they want to be romantic(how typical right) but it is their passionate love for one another that can easily put on hold while battling a war between them and the humans.
I found myself really liking this book too much and I really loved the scope of the world, I have also read one of the books in the spin-off series and it was soo good. I highly recommend it.
I hope you have had a great week, we are approaching another bank holiday weekend and I am going to spend the weekend reading. I have been reading too many books on my Kindle and have negeleted my physical TBR. So I am hoping to get through at least one physical book this weekend
Happy Reading xx
