Tooth and Nail by Jennifer Safrey EARLY REVIEW

Tooth and Nail by Jennifer Safrey 

Egalley thanks to Night Shade Books

Synopsis from Goodreads
Gemma Fae Cross, a tough-girl amateur boxer whose fiance is running for congress, has just made a startling discovery about herself. She is half faerie - and not just any faerie, but a tooth faerie! A hybrid of fae and human, Gemma is destined to defend the Olde Way and protect the fae - who are incapable of committing violence - from threats to their peaceful and idyllic way of life, which must be maintained by distilling innocence collected from children''s baby teeth. But when a threat to the fae mission emerges, Gemma is called upon to protect her heritage, and become a legendary fae warrior... even if it means sacrificing everything she knows about being human!
UK Release 24th Jan 2012

Interesting concept, but the execution is somewhat dry, and that's probably why I couldn't give this book a higher rating.

I mean, tooth fairy? How awesome is that? The evil plot of stealing children's innocence early so the teeth will get corrupted and the Fae won't gather vital for them Old Magic should  have worked. The identity of the villain is pretty cool, Gemma's situation as someone who is in the spotlight as a girlfriend of a young politician adds spice to the whole thing. The training, the job, the world-building - it all should have worked.


Either the story didn't gain intensity at all or lost focus too early. It's all smudged, the threads stay loose, the reality of the conflict fails to grab your attention. It just wasn't sharp enough.

I did enjoy the book, but it wasn't memorable and didn't affect me in any way unfortunately.

Хоть и неплохо написано, хоть концепция книги и интересная, а вот не вышла у писательницы изумительная история к моему сожалению.

Джемма узнаёт, что она - полукровка между светлыми фэ и людьми, что позволяет ей стать защитником фэ, так как полнокровные фэ лишены аггрессии и не могут драться.

Светлые фэ собирают выпавшие зубы детишек, чья невинность и чистота подпитывыют своё волшебство. Джемма начинает свою подготовку зубной феи раскрывает чёрный план одного дантиста испортить чистоту детишек специальной пастой и лишить светлых фэ их магии. Вы думаете, я пошутила? :) Не-а.

Ситуация усложняется тем, что Джемма - партнёр молодого активного политика, который пытается попасть в Конгресс, и ей нужно быть очень осторожной, чтобы её тайна случайно не раскрылась.

В общем, читалось нормально, но как-о книга оказалась не доведена до ума, конфликт не вызвал никаких чувств, интенсивности не было. Как то всё было тихо и уныло. Поэтому, читать или не читать порекомендовать не могу...

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
