I enjoyed Emily Wilde’s first adventures in Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries, so I was excited to get an ARC from NetGalley for the second book in the series (read previous review here). This one was just as fun although I felt it read a little more technical than the first. Both are written as if they are Emily’s notes from her research into the world of the Fae. The first book did have a lot more footnotes than the second, which made the second feel a little less cluttered, although it may not matter if you read these in print form.
Emily’s second adventure is the search for a way to get her partner, Wendall (who happens to be a Fairy King) away from his murderous step mother. Traveling to many Fae lands and narrow escapes from dark magic, Emily is once again downplaying her epic adventures in the notes we get to read. I like the academic feel and the fun creatures we get to meet in Emily’s books, I would give them both a read if you haven’t yet!
