Book Review: Limerick


“Jensen hoped she’d never need Shimmerspell again, but now someone is stalking her, someone claiming to be the Lady of the Lake.

To make matters worse, witches and dragons have come out to play.

And Jensen must figure out how to harness her power and accept her destiny before she ends up losing everyone she loves.”

I must admit that after reading the first A Faerie Tale Girl Novella, Shimmerspell, I wasn’t sure I needed to continue reading the next installment. But thanks to Ms. Spencer’s awesome ability to leave us hanging I bought Limerick the same day. And now I am hooked.

Limerick is well written and chalked full of twists and surprises. This short novella manages to have you at the edge of your seat wondering who is friend and who is foe. The additions of the witches and dragons only add to the excitement of the fantastical faerie world.

The dialogue seems to have improved since the first novella and the characters have acquired a depth to them that truly makes the story enjoyable. And as always, Kimberly Spencer’s descriptive writing and the way she leaves us hanging has me excited to read the next Novella.

“The nixie’s eyes popped open the same time her lips parted.
‘There once was a girl of the sea
Who refused to see who she could be.
The strength of the world
In the hands of a girl
Consumed by the curse of three.”

If you want a fun, little book to read on a lazy afternoon with well-developed characters and a refreshing new idea of what a world of Fae would be like then I can assure you that Limerick is the book for you!

It’s settled: Kimberly Spencer is a total and complete tease! Much like the first Faerie Tale Girl Novella, this short story leaves you hanging but unfortunately the third novella, Triquetra, is not out yet.

Buy this Novella…it’s only 99 cents!
