    I really enjoy Alex Bledsoe's voice. His writing is easy yet rich and full. Perfect for the subject matter of North America's fairy population. It's not an urban fantasy, it's more a contemporary, rural fantasy, I think. Set in the Appalachian mountains and peopled with a whole bunch of unique characters, it's the place where Rob Quillan, a musician haunted by tragedy, comes in search of a song to heal him. Now there may be other books out there about the other-worldly creatures in this part of North America, but I can't really recall any. As it is Bledsoe walks the perfect line of keeping the story sounding ... um, not of the city .... yet not sounding like the Clampetts. His characters are characters, not caricatures and some you love, some you hate and some you just... know. It's a homey book, but with an edge. :) And the fairy-folk themselves. They're not the grand lord and lady types, not the ethereal little nymphs, not the austere folk we see portrayed so often. They're good, they're bad, they're dark, they're light and they're not quite like anything I've read about before. I think if you're a fan of Charles de Lint, you'll enjoy this series.

    Fantastical hillbilly fairies

    Once again, this author paints a masterpiece. Think of how much you loved bedtime stories and fairytales when you were a child. Think of your fondest memories of them. This is your chance to experience that and more as an adult in one written for an adult. The Tufa are every day people like you and I. Their stories are made up of good times and bad times. They live a hard life in the mountains of Tennessee. As the drama unfolds, we see they are much more than what appears to your average human. Their town, Needsville, can only be found by Tufa or those that the night wind sees worthy. And when the Tufa gather to play music, magic happens. I loved this book. We see a lot of Bliss in it. Not so much of Mandalay. This story plays a big part in explaining Rockhouse’s life why he is like he is. Although he has always been an evil constant, I couldn’t help but feel a little bad for him because, after all, he was once such a powerful creature. I guess it would be more fitting to say I pity him now. There were also some really funny parts. I loved how someone called them all a bunch of hillbilly fairies. 🧚‍♂️ If you like audiobooks, you will love this one. The narrator is to die for. I hope he does more of the series. I have both the book and the audiobook and will be enjoying them again soon.
