NATIONAL BESTSELLER * A curmudgeonly professor journeys to a small town in the far north to study faerie folklore and discovers dark fae magic, friendship, and love in the start of a heartwarming and enchanting new fantasy series. "So endlessly enchanting, so rich and complete and wise that you'll walk away half ensorcelled."--Melissa Albert, author of The Hazel Wood Cambridge professor Emily Wilde is good at many things: She is the foremost expert on the study of faeries. She is a genius scholar and a meticulous researcher who is writing the world's first encyclopaedia of faerie lore. But Emily Wilde is not good at people. She could never make small talk at a party--or even get invited to one. And she prefers the company of her books, her dog, Shadow, and the Fair Folk to other people. So when she arrives in the hardscrabble village of Hrafnsvik, Emily has no intention of befriending the gruff townsfolk. Nor does she care to spend time with another new arrival: her dashing and insufferably handsome academic rival Wendell Bambleby, who manages to charm the townsfolk, muddle Emily's research, and utterly confound and frustrate her. But as Emily gets closer and closer to uncovering the secrets of the Hidden Ones--the most elusive of all faeries--lurking in the shadowy forest outside the town, she also finds herself on the trail of another mystery: Who is Wendell Bambleby, and what does he really want? To find the answer, she'll have to unlock the greatest mystery of all--her own heart.… (mere)

Emily Wilde wants to complete her Encyclopaedia of Faeries and win tenure at Cambridge in the early 20th century. On a near-arctic island, she happily searches out the enigmatic Hidden Ones to complete it. But she has offended the head woman of the town and may not be able to buy the supplies or get the local cooperation she needs. Enter the Cambridge professor who charms everyone and always has assistants to carry his loads. A sprightly told story of using Fae lore to deal with Fae, a character that is always more interested in and comfortable with scholarship than people. Oh, and she has an interesting dog as a companion. ( )

In 1909, Cambridge academic Emily Wilde is staying in Ljosland, studying their Faerie folk for her encyclopaedia and academic papers. She manages to get off on the wrong foot with the villagers, and a fellow academic, Wendell Bambleby (who may be more than he appears) shows up on her doorstep and upends all her plans. But as they begin to work together, Emily finds herself - in the interest of her research, of course - helping the villagers who have been having many people go missing in the last few years.

The book is written as Emily's journal, and it's a delightful read. She attempts to stay very academic and dry, but as time goes on you see she really has a fair amount of intuition for using Faerie stories and, dare I say, emotion and care for people. I loved the world building and the characters, and I'll be reading the sequel soon. ( )

I was on the fence about 3 or 4 stars for this book. But because I will likely read the sequel, I decided on the higher rating. ( )

**4.5 Reading**

This is such an interesting and exciting way to read fantasy specifically that regarding Fae. I think the academic part of my brain was itched with this one, specifically in the sense of the footnotes and generally academic overarching theme of the narrative. Regardless the journal entries as a way to provide the story to readers was such a fun choice and while I was initially nervous, I found myself really enjoying that part of the story. Of course I was completely intrigued and committed to the characters and found them to be both approachable and lovable. The relationship development as well was really well done. I found the entire thing very exciting and I can't wait to read the next one! ( )

I found it very slow to read, but interesting. It's like reading a research report with footnotes and that's probably why it's written that way...both main characters are academicians. ( )
