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.… (més)

This book was exactly the slow burn I needed. I can't begin to talk about how many times I laughed out loud or put my hand over my heart because Fawcett wrote something I've thought for a long time. All of the reveals are wonderful, and the prose is gorgeous. I didn't know I needed a novel that was both dark and lovely at the same time. Can't wait for the sequel. ( )

This was so cute and cozy!

I liked the lore but found the footnotes to not be useful most of the time. The characters were great, and Emily was a breath of fresh air as far as how scientifically she thought. I'm so over grown women swooning at the first sign of an attractive man. ( )

This was a fun light read. Faries are mostly buttheads and jerks, that is what make this book so much fun. Reads like an old school adventure novel. ( )

Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia Of Faeries is a fantastical, magical, wonderful book. Emily Wilde is an excellent protagonist, a disheveled academic pursuing her studies of the Folk into the snowy winter realm of Ljosland. She is accompanied by her dog Shadow and joined by fellow Cambridge academician Wendell Bambleby, a sort of Gilderoy Lockhart character, but much more interesting and magical. The people Emily meets during her stay in the village of Hrafnsvik are nicely rendered; I particularly liked Lilja and Margaret, two young women in love. Lilja is a helluva woodchopper.

Emily does encounter Faeries during the course of the book, and her purely intellectual pursuits become personal and philanthropic as she undertakes adventures that are perilous, potentially life-threatening.

I really liked the writing in Emily Wilde, which takes the form of Emily's field journal. Very much capturing the tone of a scholar, complete with footnotes, but one who has an eye for beauty and detail, and is able to render poetic descriptions of landscapes and winter skies, vivid descriptions of Faerie jewels and mortal meals, and Bambleby's impossibly golden hair. Sprinkled with discourses on the Fae, and a few Faerie tales as well, this was a gripping read, really providing Emily with a distinct voice.

Reading Emily Wilde over the course of a few chilly days in February was perfect. Author Heather Fawcett very expertly captured and described the wintry realm of Ljosland, the snows, the gray skies, the icy Fae, the gray-and-white trees. I was always very happy to return with Emily and Wendell to the fireplace in their cabin.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Heather Fawcett is a newly discovered writer for me and I will most certainly be reading more of her novels. ( )

Täitsa tore lugu pseudoviktoriaanliku aja naisteadlasest, kes uurib haldjaid (jms üleloomulikke olendeid). Nauditav segu uudsest lähenemisest ja vanadest klišeedest, väga mõnus lugemine. Lõpp vajus natule ära ja kippus venima, aga sellegipoolest, iga kulutatud sekundit väärt. ( )
