Girls Night out review

Girls' Night Out by Jenna Black
Girls' Night Out (Faeriewalker, #3.5)Dana is finally getting comfortable with her life as the only Faeriewalker in Avalon. She’s formed an alliance with the Erlking, a truce with the Queen of the Seelie Court, and best of all, no one’s tried to kill her for weeks.
Enter Althea - the teenage daughter of Mab, the Unseelie Queen. Dana knows from the moment she sets eyes on the wannabe Goth chick that Al is trouble, but she finds herself drawn to the wounded soul she glimpses beneath the Faerie glamour.

When Al asks Dana to take her into the mortal world to visit the human boyfriend her mother has driven away, Dana refuses, knowing that Queen Mab would hold her personally responsible if anything happened to her daughter. But Al is a Faerie princess, and she’s not used to taking no for an answer.

Will Dana ignore her common sense and risk the Unseelie Queen’s wrath to help her new BFF? And if not, just how far is Al willing to go get her own way?

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

I love the Faeriewalker series, but I always feel sorry for Dana because she's never quite in charge of her own choices. And this novella is no different. I assumed that when she finally agreed to help Al it was because it peer pressure, but once again the Fae find a way to use magic against her and despite the fact that she is able to tell that Al is doing magic she just assumes (with a whole bunch of other people) that the magic she is doing is simply for her glamour spell.

Thankfully in this episode Dana is actually starting to think more for herself , and although she still manages to get caught up in trouble she is able to come up with a plan to help herself out of it. I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see how things played out between Dana and Mab once they got back to Avalon... but i guess that will help fan the flames of another book.
If you haven't read any of the Faeriewalker series yet then you should definitely check them out.

The short story prequel Remedial Magic can be found here where you can read it for free on the publishers website, or use the links to download it from kindle or Nook
