Maggie Stiefvater
*****5 Star

Sixteen-year old Deirdre Monaghan is a prodigiously gifted musician. She's about to find out she's also a clover hand-one who can see faeries.
Unexpectedly, Deirdre finds herself infatuated with a mysterious boy names Luke who enters her ordinary life, seemingly out of thin air. But his interest in her might be something darker than summer romance. When a sinister faerie named Aodhan shows up with deadly orders from the Faerie Queen, it forces Dee fight into the midst of faerie. Caught in the crossfire with Deirdre is James, her wisecracking but loyal best friend.
Deirdre had been wishing her summer weren't so dull, but taking on a centuries-old Faerie Queen isn't exactly what she had in mind.

This book was chock full of imagination, romance and detail. My favorite character was Luke, the way the author described him made him sound like the most perfect person on earth. I also liked all the surprises along the way. Just when the story began to calm down and you thought the trouble was over. Something shocking would happen, I can't tell you what but some of them you just really didn't          expect.                                                                                                        I don't care that the cover is
                                                                                                                  in another language. The pic. is
                                                                                                                               much cooler.                                                                 
If you love romance, bloodshed and faeries, Lament has it all.
