Lament by Maggie Steifvater

Maggie Steifvater

Lament: The Fairy Queen’s Deception

This book was a really interesting take on the mythology of fairies and of Irish lore. It was integrated into modern times so that it was not out of date or ancient, or foolish sounding. This book is about a girl named Deirdre who suddenly finds herself enamored with a strange boy named Luke. She soon learns there is much more to him than meets the eye, and much more about herself. She is a cloverhand, a human who can draw the fair folk like a beacon. However, the Queen of the fairies has decided Luke, as her reluctant assassin, is going to kill Deirdre to remove her as a threat.  

(most suitable for high school readers)
