Fae or Foe? is the first book in The Cracklock Saga by C A Deegan. The novel follows the story of Jack Crackley as he struggles to find balance in a world that grows considerably stranger with every passing day. He has a lot of worries and things to stress about, and he doesn’t need more. Apart from staying out of certain people’s ways, making sure his mother is okay, and doing his daily paper round, Jack wants nothing to do with anything that will further complicate his life. However, with a strange Child Aging Illness on the loose and absolutely no cure, there is an uncertainty in the air that even the uninterested Jack cannot ignore. Jack can suddenly see the Fae Folk, and this newfound ability has placed a target on his back. Before Jack knows it, the existence of the strange world of the Fae relies on Jack.
I love it when a young adult fantasy is engaging from the very beginning without being far-fetched. Fae or Foe? is intense, yet it is very quirky at the same time. The author breathes life into the plot with his witty sentences and situations. I adored the dialogues and how each character has a distinct style. C. A. Deegan carefully weaves intricate scenes with well-developed characters to transport readers into Jack’s world. The plot is rightfully complicated. It has the ideal amount of humor and tense drama to make readers stick with the story until the end. This is a superb series to look forward to.
