By Force (Forever Fae #1) By Sara Hubbard [Review]

By Force (Forever Fae Book 1)RELEASE DATE:  January 4, 2017
AUTHORS: Sara Hubbard
GENRE: New-Adult, Fantasy, Romance.
SUMMARY: Kidnapping Isame would set them free…

Isame wanted freedom: the freedom to travel, the freedom to explore, but most of all, the freedom to choose the life she wanted over the life—and the husband—her parents had chosen for her. But when Isame leaves home to accept another man’s proposal, she happens across five fierce, handsome warriors. She wonders why they’ve travelled so far from home, but she never imagines their purpose might have something to do with her. Not even after they kidnap her.

Remmie is a man of honor and fierce loyalty. So when his king commands him to find a specific young woman on the island of Copaxa, he’s prepared to obey. But he’s not prepared for the woman to change everything. Isame is special. He can see it from the start. But how can one puny woman make him question everything he’s always known, including the rightness of doing what he’s promised?


Fae are one of my favorite paranormal creatures and after seeing that stunning cover, I couldn’t help myself. I wasn’t expecting much from this book but the premise said five handsome fierce warriors so I hoped at-least it’s going to be an entertaining read. By Force turned out to be a good read with enjoyable characters but it does have some flaws. I was also tiny teeny bit disappointed that this book doesn’t have any fae creatures yet so I’m really hoping we have some in the next book.

The story is about Isame who always dreamed of freedom and adventure. She wanted to travel around the world but her dreams shatters when her parents decides to marry her to her best friend Henry whom she only likes as a friend. When Isame and her sister travels to the town, she gets the attention of five fierce handsome warriors who are called savages. On her way back to her home, the savages captures her claiming that she is someone special and they are ordered by the king to bring her to him. Isame always lead a normal life and she don’t understand why the king wants her. Being in the hands of her captors, she endures assaults both physically and emotionally. But one of the young captor named Remmie captures her attention who is gentle and kind towards her more than the others. With each day passing, she tries to interact with her captors even though they are reluctant to talk with her but in time they finally give in. Though the savages eventually grew to like her, they can’t fail their mission because it would be going against the king that would mean death for them and their families. Will the savages hand her over to the king or bring his wrath on them by going against him.

I liked Isame! She is strong headed and sweet character. Even though she’s physically weak,  she’s mentally strong and doesn’t give up easily. She’s also quite protective of her family and her loved ones. Remmie is a complex character despite his hard edged appearance, he does have kind and soft personality. I liked the captor-cative relationship between Isame and Remmie but I was little bit disturbed with Isame’s Infatuation with Remmie and also her intimate thoughts of him at the beginning because she doesn’t even know him well at that time. However, I enjoyed the slow burn romance between them which was filled with lots of tension and angst. The other warriors are pretty hard to like at the start but as the story progressed I grew to like them as well and I would love to know more about them.

The plot is pretty good for an entertaining fantasy read but I was really hoping for more action and magic. Nonetheless, I enjoyed every minute of it. Apart from few draggy scenes, the story is mostly fast paced and told from Isame’s POV. The writing is flawless and easy to understand. The world building is great. I liked the whole medieval setting with some magical elements and mystical creatures.

Overall, I liked it! Even though it wasn’t mindblowingly amazing, it has good plot, setting and characters and I would definitely read the sequel.

Recommend it?

I recommend this to all the readers who likes NA fantasy read filled with adventure, magic and romance.

MY RATING: 4-stars14-stars1 4-stars14-stars1[3.5/5 Stars]

    Wow, I have not seen a faery book in ages (aside from SJM’s stuff), they seem to fall out of vogue a couple of years ago – which is a shame because like you, I really enjoy reading about them. Glad you liked this one despite issues with the pacing.

      Yeah, there are not many faery books releasing these days and that’s why I love browsing through Indie Authors books. 🙂

    The cover for this book is one of the prettiest I’ve seen! I don’t really read NA fantasy or paranormal books, but this sounds like it could be interesting. Thanks for bringing it to my attention – and great review!
