Deadmarsh Fey is a long dark fantasy novel written about Roger Knightley, a young boy who has heard many storied of Deadmarch but this time around, on his summertime vacation, he realizes that everything has changed. There are some family secrets that he never knew of and his cousin, Lockie encounter some extraordinary things.
Roger’s oldest cousin, Travers, is also acting very weird. Master Coffyn, who has given a moonstone to Travers, has control over Lockie. The story unfolds many side stories and ends the tales by providing a fulfilling completion.
What I found worth mentioning was the complexity of the storyline. I believe anyone that has just begun reading fantasy novels would find this one confusing.
The novel would suit an experienced dark fantasy reader and someone that is familiar with several plots in one storyline. That is when the ready would fully comprehend the magnitude of the experience. With over 600 pages, it is definitely not a one-sit kind of book and I believe the length of the storyline did provide the background needed in order for future sequels.
I recommend this book to dark fantasy readers who enjoy complex readers.
