Mini-Reviews: Wayward Fae Paranormal Prison series – By: J.N. Colon

Book 1 – Crimes of Fire

Fae freak. Killer. Abomination.
I’ve been accused of terrible crimes.
And I’m far from innocent.

My uncontrollable powers earned me a cell in Wayward Fae Penitentiary where the inmates have it out for me and the guards turn a blind eye to every bit of violence. I’m here for one reason only, and that’s to assassinate the ruthless unseelie prince.

Viktor claims he’s going to break me, make me wish I never set foot in his prison. If that were true, why does he keep saving me from the dangerous alpha shifter salivating for my blood?

WFP is not your average lockup. The prince has more authority than the warden, creatures roam the halls at night, and a war between unseelies and shifters is brewing.

When I’m viciously attacked, Viktor brings me back from the brink of death, but no one could have foreseen the consequences. How could I go through with my mission now?

If I kill him, I’ll become the monster everyone thinks I am.

If I don’t, innocent blood will spill.

What a fantastic start to a bad ass series.  I love the different creatures and lore she throws into the book, from Fae, succubus, leprechaun, dochars, shifters… you get a little bit of everything. 

For our MCs, I really enjoyed following her. Also, on the other side though to give Sloane such a rough background is heartbreaking. Viktor… sexxxyy AF. I also love that he is super tall to her super short. Shipping them hard!

Side characters: I loved Kimber!  I really want to know why her and Tristan are in the prison and hoping we find out since they both seem like good people.

The fight ring brought a nice aspect I was not expecting. Really excited to continue the series.

Book 2 – Crimes of Ice

No one said being a magical assassin was easy…

I had one job in Wayward Fae Penitentiary. Kill the merciless unseelie prince. Instead, we’ve been bound by blood, and there’s no escaping him. Not even when he promises to make me suffer.

Viktor’s torment doesn’t go as planned when the dochar alpha in the Otherworld seeks revenge, but I’m not so sure my death will satisfy the shifter’s thirst. And now that the Fae realm knows of my existence, others will come to stake their claim.

It’s not my blood they want, though. They’d rather enslave me.

As chaos descends on W.F.P., the Fae queen pushes me over the edge, and I fall into enemy hands.

Not even Viktor can save me now.

Everyone wants the throne. And if I don’t forgive myself and embrace my powers, they’re going to use me as a weapon to wage war.

I’m impressed she had the murder attempt happen during the book and not end with it. I thought she (and most authors) would keep us waiting. I was pleasantly surprised by that!

I like the cycle back in the plot and that old foes aren’t forgotten. Also, loved getting to meet Kaden and hoping we see more of him.  Onto Book 3!

Book 3 – Crimes of Shadows

My very existence has painted a target on my back. And every Fae vying for power wants me in their arsenal…

After escaping the alpha shifter’s captivity in the Otherworld and returning to Wayward Fae Penitentiary, my life has been thrown into chaos. The elf potions Cortland shoved down my throat did more damage than he wanted, and the unseelie queen is beginning to grow suspicious of my true loyalties.

And then there’s Prince Viktor Hale. I can’t avoid those heated stares and searing kisses any more than I can stop the bond between us from growing stronger. But neither of us could have foreseen the consequences of playing with fire and ice coming our way.

When W.F.P. is infiltrated by enemies, I’m ensnared in a dangerous plot between powerful Fae. Either I comply, or my freedom and Viktor’s is forfeit.

As the battle for the throne draws near, secrets unravel and I’m betrayed at the worst moment possible.

How can I save my sister if I’m dead?

So many moving parts in this one. Faolan, Courtland, Ren, Ulina, Viktor, Isadora… I just kept trying to piece it all together and figure out where each person fit. 

There were super great twists in this one. Two actually that I wasn’t really expecting. Really excited to see where this goes and how it needs to play out. Onto the last one!

Book 4 – Crimes of Magic

When the world finds out who I am, will it be the key to defeating the unseelie queen? Or my death?

Isadora is out for blood, and her savage retaliation will make me suffer in the worst ways imaginable. My incarceration was a cakewalk compared to the medieval hell I’m tossed into now. And without the unseelie prince by my side, my days are numbered.

Between vicious inmates, heartless guards, and the threat of my enemies looming around the corner, I might not survive the rest of my sentence. Nowhere is safe, not even my cell.

When a sticky web of secrets untangles, earth-shattering revelations steer me onto a treacherous path. Viktor can’t deny his destiny any more than I can ignore mine, and our bond may not be enough to keep the darkness from tearing us apart.

Battle lines have been drawn. The fight for the throne—and my soul—has arrived.

I’m not just trying to save my sister anymore. The fate of the Fae world is in my hands. And to destroy the monsters, I might have to become one.

So so so dang good. Absolutely the best of the series and a fantastic wrap up. What a fantastic major twist and ending. I had a feeling about it, and was so excited to see it turned out to be true. 

There were so many twists and exciting moments in this last installment. I also loved how JN wrapped up so many lose ends effortlessly and took characters to where they needed to be. 

Also, I need Faolan and Tristan books asap. Please and thank you. 🙂
