Read any trilogy series and tell me if the below observation isn’t true:
The following titles are recommendations to readers who want a frightened “AHHHH!!!” added with a heartwarming “AWWWWWWW”
A word of warning that dark and/or brutal scenes abound in the following books. But also expect moments of tenderness and love that only serve to highlight both aspects of the story. Because let’s face it, how can you truly appreciate works that may (or may not) kill off characters if you don’t even care about the characters?
And how exactly do you realize the depth of love you have for the fictional characters of a story if you don’t have a sinking feeling that they might be lost or hurt beyond repair?

Chapter 3 The perfectly armed up Hermina
We grew up on fairy tales wherein fairies would come to the aid of a young and deserving hero or heroine. They’re benevolent. And all they want to do is to help
But once you go beyond the children’s section of the bookstore, you’ll find that fairies or the fae are usually depicted as cruel or mad or simply out of touch with normal human reality and morality. Being near-immortal and powerful has them usually portrayed as looking down on humans (though that doesn’t stop them from taking humans as pets/lovers and producing half-human offspring with them)
Of course, this is not to say all fae characters in books are evil. Some harm humans as a way to protect themselves. Fae are usually portrayed as very connected to nature (eg. forests, lands, rivers etc). And with human beings doing whatever they want to the land, it seriously pisses the Fae off that their home gets polluted and eventually destroyed.
This just goes to show that once you browse the sections for young adults and adults, Fae get the morally gray and/or black shade
