This book wasn't great, wasn't an encyclopedia, and wasn't about faeries. Every other page was about a ghost, a god (who wasn't one of the Tuatha Dé Danann), or some other mythical creature that was never a faerie. The writing was also too annoying to read, but most of what I did read was inaccurate. Banshees are not evil, leannán sídhes do cause death, and White Ladies are ghosts. Plenty of actual faeries are left out too, like Far Dorocha, the gancanagh, and even the tooth fairy (and in this book you'd expect the tooth fairy to show up). The one good thing I can say about this book is that the drawings are nice. Overall though, it just wasn't what I was looking for.

In this book the faeries are not pretty. They will either eat you or seduce you. Or both. Very interesting.
