Set against the backdrop of impending environmental disaster, a rising Hollywood actress and an alluring Welsh renegade embark on an unlikely love affair. Originally conceived as a pilot for a television series. A novella-length, fast-paced and fun read.
A book that will appeal to fans of Fae romance, urban fantasy, and new age fiction (as well as anyone who has lived in L.A.), Angela Savidge’s debut novella Urban Faery: A Modern Fantasy touches on such compelling subjects as the Trump administration’s offshore drilling initiative, the revolutionary #TimesUp and #MeToo movements,
and Southern California’s cannabis and surf cultures.

Recipient of a Five Star Reader's Favorite Book Review
It lacked nothing; the protagonists had chemistry, the setting was believable and the narrative was perfection. This is a wonderful start to a series that is going to be a great success.
-Reader's Favorite Book Review 2019
Urban Faery: A Modern Fantasy pretty much stole my afternoon in the most fantastic way! I downloaded it and thought I would read a chapter or so during lunch. Boy was I wrong! I literally could not put the book down. The writing is absolutely stellar, far better than I had anticipated. Angela's command of the language and plot pacing along with beautiful imagery create an addictive read. In fact, I feel like Cate and Luc leapt off the pages and pulled me through a portal into their magical world.
The only thing negative I can say about this book is that it's testing my patience to wait for the second one. I want to binge read about Cate and Luc's excursions like one binge watches their favorite Amazon or Netflix show. It's that good. Read it, you will be happily mesmerized!

Beautiful Imagination. Inspiring Story.
This book opens your mind to an entirely new perspective and enables you to see the environmental problem in a whole new light.
A really nice work of fiction with just the right touch of reality.
I can't wait for the next installment/sequel to Urban Faery!
I read the novella in one day, and it left me wanting more. Very fun, well written, great plot, great pace, superbly unique!
I can't wait for more! My question is when, when, when?
I Really Enjoyed This Book!
I found the plot unique and engaging. The writing was beautiful, and some of the descriptive passages were spectacular.
There was a lot of finesse in this novella which made it flow, and that really added to my enjoyment of this book.
A very unique and fun blend of folklore and modern society. Fresh perspectives on L.A right now, political references, and a very realistic portrayal of modern Western society.
I highly recommend this well written, fast-paced escapist novella.
Fae in Hollywood...
This is one of the most beautifully written romance novels I’ve read. The author describes scenery in such a lush, poetic way! The main character Luc always remained mysterious, and I wanted to know more about him. I felt a lot of sympathy towards Cate, and I’m wondering if there will be a continuation of this story. A lot more questions could be answered, and I want to know will the Fae fully reveal themselves to the human race.
The author described current events so clearly.
If this book is read in one hundred years, the reader will really get a sense of our current political situation.
Great Read! Flows Beautifully!
Superbly written... yet whimsical and fun! I could not put it down. You feel as though you are on the pages with the characters.
Ancient yet relevant. Brilliant! Can't wait for the next book!

A Wonderful Escape Into a Modern Fairy Tale.
A nice novella-length escape into a modern fairy tale with a clear love for LA, the environment, and Welsh mythology. Angela’s imagery and scenic descriptions are masterful, truly transporting the reader out of our reality and into the book. She seamlessly weaves the history of Hollywood, LA, and her characters’ histories throughout the narrative, teaching while entertaining.

“When I first moved to Los Angeles back in 2000, I was very fortunate to be able to observe Southern California’s local surf culture firsthand. I greatly admired and very much envied that extraordinary connection with nature, and Malibu’s allegedly impermeable brotherhood of local surfers set the tone for the writing of this book.”
