Reading Wednesdays – Book review: One Way Fare

  • Title: One Way Fare by Barb Taub and Hannah Taub
  • Genre: Paranormal Fantasy

What do you get when you have a demon, a half-angel, an accountant with superpowers, and a rock star? A group destined to save the world, apparently.

When the fate of a magical city that allows those with special gifts to live a normal life is threatened, Gaby, Luic, Thomas, and Leila must find a way to save the city and keep history intact. It may be harder than they thought – the angels aren’t necessarily on their side.

One Way Fare was an enjoyable book – the story was interesting, and I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen. I liked the time travel aspects, and the characters were pretty fun to read, too. I did have a few minor problems, though. Without revealing too much, one of the girls ended up with the wrong guy (in my opinion) – there was almost too much emphasis on quoting things I’m not familiar with (I’ve only seen Princess Bride once, and I have no idea what the Evil Overlord’s Manual is …) – and the pacing of the story was a little off. Granted, I usually pick the wrong guy in love triangles, am perfectly aware that I’m hopelessly ignorant of popular culture, and I often have trouble following pacing (mainly because I read too fast). So do take those complaints with a grain of salt.

That said, I did find the book enjoyable, and I’ll definitely pick up the next one to find out what happens next. After all, there are still siblings missing – and maybe there’s still hope for my favorite character.

I selected this book as part of Rosie’s Book Review Challenge – a really neat idea! Be sure to check out her blog for reviews of other great books!

  1. What a fun review! I particularly like your opening. (Um… if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, can I flatter the heck out of this?) Oh, and don’t worry about that “favorite character”. You’re absolutely right about his future role! Thanks again for the review.
