Lydia Carlton is a fairy doctor, one of the few people with the ability to see the magical creatures who share our world. During one of her rare trips to London to visit her father, Lydia’s quiet life is suddenly transformed when she is rescued from kidnappers by a mysterious young man!
Edgar Ashenbert claims to be descended from the human ruler of the fairy kingdom, and he urgently needs Lydia’s help to find and claim his birthright, the legendary sword of the Blue Knight Earl. Things will never be the same for Lydia as she is pulled into a dangerous quest against dark forces!
I was pulled into reading The Earl and The Fairy since the cover is pretty, and the synopsis is fairly interesting as well.
What I liked about this manga is that for the most part the story is short and sweet. The storyline moves very, very quickly. So fast in fact that I’m not eniterly sure of how much time had passed in this first volume. At times, the story is even to-the-point; the characters didn’t dilly-dally around. I’m looking forward to continuing on with this manga to see where the story progresses!
The art work in The Earl and The Fairy is great. I’m genuinely excited about the idea of a Fairy Doctor.
I liked that Lydia is a realistic character; in the fact that at times, due to certain circumstances, Lydia is unsure of whom she should trust.
I didn’t particularly like that Edgar pulled Lydia into helping him. But since there’s nothing that I can do about that fact, I’ll leave it alone.
I gave The Earl and The Fairy, 3 of 5 stars on GoodReads.
