This book is a great faerie reference book. It has over 400 pages full of faeries from all over the world. This is an encyclopedia, so true to encyclopedia style there is only a small blurb about each entry, but there are a lot of entries and what is there is very informative. Also, the appendix separates the faeries into categories, like nymphs or goblins, etc. and then tells under those categories the faeries are separated by country, which is really useful.
Something I didn’t like so much was in the actual listings there would be a term that would only say refer to another entry. This is fine as a way to both save space and to save on reiterations, but I would have preferred that the author at least give the country of origin or some reason why that term exists. There must be some difference, even if the difference is only geographical and the being is more or less the same, if there wasn’t there wouldn’t be two words for it. So that disappointed me.
Overall it’s a good resource though.
