Magic still lingers in the mist-covered corners of the world, wherever the Old Ways are remembered. However, as civilization and reason scoff at the Fair Folk, the paths to power have been forgotten by all but a few.

Lily Boyd was meant to become a faerie doctor, a warden of humans and a keeper of balance, until disbelief and pragmatism led her away from the hidden world and into a mundane life. But truth has a way to be Heard and she will be forced to face it if she wants to save her family.

Armed with nothing but her childhood memories and protected by a debt of gratitude she doesn’t understand, Lily must decide who to trust while she navigates a world that is darker and more twisted than she is prepared for.

And should she make the wrong choice, should she mistake friend and foe… the eternal balance between the Faerie Courts may shatter, and then there will be more than Lily’s life on the line.

My Review:

If I were to describe this novel in one word, it would be magical. Nieto’s writing is enchanting. Her story is refreshing & unique. It is also exciting & adventurous. I haven’t been on a journey like this in quite a while. Nieto brings this world to life in a remarkable way. You can not only see, but feel also feel the shifts between the human and fae worlds, between dark and light, between us and them. This adds a remarkable layer of complexity to the tale.

The uniqueness and presence of the main characters in this tale really make them memorable. They are individually developed in a gradual manner that allows you to know them in an intricate way. I found myself trying to help them along their travels. I actually found myself giving them advice out loud. I also found myself trying to travel with them. These characters become so real that you cannot help it.

As a whole, this was a quick, light read that had my imagination going wild. Nieto captured my heart & my soul. I will definitely be waiting impatiently for the next instalment in this series.
