Book Blurb

Ashlyn McVean doesn’t believe in fairy tales.

That is, until Ashlyn is thrown into the crosshairs of grudges her grandmother created long ago. After finding out she is one of two people able to cross between faerie realms, Ashlyn is faced with trying to understand her abilities, along with navigating a new relationship with her boyfriend, Liam. As if being on a centuries old hit list and dealing with crazed pixies isn’t enough, her new abilities mean trouble for Liam.

Knowing her new life puts everyone she loves in danger, Ashlyn must decide what’s most important in her life between friends, family, love and ultimately, realms.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Ashlyn just lost her father.  She is distraught, threatening the paramedic.  Her grandmother scolds her about her behavior.  Her grandmother is constantly criticizing her.  Ashlyn knows how her grandmother feels about her.
Jamie and Reece are her solace.  She can’t face her family so her friends are what she clings to.  She was supposed to go to Ireland with her father for winter break but now she is taking Jamie.  Her grandmother won’t let her back out completely.  Once there she and Jamie are greeted by Irish relatives.  While there she learns exactly what she is and who her grandmother is.
Enemies are coming after her and Liam appoints himself guardian.  He has no idea what she is.  Her life becomes so complicated.  The secrets she is keeping is overwhelming.  Her enemies are trying to pull her family apart.  The Glaistig will want to use her in the war against Andou and his changelings.  Her life is never going to be the same and it’s time to embrace who she really is.
This was a cool book.  There were a lot of shocking secrets and suspense.  I like how Ashlyn was a regular teenager until the night her father dies.  The author did a great job of writing about the shock.  The scene was heart wrenching and full of all range of emotions.  I felt for her instantly.  She also has to let down Reece easily.  She doesn’t feel remotely the same. Then add in her distant grandmother and her psychotic best friend.  The author created quite a story that was hard to put down.  The first scene pulls you in then the fight scenes and the secrets keep you reading.

Reece and Liam’s reactions to everything was in itself stressful on top of everything else.  It was quite the ride for Ashlyn and the reader is right beside her the whole time.  A great read.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
