Behind the Faerying Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where gods and creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess is hidden away.
Quinn Sinclair lives an ordinary life with her less-than-loving mother in Conifer, Colorado, clueless of her true nature. On the night of her birthday, a staggering betrayal sends her life spinning out-of-control. As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she is transported into a Magykal battle–forever changing her life.
Arik Morgaine–Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm–tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans.
Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers.
Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks?
New Adult. Recommended for 18 and above. Mature themes, sexual situations, and profanity.
Wow! This one had a whopper of an ending! I absolutely can NOT wait for the next book!
I really enjoyed both of the main characters. I enjoyed everything about their relationship, and the fictitious world they were a part of. I was annoyed with Quinn to begin with; she would jump from one guy to the next, but after straightening things out with Arik it was all good! Quinn’s brother Iain got on my nerves when he started taking on the high school cheerleader persona. I preferred his tough, protective side. Arik was wonderful from start to finish, though (at least how I saw the finish – sorry I can’t give you anymore than that – you’ll have to read it!!). He’s by far my favorite character. I have to add that I also very much enjoyed a couple of the minor characters.
The plot was smoothly paced and never seemed to drag. I thought it was both unique and intriguing. Some of the scenes had me laughing out loud. There was also a twist I didn’t see coming, and that doesn’t count the ending. I enjoyed the whole mythical world, but there were times that I wish some of the creatures were better described. When the descriptions were given, I enjoyed them. I did appreciate that the descriptions weren’t overbearing, though. Many books in this genre hold so many descriptions that it takes away from both the characters and plot, but this book didn’t.
The ending left me reeling! I am REALLY looking forward to book 2!!
