All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them...beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland.
In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don't see. Her best friend Logan suddenly acts very protective.
Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That's fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.
First off, I want to say that I really did like this book. In fact I think it will be a great series but yet, I couldn't help thinking that it was a little too much like Julie Kagawa and Carrie Jones's series combined.
Fairies, werewolves, pixies a girl who didn't know she was a fairy princess to the Summer King.
A handsome prince of the Winter Court. One hunky best friend who is in love with her, a pixie king that wants her for his bride...See what I mean?
At any rate, it won't keep me from reading the rest of the series and Gow is still a fantastic writer and the book still had enough differences to (hopefully) make it its own story and not a repeat or knockoff of ones already out there.
