Rylie has it all - great friends, dream boy, loving family. But on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, her perfect little world shatters. A stranger claiming to be her real mother appears with a secret: Rylie is a faery whose powers will be unleashed on her birthday. Captured and forced into a new life, Rylie struggles to keep everything she loves and discovers a terrifying truth: some promises cannot be broken.

What I liked about the book: Most book drag the beginning on forever before they get to the actual story. Not this book it gets straight to the story while still gives you enough information.

What I did not like: I did not like how she spent most of the book doing the same thing. It is okay to do the same thing for a day or two but for how long she did it I almost gave up on the book.

My favorite character: My favorite would have to be Lena because of how she reacts. She has to close off herself to survive, but she opens up for Rylie when she realizes she needs it.

My least favorite character: I did not like Adam. I think he could be used more than a thought here and there. He could have reacted to some of Rylie’s reactions.

Would I recommend this book: I would recommend this book to the Fai fans at heart. You get the chilling threat of death. While you get a new kind of Fea.

Hi! I am a tween and the daughter of Shari the Delighted Reader. I am almost worse than my mother in reading. I carry at least two books with me at all times. Unfortunately, I don't like ebooks, preferring to feel the book in my hands. All of my reviews will be of Young Adult books.

    Love it when a story gets right to it too. Thanks for sharing!

  • This one sounds good. I think Lena seems complicated but that is always a good thing in a character. Thanks for sharing.
