Felicity Hawthorne has never been superstitious.
Coming from a long line of Appalachian healers, she’s helped Nan cast grounding spells and left gifts of candy and moonshine for the fair folk, but was any of it real? Not likely.
But when Felicity spots a mysterious boy at school that no one else can see, she begins to question the true origins of her family’s beliefs, as well as her place within it. Could magic really exist? Were all of Nan’s stories true? Were her parents really who they seemed to be? Desperate for answers, Felicity follows the boy deep into the forest to discover a secret world lost to time itself.
Too late, Felicity realizes the truth has consequences, that her search may come with a price she is unwilling to pay.
Lured into a deadly world where blood is more valuable than precious stones, Felicity must call upon the hidden magic inside her if she has any hope of surviving in this dangerous new realm where the supernatural reigns.
My Review: 5 STARS
I picked this up because the cover and blurb intrigued me. I’ve never been one for fae stories and yet as this one dragged me in, I couldn’t help but find myself enjoying and loving the world, the story and everything that went with it. I adored the build up, the pacing, the characters and the story itself engaged me from the first words. The intrigue of the coven, of what that means for all present, and the world building were stunning. I adored the book, and will be looking forward to more in this series. Overall, an amazing read and one I would recommend!
