Synopsis from Goodreads:

Superstar gamer Spark Jaxley's life might look easy, but she's part of an elite few who guard a shocking secret; the Realm of Faerie exists, and its dark magic is desperate for a foothold in the mortal world.

Aran Cole hacks code and sells his gaming cheats on the black market. It's barely a living, and one he's not proud of. But when he turns his skills to unlocking the secrets behind Feyland—the most exciting and immersive game on the market—he discovers power and magic beyond his wildest dreams.

Spark's mission is clear; pull Aran from the clutches of the fey folk and restore the balance between the worlds. But can she risk her life for someone who refuses to be rescued?

My Review:

I was so glad to re-join Sharp in Feyland for more adventures. The Feyguard series picks up right where the Feyland trilogy leaves off but takes you so much further into this remarkable world. She takes off with this tale using the same well written and approachable style that we’ve come to know and love. Her descriptions are extremely vivid, allowing you and inviting you into her fabulous world. As a reader you are completely immersed in the world of gaming (I’m not a gamer at all, and I could easily follow along) as well as the Fey court.

Although I truly enjoyed reconnecting with Spark and the other Feyland characters in this novel, I absolutely fell in love with Aran, a new character in this novel. He is the perfect counterpoint to Spark. Both their similarities and differences shine through to make quite the show as they get to know one another. In fact, all of the major characters in this novel are quite well developed.

I loved this novel as much, if not more, than Sharp’s previous novels. I can’t wait to read more about this wonderful world.
