Back Cover Blurb:
Once a mortal girl, Brea Cairgead discovers her magical heritage and escapes the human world to dwell in the Realm of Faerie. But fate has more in store for Brea than a simple existence as one of the fey folk, and when she runs afoul of the Dark Queen, she must embark on an adventure that will change her future... forever.
Approximately 65 pages. Portions of this story previously appeared in the Shapeshifter Chronicles, the Nightshade Anthology, and Chronicle Worlds: Feyland.
I cannot say just how much I enjoyed this novella. This quick trip back into Feyland was one that I couldn't put down and was sad to see end. I loved how Sharp continued to develop the different types of magic that those from Faerie are able to use and how differently they manifest in each individual. We also get to see parts of Faerie that aren't quite so apparent in the main novels in the series, but that explain a whole lot about the why's and how's of things.
And Brea was a fantastic main character for this novella. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and what it means to be part human and part Faerie. Her personality was so unique that she really drew me in. Her actions and reactions were genuine yet not predictable.
As a whole this was a fantastic read both as part of the Feyguard series and for those new to this world. It's a must read for any and all who enjoy the genre and if you're anything like me it will leave you dying for the next tale.
