When sixteen-year-old Lee Capren is spirited away to Faerie, she is forced to serve capricious faeries as a prized portrait artist… and live as their prisoner.At first I wasn’t so sure about this book and then I was hooked. Kaye Thornbrugh completely reeled me in with the setting of this novel that I had to keep reading to see what happened. The thought of a parallel world of faeries and other magical creatures to ours might seem farfetched to some people but to me not so much, I mean how else am I to explain the fact that I can put 10 pairs of socks in the dryer but only 9 come out.
A chance encounter with the charming Nasser grants Lee a chance for freedom—but what felt like mere days in Faerie spanned years in the human world, and Lee no longer has a home to return to.
Nasser is a Seer—a human with magical powers—and Lee is quickly plunged into his world: a sprawling city teeming with magic and mystery, where supernatural creatures walk hidden among humans. With the help of a rag-tag group of teenage Seers, Lee must master her newfound magical talent and outwit a cunning faerie determined to destroy her.
You’ve heard the saying “actions speak louder than words” well in relationship between Lee and Nasser flowers speak louder than words. If any of you are in a relationship and reading this review I highly encourage you to read this book and then go buy flowers for that special someone in your life. If you don’t have anyone special in your life then I will gladly accept any flowers that come to my door.
The central characters in this book are so interesting and I began wanting more of a back story to each one. I really wouldn’t mind if Thornbrugh decided to turn this into series I think there are many places it could go.
This book was a good read and I think should be added to your TBR piles.
