About the Book

Lady Fenella, ever surrounded by guards, knows only responsibility and duty. She believes Merlin and the Lady of the Lake are myths, Gran’s warnings about Fairy are superstition, and Fairy was invented to make children behave.

But then Gran brands her, Lord Argonshire kidnaps her, and the Lady of the Lake makes her a pawn. The Highland heiress must betray her newly betrothed and fend for herself when she dives into a wormhole to save her cousin. She lands in a part of Fairy even fairies avoid, and joins forces with Talfryn, a half-Viking/half-Fairy.

Fenella must use her wits to find her cousin, free the Lady of the Lake, and reach the wormhole in Glastonbury by Beltane. Nine days to unshackle herself from a sorceress, prevent a war between rival clans, and decide in which realm—and with which lad—she truly belongs. Oh, and The Most Powerful Wizard stands in her way.

The Review  ★★★☆☆

I really liked the opening of this book with a bit of the Merlin mythology, to me it held that air of promise that there was so much more to come with this book.

Let me simplify the review for you… it was a fun and exciting adventure.

Fenella’s life is one day changed when she is kidnapped by the Blackwoods for an arranged marriage to the third son. She tries to stay true to the promise while in captivity but everything changes when she goes down a fairy wormhole when chasing after her cousin.  And even though she is afraid of this new world filled with magical creatures she never thought existed she gathers her courage and continues on to find her cousin Sorley who seems to have gotten lost.

I didn’t full connect with this book, maybe it was the English used by the author, it threw me off quite a bit but I guess once you get passed that you can enjoy the story. The author did  great job with the magical world building and a lot of history and a huge chunk of information to support the story.

This book is packed with so many layers and the way it all comes together was just totally awesome.
