Rating: You want to read
Reviewer: Nerine Dorman
Raven, daughter of the king of the fairies, knows pursuing a relationship with Michael, a mortal, might get complicated, but she takes the chance because he has fairie blood and she can’t deny the connection she feels. She doesn’t count on accidentally ‘turning’ him just as they are falling in love. Her actions cause him to question their relationship while he deals with his sudden conversion to a full-blooded fairie, along with all its implications.
Raven must now convince him their love is worth fighting for before the fairie council calls her to decide her fate for breaking one of her people’s most sacred laws. Even if she cannot prove her innocence to the council, she is determined to show Michael how powerful their love is, because she knows she could face even the harshest punishment as long as he is by her side.
This story is a treat to read, moving quickly through this tale of burgeoning love. I’m very glad my family isn’t as meddlesome as Raven’s however. With everyone knowing everyone else’s business in the Fairie realm, it proves to be particularly daunting for poor Michael who gets thrown into the deep end when he’s accidentally turned. With a looming council meeting to investigate his turning, he has to adapt to his new powers and come to terms with his feeling for the new woman in his life. Although Raven doesn’t regret Michael being fairie, she does feel bad for not being prepared for her slip-up.
At times I did feel a bit breathless, getting the run-down on Raven’s family and felt that I wanted more from the plot but overall, this was a good read and Susan’s solid writing kept my interest in the unfolding tale as well as enjoying the characters’ quirks. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for future offerings from Susan.
