Magic still lingers in the mist-covered corners of the world, wherever the Old Ways are remembered. However, as civilization and reason scoff at the Fair Folk, the paths to power have been forgotten by all but a few.

Lily Boyd was meant to become a faerie doctor, a warden of humans and a keeper of balance, until disbelief and pragmatism led her away from the hidden world and into a mundane life. But truth has a way to be Heard and she will be forced to face it if she wants to save her family.

Armed with nothing but her childhood memories and protected by a debt of gratitude she doesn’t understand, Lily must decide who to trust while she navigates a world that is darker and more twisted than she is prepared for. 

And should she make the wrong choice, should she mistake friend and foe… the eternal balance between the Faerie Courts may shatter, and then there will be more than Lily’s life on the line.


I was given a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is as confusing as it is interesting.

The plot was pretty much all about finding the grandma of Lily who was a doctor for fairies. She gets help from a kelpie (a water spirit of Scottish folklore, typically taking the form of a horse, reputed to delight in the drowning of travelers --> from Google). Their camaraderie is actually good, even though their team up isn't the best because Lily speaks like a normal person and the kelpie, Troy, speaks in a riddles and in very, very formal yet confusing manner. They argue lots as expected, but they also become more like necessary friends. The problem is, she gives away her name freely to the said kelpie, so he could practically make her do anything for the entirety of the book. It's annoying. She forges on and she does many things wherein I want to shout at her because she was being kind of stupid.

Hmm, if you ask me if there's a love story somewhere in this boo? I don't think so. I can't see them being in a relationship in the next book. It'll just be oh so weird. -__- Even though they may be kind of attracted to one another. LOL.

The battles are actually good here. The author has a talent with describing things and making it seem real in my head. Their adventures from one place to another is also good. I just really have a problem with the amount of dialogues in this book. I felt dizzy reading between the lines when they talk. The mysteries also kept piling, but when one is solved, another crops up and then it goes on and on... and then bam! cliffhanger! Oh my, I think this book just really wasn't for me.

I enjoyed it, but I also kind of hated how it ended... so where does that leave me?
