Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.
Another fey story.
Errmmm, well, there was nothing wrong with this book. It was written well, there was lots going on, you understood what was happening. Except that I got bored. I have realised I do not really enjoy Faerie stories. The world of the fey always seems so dark. Personally I like it when I feel happy after I finish a book. Sad maybe because I didn’t want it to end. But happy at how the story was told, how it made me feel, how it ended.
All the faery stories I have read have not made me feel like that. So I have come to the conclusion I personally do not enjoy stories about faeries. The fey world is just too crazy, complex and dark. The fey themselves are crazy, complex and very dark. Even the nice natured fey, still a dark side to them. That is the fey.
But putting my personal feelings aside, this book was a good book. The story was well thought out. I just probably won’t be reading the next books in the series.
