Book Description: A love more powerful than magic or time.
Beverly Bratton has a safe, mundane life. No drama. No magic. Since her parents died, she’s cared for her little sister Marion and worked at the Tragic Fall Inn. When a fairy’s charm sends Beverly a hundred years into the past-and into the path of a banished fairy prince-nothing will ever be mundane or safe again.
The regent of the Dumnos fae is turning the court from light to dark, and there’s nothing the rightful king, Prince Dandelion, can do about it. The mystical coronation cup which he needs to become king has fallen into human hands. When he meets a human woman with access to the cup, everything changes. Beverly is fascinating as well as useful-but of course Dandelion doesn’t love her.
Love for a fairy is rare. Love with a human, impossible. But when Beverly and Dandelion are thrown together in a battle against both wyrd and fae, they learn that in Dumnos the impossible happens every day.
My Thoughts: This is the second book in the series. While I was able to read and follow along, I think that I missed some information that would have been helpful to me from the first. That being said, this book shows a side of the fae that is whimsical and political.
The book begins with Beverly and her sister surviving a car accident that killed their parents. There are aspects of the accident that deal with the fae and the details are left a little fuzzy. There is a reason for this.
Once again, I haven't finished the book. The past couple of weeks have been very crazy for me and I have had a hard time finding the time to sit and read without my children fighting or going to one of their games. I apologize. I sincerely hope that things will settle down for me soon. Only a few more weeks of kids football games!
I can say that what I did read was entertaining. I cannot give any content warnings, because I didn't read all of it. I can say that I believe this is an adult book.
I liked the way in which the fae are portrayed. It is more to what I think they are. Whimsical on the outside and conniving on the inside. Thanks to Promotional Book Tours and LK Rigel for giving me the opportunity to read the book. I will be finishing it and posting completed reviews at Goodreads, LibraryThing and Amazon. You can check there for the final word of my thoughts.
