"I shouldn't have to tell you this isn't a fairy story..."

After her parents' car crash ten years before, Amie Wentworth trusts books more than people. She may be a writer, but she believes in reality over fiction. She ignores the unexplained mysteries surrounding her, never mind the dreams of a past life, or the fact she can fry technology with a touch. Not even a timely invitation from her long-lost uncle in England gives Amie incentive for anything other than ire.

Until she is stabbed in an alley and brought back to life by a handsome stranger. Soon Amie is dragged into the very sort of tale she is used to selling. To make matters worse, the man who saved her life keeps turning up and her would-be-murderer is still at large.

After crossing the Atlantic to her father’s homeland, she discovers a world beyond imagining. Silver Hollow is a place of ancient traditions and supernatural dangers, where everything is the opposite of what it seems and few escape sane. Faced with an impossible choice, Amie is forced to confront a deadly family legacy while remembering a life she soon wishes to forget.

**Previously published in 2012. This NEW EDITION has been FULLY REVISED AND EXPANDED. The original novel is now no longer available.**

My thoughts:  When I picked up this book, I thought it would be a typical fantasy book.  I was wrong.  Jennifer Silverwood has created a book that has familiar elements but incorporates other stories into hers.

Amie is a  woman who has faced many tragedies.  She lost her parents at eighteen and her saving grace has been her best friends who watch out for her.  Soon, the friends cannot do anything to save her from the danger that awaits her on the other side of the "veil" where she discovers her true heritage.

I mentioned that this book incorporates elements that I wasn't expecting.  Amie becomes a part of the Seelie and Unseelie world.  She has magic that has been hidden from her.  This is a book where she uncovers one piece at a time her past and her heritage.  There are also ancient tales that become part of her story.  I was happy and surprised to find Arthur and Merlin as part of her story. (I grew up loving that story.)

This book is full of intrigue, war between ancient legends, romance, and non-graphic violence.  There are fade to black scenes of intimacy.
