When I saw this in my school library, I don't know why, but I just had to have it. I think part of me went, oh look at that pretty cover! but another part of me really wanted it for some reason, and yesterday, when I was browsing through my old posts I came across it in one of my wishlists posts! I am glad to say that this book didn't disappoint. I loved it!
I loved the storyline, characters, the writing style, just everything!
The storyline included faeries and I was actually quite excited about that part, since I'd never read a novel with faeries in it, and what the synopsis states is true, faeries are not what you think they are going to be in this novel!
The characters are well written and play great parts in the story, but my favourites probably have to be Laurel (the main character) and Tamani. Laurel had just the right personality and I really liked her from the start. She's brave, loyal and a faery! I do not really want to go into much detail about Tamani, because if I do I will probably reveal spoilers.



I give this 5/5 because I just found it a great read. I really, really, really hope you will read this, I would say it is a must! I'm actually going to order the sequels, that is how good it is!
