Goodreads Synopsis:

The reals of faery is breached and for the first time, Celeste comes face to face with a human. He strikes her as an extraordinary specimen and although they have yet to speak, her heart is racing. But Paloma, Celeste's mother, is on her deathbed and before she breathes her last, the gruesome circumstances of Celeste's birth are revealed, thus establishing the reasons why Celeste must leave the realm - her home. Grieving for her other and dreading her inevitable entry unto the world she know is led by a woman bent on destroying her, Celeste yearns for one more glimpse of that handsome stranger.

Displeased with Celeste's foolish longings, Nahia, Celeste's birth sister, reminds her of a certain arrangement, also disclosed by Paloma, which means that when Celeste reenters the human world she views as contemptible, she will do so as the bride of a complete stranger.

Celeste has never been one to shirk or delay, but she won't allow her romantic hopes to be dashed. She is compelled to fulfill the promise made to her dying mother, and she must satisfy Nahia, but above all, she must be free to give her heart to whomever she pleases.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I absolutely love reading books about the fae. The fantasy that surrounds these types of stories really make me happy. I cannot wait to jump into this one and see where it takes me. Who knows, maybe it will be my next favorite book. I am really excited!

Thank you so much to Wildbound PR for sending me a copy of this book! I am so grateful! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing was good but I also felt like it was too over descriptive. It was a little too heavy and distracted the reader from what was actually going on because their mind was trying to envision this world created by the author. There was too little dialogue to lighten the load of the descriptions which added to the heavy toll on the reader and even when there was dialogue, it was a bit awkward sounding. It sounded elevated but then again it tied in with the time period, I ended up having mixed feelings about.

Plot Thoughts:

Although it was predictable in some cases, it was a lot of fun to read. It took me way back to when I first started reading fantasy. It was nice and simple. There wasn't a million twists and odd turns that didn't make sense. I found myself really enjoying the story as it progressed. It was a very nostalgic feeling. 

Character Thoughts:

There wasn't anything that stood out for me about these characters but they felt like the classic characters you would read about when you were younger. They had a familiar feel to them and whilst they weren't the type of characters that stood out and out shone every other character you have ever read about, they are a set of characters that made you feel at home.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I enjoyed the story. I wasn't the biggest fan of the writing but the plot and characters definitely made up for it. This is a book that I would read if I was just sort of getting into fantasy and wanted something a little bit more on the classic side. The plot although predictable in some cases, was highly enjoyable and had its brilliant moments. The characters were classic and felt like coming home. It is definitely a story that I will read again. Thank you so much to Wildbound PR for sending me a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,

Melleny
