Alicia's always known she's different--that she can recognize the mischievous fae when they show up to "play" with the humans. Only now she's faced with one highly annoyed dark fae and she's certain he knows the truth about her. She can see him, which means her life is forfeit.
Add to that, his sister arrives, who wants to play, too. And their mother, the queen of the Denkar, will want Alicia's head, once she learns what Alicia can do.
And all because Alicia was attempting to rescue her friend, Cassie, on their beach excursion at South Padre Island, from the wicked fae. Now, Alicia has really gone and done it--and she's thinking she should have let the fae have his fun. Her friend's broken heart would be a lot easier to deal with, than Alicia losing her life.
But it is too late for regrets. As soon as she threw the soda at the dark fae's chest, she had declared war on the fae. And he is happy to take up the challenge.
When I picked this book up I was expecting a very deep faerie book. What I got was the exact opposite. This book was a really light read, the characters where very likable, the plot was quick and fun , and the writing style was good.
The plot in this book was really fast paced, there was never a dull moment, and I finished it the some day I started it
However, there was a huge plot hole in this book. So, let me get this straight, Alicia was taught since birth that if the Fae knows she can see them then they will kill her, but then when she finally encounters a Fae, she can't even pretend that she can't see them. You would think after 17 years of being taught that they will KILL you, that you would at least be able to pretend that you can't see them a little bit better.
Another thing that really annoyed me was that Alicia talked like she was in the 1700's and I hate it when authors do that.
One more thing, the relationship between Deveron and Alicia felt really thrown in there and fake.
All in all, this was a really fun read, but you can't really get serious with it. So, this is a summery kind of book.
This book gets...
Basic, nothing special.
That is my review, I hope you liked it.
