***CHECK OUT JOLANTHE ALEKSANDER! I DID!!***
Things are not always simple or what they seem.
Daria McClaren is content. She has her dance school, her cousin Celine and the man of her dreams. Literally.
Iauron is uneasy. As the High King of the Fae, his chosen Queen Verisiel is calling to him, but he cannot find her. The court insists that she has crossed over. He is not so sure that is the case. He has searched every realm looking. Every realm, but the human one.
The race is on. Beyond the veil lie truths waiting to be revealed. Which one will have the courage to look? Will they be in time?
Very promising beginning to a new series! This is a story where the Fae Queen is missing but is found in the human realm. She is no longer in fae form but reincarnated as a human. The Fae King finds her and is hell bent on making her remember her past life so she can be the queen she once was. The story starts with Daria, a young woman who is still trying to find herself, when she “runs into” Ian, a very hot client. A very fast and hot relationship starts and then the rollercoaster begins. You are thrown in the passion that Ian feels and the issues he has trying to get Daria to remember….while trying to make Daria believe that she loved him once. There is a traitor amongst the Fae and this traitor is the reason the queen is a human now. The king is faced with finding and dealing with this traitor and making his queen remember. It is quite the story!
“Day and night cling to each other like lovers torn apart. The few moments they are allowed to exist in the same time and space is brief and fleeting, and loathe though they are to leave each other, they paint the sky in beautiful colors as remembrance of their love for one another. And, during the day, the world is such a busy place that when dusk finally does arrive, it feels as if the world finally gives itself permission to take a deep breath and relax.”
“It was beautiful. She couldn’t deny it. It was also a cage. ‘A beautiful cage of snow and ice that is preventing me from returning home.’”
I absolutely recommend this book. The reason for giving it 3 3/4 stars is that some parts of this story are very rushed and at times I was left needing more. Nothing from the main story is missing but there are some side notes that could have been drawn out more and the story jumps around a bit. This is very promising and it is left with a cliffhanger. I am anxious to continue the Fae King and Queen’s story.
Jolanthe is a Marine Corps Brat and proud of it. The nomadic life of the military helped develop her love of reading and books became her friend.
A dancer, Jolanthe appeared in several productions in high school and later in the area theatres. She gave up her role of dancer/actress for her greatest role to date, that of Mother to a son who reminds her every day to find joy in the simplest of things and to use her imagination.
Missing the stage, and at the prompting of some on-line friends, Jolanthe gave rp-ing with an internet group a try. There she found and developed her skill as a writer.
When not working, writing, or keeping up with her son, Jolanthe can be found scouring antique shops, used bookstores, and of course, reading.
