Just One Taste Is All It Takes...
This is no ordinary mirror. Caspian caught a hint of color, a whirl of a waltz just past his reflection—a glimpse into the decadent Fairy Court of Annwyn. The home he could never have. It called to him, whispering temptation after temptation...if he could only reclaim his rightful heritage.
To Be Forever Lost...
Caspian has an even stronger reason to stay in the world of humans. He's just met a woman who captivates him like no other. But loving him has proven to be dangerous. And he will do whatever it takes to protect Lydia from the vicious, seductive world of Court—even if doing so requires the ultimate sacrifice: his soul.


My Review:

Beginning Babble: I loved Shona Husk's Goblin series so very much. So when I saw that she was publishing a fairy series, I basically jumped for joy. I love fairies. As far as paranormal creatures go, they are second only to shapeshifters in awesomeness.


Heroine: Lydia-She was very buttoned up. Not stuffy but very reserved. I guess that works for me because I can identify with that. It did make it a bit difficult to get to know her. I did really like her when she busted out of her shell a little.

Hero: Caspian-His powers were awesome. Being able to see the history in every house, every antique is the superpower I would want. He was also a good guy. He was smart and protective if a bit on the broken side.

Chemistry: Very good. Perhaps not the most electric chemistry I have ever come across but good enough that I will follow the rest of the series.

Chemistry Rating:

Ending Babble: The world building, as with Husk's previous series, was absolutely excellent. It was detailed and it was interesting. I really can't wait for the next book in this series because I love the world that Husk created. I am not really the type to get too involved in the worldbuilding aspect of fantasy romance—the historical romance reader in me just won't let me---but with this one I was basically enthralled.
