However, Shade believes she is only merely human, not half Fae, but it doesn’t stop her from trying to help this race of people that she would gladly call her friends. She embarks on this dangerous quest across the faerie lands in hopes to bring back a magical water to save the people. During this time she must leave behind those she loves, her normal life she had before meeting the faeries, and even possibly knowing that she may never return the same way as she left. Shade may not even return at all! But she refuses to let any of this stand in her way, so the young seventeen year old Shade starts her journey to self discovery, to save both the faerie world and hers too, and the quest of friendship everlasting. Read this story if you love the idea of faeries. Read this story if you love page turning, spell flinging, sword fighting action. Read this story just to fall in love with a girl who would sacrifice her life to restore the peace and love we all seek in the world. This story blends in the world of the Fae, but doesn’t hype it up to perfection. I love this! Not all Fae are good, not all are evil, and some are a mix of both. The world is created wonderfully and has a lovely balance. The writing style flows easily as it sucks you in for more and more. I was actually only disappointed in the fact that the second book won’t be out until December 2012. I was so in love with this story that I wanted to find and read the next book right away. I would recommend this story to a wide range of readers. I think anyone from the age of 13 to 100 could find this to be a very entertaining story. I think girls and women might relate more, but younger boys and men might really enjoy the sense of adventure found in the storyline.
