Okay so can I say that I absolutely loved this book and I need book two right away. I have a slight confession to make I really do not read books about fairies. I am not sure why I don't like most books but when I try and read them I can't stay focused enough to continue to read them. But this world that Julia and Talia have created drew me in right from the start. I mean the descriptions are so freaking fantastic that I was drawn right from the beginning. Plus there is so much going on for the main character that there is never ever a dull moment.
Rylie has a normal life with the best parents and her best friend Sierra and a wonderful boyfriend Adam. Rylie couldn't ask for more out of life but before she turns sixteen her world is about to turn upside down. She will find out some shocking news that will effect not only her parents but her friends and her boyfriend. Out of no where a strange women named Azura comes to Rylie and tells her she is faery and that she is her biological mother. At first Rylie is in shock because she has lived a normal life for so long and she can't understand why this woman would come out and say these things to her. Why is she being so cruel? But Rylie and her family hear out Azura secret and what they learn has rocked their worlds to the core.
Rylie realizes on her sixteenth birthday that Azura was telling the truth because she has grown wings and has pointy ears. She also feels something building inside her and she is not sure what it is but she is afraid. Then to make matters worse she is kidnapped by the dark faery Varwick and brought back to his home. She is then told she will marry his son Kallan. When Rylie meets Kallan she is not sure what to make of him but she is afraid because she loves Adam and wants to spend the rest of her life with him. She wants no one else but the more she gets to know Kallan she starts to develop feelings for him. Then Kallan and Rylie find out what his father is up to and the two of them will have to figure out what to do.
What will happen to Rylie? Who will she chose to be with? Will it be her true love Adam or will it be Kallan?
