 3 of 5 stars false

A stranger claiming to be her real mother appears with a secret: Rylie is a faery whose powers will be unleashed on her birthday. Captured and forced into a new life, Rylie struggles to keep everything she loves and discovers a terrifying truth: some promises cannot be broken.


**** I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.****

Rylie is a normal fifteen year old girl, a few days before her sixteenth birthday she begins to have really bad headaches. The night before her birthday a woman comes to her house and Rylie finds out that she is a fairy and that the dark faeries want her for the incredible power she will have one she finishes her transformation. Rylie gets kidnapped and taken to the dark fairy land; she is told she must marry Kallan. Rylie loves her boyfriends Adam but she starts to have feelings about Kallan, Rylie has to figure out who she really wants. I liked this book a lot, Rylie is a really good main female character. She makes the best of her situation, without completely accepting it; she still tries to find different ways to get home. Adam was a sweet normal boy, everything a mom wants in her daughters’ boyfriend. Kallan was a bit darker, he seemed like a jerk at first, but once you got to know him he was a really great person. The writing was good and the suspense kept me interested. This book had a lot going for it; I would have given it five stars, except two things really bugged me. One I am pretty burned out on the love triangle, I have read to many books with a love triangle, now every time I read a book with one in it, it automatically makes me cringe. The second problem was the ending, I know this book is supposed to be part of a series, but I it still bugged me that the book left me with a lot of questions. Overall this is a pretty good book; if you like books with fairies and don't mind a love triangle then you will really enjoy these books.
