“Her identity is secret. Her destiny is incredible.
Tressa is a fae in hiding. Unable to fulfill her transcendent role in an ancient prophecy, she hides on her grandmother’s estate in the Pocono Mountains. Tressa is content to work in her small shop and fake her humanity, but she knew she couldn’t stay hidden forever.
When she uses her powers to protect a friend, strange things begin to happen all around her. The Unseelie are nearby, the enemy of Tressa’s people, and they’re coming for her. As the dark fae come closer, Tressa must use the powers she’s hidden for so long to keep the people she loves alive.”
I received this eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Tressa is hiding from the Unseelie Court who want her dead because of a prophesy of her people naming her one of the King’s Jewel. Previous King’s Jewels did not survive the Unseelie Court, thus her identity must remain hidden.
When Sophia and her handsome father Xander walk into her store, and surprisingly, into her life, she sacrifices her identity to protect those she loves dearest. Although, Sophia has some interesting talents that make her able to see Tressa for what she is.
This is a great tale, especially with the mixing of Celtic folklore, Sidhe folklore and several biblical references. It was especially interesting that the Sidhe, when they die, they go to purgatory and await the prophesy to be filled.
I definitely recommend this to those who are looking for and enjoy an adult faery tale.
