Description

A Houston college student, McKenzie Lewis can track fae by reading the shadows they leave behind. For years she has been working for the fae King, tracking rebels who would claim the Realm. Her job isn't her only secret. She's in love with Kyol, the King's sword-master-but human and fae relationships are forbidden. When McKenzie is captured by Aren, the fierce rebel leader, she learns that not everything is as she thought. And McKenzie must decide who to trust and where she stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 12, 2011 – In talented newcomer Williams s fantasy debut, 26-year-old Houston college student McKenzie Lewis finds her studies interrupted yet again when war escalates in Faerie and its king demands she use her mystic gift for tracking the rebels through the magical fissures they use to travel between lands and worlds. Kidnapped by the rebels, McKenzie is torn between their arguments and her loyalty to the faerie king as well as between her illicit romance with the king s swordmaster, Kyol, and the feelings stirred by the handsome rebel leader Aren. Williams portrays a realistically shaded faerie realm in economic and magical turmoil compounded by human technology and the atrocities committed by both sides in a brutal civil war. The only hiccup is an angst-filled love triangle that distracts from the action and narrowly avoids a descent into pure soap opera.

Customer Reviews

Interesting take on Fae, but reads very YA

This book was an interesting interpretation of Fae lore, but i had several issues getting through the first book. The first is that the reader is dropped into the middle of the story, years into on-going relationships. The second was the awkward vocabulary used to explain the paranormal aspects of the story. The third was that it read very young although the heroine is in her mid twenties, similar to Julie katana! but without the edge. As a dedicated fan of Seanan McGuire, Jim Butcher, Laurell K. Hamilton, and Karen Marie Moning, the Fae world in offering needed more definition and edge. Will give the second one a try and see how it goes.
