Calista is the eldest princess of the summer court and Ryder is the eldest prince of the winter court. They first meet on Calista's twenty first birthday, the day she receives her guardian, and, not to sound cliche, sparks fly. For the two have been bound by a prophecy that ties them to the land of fae and to each other. However in true fairytale fashion there is an evil sorcerer, competition for Calista's hand, traitors, and help in the most unexpected places.
One thing you should know about me, I have a slight obsession with fairies or fae depending on which term you prefer. So books that have them tend to become instant favorites so if you'll forgive my partial bias I shall continue with the review.
This was an extremely well written, descriptive story, one that pulls you right in. The characters are engaging and diverse, all the archetypes you'd expect in a fairytale and more. The plot is suspenseful and moves along quickly. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
