Visiting Faythander is a nasty business. Forget the fairies and unicorns, most people come back with lost memories and mental problems. Olive Kennedy knows. She’s the therapist who treats patients suffering from Faythander’s side effects. Despite her empty bank account, she takes pride in her job as Houston’s only Fairy World medical doctor. She’s never failed to cure a client–until now.
Traveling back to Faythander wasn’t on Olive’s to-do list. But she has no choice. The fate of both Earth and Fairy depends on her ability to stop an ancient being called the Dreamthief. To complicate matters, she may be losing her heart to someone who can’t love her in return. Saving the world, she can handle. Falling in love–not so much.
As if battling the forces of evil wasn’t difficult enough…
Olive is a half elf, half human therapist who specializes in helping people cope with the emotional trauma after they travel to Faythander. When she discovers that her own godson is in trouble and fighting for his life, she travels back to magical world and that’s where the web of history, magic, and an array of mythical creatures begins to weave all together in this wonderful fantasy.
From the first few pages I was hooked into the story. Ms. Grantham paints an amazing picture of Faythander, and draws you into the world. Each character is well developed and brings the story to life. The plot twists and turns, leaving you wanting to know what happens next throughout the whole novel and the action keeps you turning pages. There were several nights that I found myself not wanting to put it down, but knowing it was midnight and I’d have to wake up in a few hours forced my hand.
The writing is wonderful and flows nicely without any odd sentences that leave you confused as to what the author is trying to say.
This book has everything in it—fantasy, humor, and romance. Although, the romance is G-rated, which I very much prefer. With that said, however, people who want heat in the books they read, will not be disappointed as the other aspects of the novel far make up for the lack of heated passion.
Since there is another book (and I believe a third coming) in the series, the first one ends on a semi-cliffhanger. This doesn’t mean to say that if you just get this first one you are going to be left hanging or feeling like you’ve been duped into buying another book just to find out what happens. Believe me, you’ll be hunting down Spellweaver (the second books in the series) within seconds of finishing. However, even though it’s a series, this book ends with a ending that leaves you satisfied.
This book is definitely a must read!
