This book follows the story of Chloe, a strong headed and strong even stronger opinionated apothecary who quite literally runs herself ragged trying to place the needs of others before herself. As her mysterious background is revealed, the reader is shown that although she has direct relation to the fae, her thoughts and desires regarding Faerie are quite the opposite. Having quite literally vowed to never return, it is not until a mysterious illness begin sparking up in mortal realm that threatens more than just the people,that Her past comes barging in. Quite literally.
Que Quinton, a brooding fae male who is more mysterious and closed off than Chloe herself. The reader follows along as Chloe desperately grasps for a cure and finds herself back in the one place she never wish to be, doing something she never thought that she’d be doing. The witty banter, storyline, and overall flow of this book makes it very difficult for the reader to put it down. Having finished it in a day, and then being struck by a cliffhanger, it makes for a wicked anticipation lying in wait for the next installment of the series.
As a lover of both fantasy and the fae, this is an easy read that leans toward more traditional lore, and it is lovely seeing the side of apothecary as well and the strain that being a caretaker can have on an individual. Very well written indeed.
