Here you see how truly different the Fairy Realm is from the Human. Fairies are separated by class and houses. Elders of the house get to choose whom you should marry mainly to ensure that the houses remain powerful and blood lines remain pure.
Meet Tristan, his family and house were prosecuted and or fled when the Revolution attempt by Eero was unsuccessful in the first book Fairyproof. He is now consisted an traitor. Some say tainted because of his family. He just wants to make changes to the Fairy Realm, so fairies will not continue to flee for the human world and cause them to go into extinction. The only way to get chance to make changes is by being appointed a seat on the Council.
Quinn would give anything for Tristan to be her mate. However, her grandfather and Elder of their house will not have it. He believes like so many of the elders that change is not needed. He wants the open seat on the Council to ensure that no changes are made to their way of life.
Problem is Quinn wants change. She wants a chance to be with Tristan. Can they survive together in the Fairy Realm or will they be forced to flee to the human world like so many others.
It all comes down to the vote.
It is a short story about Tristan Ipsly and Quinn Vettore. Tristan and Quinn love each other. But nothing is the same in the fairy realm after Eero's failed revolution. Can they overcome all the obstacles in their path and be together?
I really enjoyed this book and I think you will too! I look forward to reading more of this series.
In the fairy plane of existence, society is segregated by class and family, or "house," reminiscent of ancient Rome or old England. Their world follows laws and traditions set out in the Canon, and enforced by a supreme Council, with representative members from the major houses. In FAIRYPROOF, we learned that not all fairies are happy with this archaic arrangement, longing for more freedom to make their own life choices.
Tristan Ipsly is from the disgraced house that spawned the villainous Eero, but he chose to stay in the fairy realm while the rest of his family either fled or faced prosecution for fomenting revolution. Tristan is a healer and scientist, in charge of the Repopulation Project, which is trying to figure out an answer for the dwindling fairy population.
His even bigger problem? Trying to figure out a way he can ask the lovely Quinn Vettore out on a date, when her grandfather hates Tristan and looks down on his traitorous house. To complicate matters further, Tristan and Edwin Vettore are now rivals for the vacant seat on the Council.
The point of view switches back and forth between Tristan and Quinn, so we are able to see both sides of their longing for one another, as well as Quinn's supreme frustration with the narrow scope of her personal freedom as a female, and the lack of choices she is allowed to make for herself.
Ms. Phillips does a wonderful job of creating characters you really want to root for, and storylines that suck you right in and don't let go until you reach the end. I loved catching up with the familiar characters from FAIRYPROOF, and seeing how their stories are progressing. My only complaint was that this was over far too quickly! I'm looking forward to another full-length story from Ms. Phillips - hopefully soon!
