Cheshya is about to celebrate her birthday. At the age of two thousand she will be permanently on the shelf, by law she cannot marry after this birthday. She will then begin her life working for Queen Merci on the Queen's quest. Bringing the stray Fae happiness and having them return from the human realm. She had no idea her first quest would be to see the only man she ever loved, happy. On earth as a baseball player. Not her husband. Will this daughter of Mr & Mrs Claus be having a happy Christmas birthday this year?
This was a fairly quick read but a complete story. Great story line as well.
Cheshya's heart has yearned for Liam of the Red Clan over five hundred years now. Her live has been a close and personal secret the entire time. No one, not even her best friend, Princess Kaylee, knows of it. The chances of Liam falling in love with Cheshya and marrying her within the next four days are between slim and none. Liam is not even in Faeryshire. For the last five years Liam has been living among the humans in Terra Humanus. So Cheshya asks Queen Merci to go ahead and designate a task for her.
Cheshya's mission is to find unhappy faeries who are living in Terra Humanus and help each fulfill their heart's desire. (The queen hopes the faeries will return to Faeryshire once they have succeeded in doing whatever they wanted in the human realm.) Cheshya's first mission is none other than Liam!
The year in Terra Humanus is 1956. Liam pitches for the Shoreline Sharks baseball team. He is obsessed with signing as a major league pitcher with the Cincinnati Reds and his chance is but a few days away. Faeries competing for a career with humans are not allowed to use faery magic because it would give them an unfair advantage. So when Cheshya arrives, Liam is happy for the help, even though she cannot use her magic to assist him. Liam finds himself attracted to Cheshya, but should he act on the attraction, Liam may lose the major league career he has worked long and hard for.
***** FOUR AND A HALF STARS! Princess Kaylee may very well be the most sly and cunning faery that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Throughout this tale I kept glimpsing hints that Kaylee knew more than those around her believed. Kaylee's subtle manipulations prove her worthy of her royal faery bloodline. I sincerely hope to read future stories involving Princess Kaylee. Faeryshire and the faeries within it are as addictive as fine chocolate. This title is a novella, instead of a full length novel. Therefore, you can enjoy Cheshya's holiday adventure for a very low price. (Consider that to be smooth and creamy icing to dip the chocolate in.)
Faeries have super long lives, so the author can choose any human-time frame as a setting. For Cheshya, the human year is 1956. I found myself treated to the era's snazziest cars, amusing phrases, odd clothing fashions, and upbeat music. All-in-all, a grand story that will keep you royally entertained. *****
