"Tis a story of two fated lovers who were separated at birth to keep them apart--or rather, one seventeen year old human and a 200 year old Fae... Would fate interfere?
Of course, the meeting between the two main characters is quite unique. What would you think about somebody coming to your door, entering, and declaring he was going to kill you? If you're this reader, you are instantly sitting up, alert... and expectant! And I definitely was right--I loved this story even if it is a YA novel! What we have is a contemporary YA romantic drama that pits a 17-year-old female again a 200-year-old assassin.
The assassin quickly declares his intention and adds that he is here because she is human and all humans are enemies. Quickly I must explain that said human had been placed in various homes when her parents were both killed. None of them were a good experience and she'd been on the street for much of her life. She's smart, sassy, and is up-to-date on all the street talk and slang... Quite a change of pace for the fair assassin. And it was delightful reading as she was constantly stopped and ask to explain what she meant... I loved the unique blend of past and present where, no matter what, lovers will find each other...
You see, both of them were immediately attracted to each other. But the assassin didn't know what to do with his thoughts and feelings. What he did not feel was a desire to continue with his assignment!
If you notice that I haven't provided the names of these two main characters, it is simply because they didn't give them. The assassin finally succumbed and said she could call him Master. Well, this young teen was not into that...until he finally said would Your Majesty was an option...Yikes!
Actually, Crysta had known she was different since she was young. But her desire to hit in was most important...one of the things she did was get rid of her long pointed ears. Still her hair was white, so she constantly colored it. And, of course, used make up to change her basic skin tones. One thing she could not change was that she was very beautiful...
And that's why her assassin stared, causing the confusion and decision not to murder her. After all, some mistake had to have been made...so he would stay with her until he could find out who had "put a hit" on her... Yes, he planned to move into her apartment... But once they got through that battle with Crystal acquiescing, he took her hand to guide her...and refused to let go...LOL This book is soooo much fun!
There was no doubt they were falling for each other! But when another assassin popped in to find out what had happened, he saw immediately that they surely were fated! And they would know for sure if... or... when... they kissed... Of course, I had to imagine what they might look like then! For those of you into the fairy scene, Crystal was a winter fairy, while the assassin was a summer...the meantime, Crysta still considered herself a human and was willing to interact and get to know him while he investigated but she made it clear she had a plan for her life and one of them was to become a prima ballerina... So here's only a hint of what happened...
This is such a lovely story. This is my first time reading the author, but by the way she began her story, immediately pulled me into the lives of her main character, I was hooked from the first to last page. It certainly had to be added as a personal favorite for me! Anaya says her fantasy books is added with a contemporary edge. And she pulls it off very well! Fantasy lovers of Fairy/Fae characters might think of it as a must-read. But it is definitely highly recommended.
What I love about this book...
-No love triangle.
What I'm hoping for in the next book...
-Meet more characters (good/bad guys).
-See the Fae realm (seelie/unseelie court).
-Crysta growing stronger with her power.
-More backstory on Crysta's past.
-More of Jareth wooing Crysta.
-Crysta making new friends or a best friend.
Overall, I love this book! I would highly recommend for those who loves Fae/Fey/fairies. This book is similar to The Iron King by Julia Kagawa and The Gifted Thief by Helen Harper.
I actually thought it would start at a different point in Crysta's story than it did but from the first couple paragraphs I was hooked. As readers, we're introduced to the two main characters, Crysta and Jareth(anyone else instantly think Labyrinth like me????) right away. Sometimes it takes reading several pages into a story to get the feel for the characters. For me I instantly liked them, especially Crysta, and I felt that opening was a great foundation for their development individually and as a couple.
There's a mystery surrounding Crysta and she has struggled her whole life to fit in. I really liked her character's personality. You get a pretty good understanding of what her life was like growing up in the first little bit of this novella and let's just say it wasn't pretty or easy but very lonely. Yet I loved the resilience of her character and her ability to adapt and find something she loved and aim for achieving it regardless of the struggles.
Jareth has some mystery surrounding him(which is all revealed in time) and I'm not going to say anything about that, I'll let you enjoy the unraveling of that mystery as you read. I will say that the sparks and chemistry between him and Crysta creates pure fireworks!
Danger, mystery, hidden identity, assassins, knock you to your socks reveals(at least for Crysta), sparks, great wit, strength, Ihop (let you figure that one out too), white, infinity, ballet, stalkers, and so much more inside this little novella.
Content: a couple mild swear words scattered throughout, talk about stalkers, reference to some attacks(sexual and nonsexual) but nothing explained or graphic you just know that they almost happened. A couple mild innuendos. Overall I would say it's a clean read and would recommend for older YA readers.
If you haven't read any books by this author, I highly recommend any of them. I especially loved her The Healer series. The first book is free here on Amazon or the box set of the first 3 books is $1.99. One of my favorite YA Fantasy series!
