She meets Dane the Thief and his daughter Rosalee.
Think you have trouble with technology some time? Imagine you were from another reality.
Hilarity, love, loss, and the gift of being different and enjoying it are all embraced in this fast paced colorful story.
A chance for new life and love in a completely different world, that pretty out of this world.
Ciera is a fairy godmother who interacts with humans. That is the fairy godmother mission; it is what they do. But there are lines that can’t be crossed. Ciera loved spending time on Erde, one of three alternative universes: The Fairy Realm, Erde, and Earth. But she was curious about Earth and, even though the human realm was off-limits, Ciera looked forward to new challenges. Granting a wish to a human while she was in a dream state was possible, she knew the man wished for something although the wish wasn’t clear. She touched a finger to each of his hands, a light traveled from the man to her and she felt that his wish had been granted. Thinking back on it, he must have wished for a child. She still didn’t understand her increasingly evident pregnancy, one she tried to hide with glamor spells. Fairy pregnancies had to result from touching all ten fingers. That hadn’t happened in her case, and the result would be a cultural taboo.
There were taboos and almost taboos. In the fairy realm there were red, green and blue fairies. Ciera was a special purple fairy, the only purple fairy, and there was going to be a problem finding a husband. Purple fairies were rare but inter-color reproduction was permitted. Crossing the line to have a human baby was not. She, her father and her family would be in disgrace, possibly banished from the Fairy Realm. The only way to manage this was to admit everything to her father. After she did so, he would come up with a solution. His solution was banishment to the village of Chicago until the birth of the child. The pregnancy would be hidden as far as the Fairy Realm was concerned. After the child’s birth her magic powers would return, she would give the child to the father to raise, per tradition, and she would return home.
But first she would have to survive Chicago, find the father of her child, and give birth. Living on earth was not easy. There was something called money; she had none. There were dog monsters intent on licking and possibly eating her. There was the possibility of dissection. There were no platypus eggs. By chance, she met Dane, an empathetic human who had lost a wife, was raising a daughter, and made his living as a thief. That last did not please Ciera.
This is a delightful fantasy with wonderful descriptions of what happens when reality worlds meet fantasy. It is closer to reality than Alice in Wonderland but there is an absence of drugs. We are not sure if love can conquer all, but we are rooting for it. Readers can decide who were the winners and losers at the unexpected end of this pleasant tale.
Having said that... I really enjoyed Ciera’s story. Yes very reminiscent of Enchanted, but has its own quirks and challenges. In fact I think this one would be a much better film - there’s more layers to the story than simply good and evil and I enjoy Ms Schultz’s wriring style. She built up a character that developed very quickly into someone that intrigued me. I can see this being a longer story arc, but it didn’t feel like an incomplete story which makes a really nice change
Hidden is a short story set in a fantasy and modern setting, perfect for those who enjoy love stories. I would compare this book to the Disney movie Enchanted.
I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
Final Rating: 5 Stars
This was a really nice, fairly short story. The main character, Ciera, was very likeable as she dealt with a world that was unfamiliar. I thought the male lead was interesting all by himself. He had a history and things going on in his life. I also liked that this story is about more than just romance. Love of family is a big theme here.
I hope this story continues. The other worlds described could definitely stand to be further explored. Also, it would be fun to see what the future might hold for these characters.
