The witch's redemption...
Kelyn Saint-Pierre always had a bit of a thing for Valor Hearst. But after he makes a harrowing sacrifice to save the tomboyish witch from a gruesome death, Kelyn's certain that any spark between them is gone forever.
Valor wishes she'd known about Kelyn's crush before she ruined everything. There may be a way she can repay her smoking-hot champion...but it won't be easy. Circling the globe on a dangerous mission that pits them against deadly magics and dark creatures, Kelyn and Valor are pushed scorchingly close together. But surrendering to passion may only further bind them in pain...
Valor is a witch and is trying to do a spell in an enchanted forest to make herself more lovable. Unfortunately she’s caught by one of the enchanted trees and is slowly being sucked into the ground. The only way to free her is to have someone in Faery push her out from the other side. Too bad she doesn’t know anyone who can actually get into Faery.
Kelyn Saint-Pierre is part Faery but has never been able to get into Faery. He would love nothing more but it’s not in the cards. When he comes across Valor he wants to help her and the only way to do that is to sacrifice his wings to a demon who has agreed to help.
Once Valor is free she knows she has to get Kelyn’s wings back and goes about trying to find a spell that will open a portal to Faery for them. Kelyn’s up for it and the two set off on a grand but scary adventure that brings to two closer together then either thought possible.
I really liked the premise of this book and it was set up nicely to start. I instantly felt the connection between Valor and Kelyn and was rooting for them throughout the book. The things they went through, for the most part, were pretty harrowing and I admired their determination.
There were a couple of parts in the book that I thought were superfluous but maybe that was just me. I didn’t care for Kelyn’s attitude once they were in Faery and the fact that Valor forgave him so quickly once he apologized kind of bugged me. I wanted him to grovel more because he’d been an ass.
Despite that I liked the book and thought it was a fun read.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
