A captivating and witty dark fantasy that will have girls lusting after it.
Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.
Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.
Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog was one of those addicting books you cannot put down! I love anything in the fairy genre, so I was excited to read Fairy Tale. From page one, the story and characters captivate you and have you so caught up in their world that by the time the real conflict of the story takes place, it pulls you in so much more. It has an ending that will definately surprise and appeal to readers.
The characters were probably my favorite part of Fairy Tale. All of them were powerful, well-rounded characters that just popped off the page. Every single character, even Dawn the “villain” of the novel, had you feeling for them. They all had some aspect you could relate to.
Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog was a fantastic debut novel!
