Elizabeth Tanner is no Tinkerbell, and her life is no fairy tale. Broke and drowning in student loans, the one thing she wants more than anything is a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation. But after the ancient Irish text she’s studying turns out to be more than just a book, she becomes their prisoner instead. And when Trinity reveals Elizabeth is half-Fae, she finds herself at the center of a plot to save the magical races of Ireland from a brutal civil war.
As Commander of Trinity’s elite warriors, Finn O’Connell isn’t used to having his authority challenged. He doesn’t know whether to punish or protect the infuriating young woman in his custody. When he discovers the Dark Fae want to use Elizabeth’s abilities to control the source of all power in the universe, he’ll risk everything to help her.
At the mercy of Trinity and enslaved to the Dark Fae, Elizabeth finds herself alone on the wrong side of an Irish myth thousands of years in the making. Refusing to be a pawn in their game, Elizabeth has to fight her way back to the man she loves, but to do so, she must wage her own war against the magic that binds her.
I’m really torn on how to rate this book. When I usually finish a book I know exactly how many stars it deserves. When I finished this book I had no fucking clue how to rate it.
In the end though I give it 2.5 Stars.
The blurb was good and it makes you want to read the book BUT…….
In some places just fell flat for me. The first third was good the middle dragged on a bit, okay a lot. And the ending was a cliffhanger in regards to Finn and Elizabeth and there was just too much back and forth in this book between the MC.
Overall plot and story where good I just felt that some things could have been different. Not everybody was at everyone’s throat. Elizabeth is strong but equally parts annoying and likeable. Well, to me anyway.
I think Finn was bi-polar and had torn loyalties. Please don’t let this put you off reading this book though as this is just my opinion.
Don’t get me wrong I want to read the next book.
