Short Synopsis from Smashwords: Teague’s was the charmed life of a popular athlete that came to a crashing halt. Cailin is a pixi learning the price of nonconformity in her rigid clan. She fears the darkness. He is trapped there for all eternity. But when the two of them are thrown together, they begin to discover the light within themselves.
Review: After a shaky first two chapters, this book really took off and surpassed my expectations. The character development was wonderful, the plot was well-thought out. The entire story was well-writen and I fell in love with the characters.
The author makes the characters believable and I empathized with them. Teague was a young man with some major problems, but after meeting the spunky little Cailin, he was able to navigate those troubled waters with better resolve. The interaction between the humans and the pixis was well-written with some natural biases on the pixis part.
Overall, the author did a very good job with this book, and I hope to see a good continuation of this world.
