Emily’s world is dull and miserable. Her family seems to hate her, boys seem to find her invisible, and she feels completely alone. When the sweet, shy Oscar joins her in the park she can’t believe her luck. He’s hot, and he likes her. Just as she starts to depend on his calming influence on her life things become complicated. He isn’t what he said he was and he brings a whole heap of danger into her life.
Emily is a full-blooded character. The author has a real gift for making realistic, emotionally authentic characters, and has taken the time to unwind the story, allowing us to fully appreciate what Emily goes through. The reader is inside Emily’s head, feeling what she feels and it makes for a satisfying read. The wintry feel of the setting and the faery boy’s character go hand in hand, creating a romantic and magical story. I can’t wait to read the second book in the series, and I’m looking forward to seeing if the cover is as beautiful as this one, stunning.
