"Meghan Chase has a secret destiny--one she could never have imagined...Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school...or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face...and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart."--p.[4] of cover.

Cliche and juvenile... *sigh* What else is there to say?

This book, is like my favorite!! I couldn't get bored of this book, even though I reread it almost 6 times!! 😆

I was recommended this book from goodreads and basically the minute I started reading this book I fell in love with it. Now I'm waiting for the next book. This book would be amazing for YA Readers and this has a unique plot that will make readers crave for more. Wonderfully written and I Ship Ash And Meghan 😭

Very good series with a unique setting that I thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely a series for young teenagers though. Trying to recommend the books to my friends had futile results because trying to explain a book about Faeries doesn't exactly have the desired impact ;) otherwise I would definitely tell you to give it a try, who knows, you may just love the romance and have a minor crush on Ash. Not that I do.

A familiar character changing names partway through was the biggest thing that caught me up. I love the story and the romance. The world she created was marvelous and imaginative! I can't wait to see what the sequel will bring!

It was pretty good - almost a bit too teenager-ish for me, though, but I guess that IS the target audience. She has very interesting ideas of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts. I would recommend this to any teenagers that are interested in fairy tales. Also, it was suspenseful which made me want to keep reading. I'm not sure if I'll read the rest of the series, though. It just looks like it's going to turn into one big love triangle.

teenage harlequin romance novel worthy of the title and predicated on price of environmental wastefulness

I absolutely love this book. One giant adventure!

Okay so, I really liked this book, though a times it was very, very confusing. I just can't wrap my mind around the way some of the characters speak and act. But once you take the time to truly understand the book, it's not that bad! though I think it's terrible that the book leaves you with a cliff hanger ending. Overall, it was a good book, not my favourite, but still worth a try.

I loved this book! It started a bit slowly but once it really got going I couldn't put it down. This is your typically fantasy story with some romance, comedy and, of course, faeries. The ending left me itching to get my hands on the second book.

Puck stepped forward. "Ladies and felines," he stated grandly, grasping the doorknob, "welcome to Ti Na Nog. Land of endless winter and shitloads of snow."

  • Mahala rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

image On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, Meghan Chase is confronted with a scene straight out of Pet Cemetery when she and her mother are attacked by her four year old brother. Her best friend Robbie (aka the famous Puck) saves her and reveals that her brother has been switched with a faery changeling and the only way to get him back is to find the kidnapper in the Nevernever (aka faeryland).

The world of the faery is as terrifying as it is beautiful. In her quest, Meghan is nearly eaten several times, ripped apart by trolls, drowned by nixies, impaled by a prince, raped by a herd of satyrs, and boiled by Goblins. And that's not even half of it. There is nothing sweet and gentle about the fey in this book.

Meghan has always felt that she didn't quite fit in. But she could always rely on her best friend, Robbie, for a smile and her little brother, Ethan, for a hug. On her 16th birthday, Meghan's world is shaken to the core when Ethan is kidnapped and she finds out that Robbie is not what he appears to be. Determined to rescue Ethan, Meghan enters the faery realm where the Summer and Winter fey are eternally at odds. Meghan becomes a pawn in their deadly game and knows she cannot trust anyone. Even so, she needs help to battle her way across the Nevernever in search of Ethan and must decide whether the gorgeous but dangerous Winter prince can be trusted. When a cruel and twisted power threatens to destroy all of Nevernever, will Meghan find her brother before it’s too late?
