A Fae that kicks butt??? Yes please!!!


She couldn’t escape, even in death.

Cold. Stiff. Buried beneath the ground for decay. How do you comprehend waking up after being dead? For Dakini, that is a reality. Her last memory is of her land being destroyed as she meets her demise.

Something or someone brought her back. But why? The world she remembered is gone. The last thing she wants to do is face her killer again. Blending in seems to be her best option. Until she comes face to face with the true hell her people are experiencing under the new leadership.

Sold into the kingdom of dragon shifters, she chooses to compete in Ruination, a set of death duals, in order to gain her freedom. She must face her challenges head on if she wants to take her land back from those that ended her life.

Can she become the High Fae her people need?

This book was packed full of drama, a little romance, and a whole lot of action/fighting. I have to say it has been a while since I read a book such as this one. I get giddy like a little girl when I read anything Fae.

Desolation is part of a book set that was release on July 10 ( yes, that recent). Shades of Fae is a box set that is available on Amazon for .99. Yes! You have read that right! .99.

Chasing the Light by Sherry Hutchison

Chasing the Light by Sherry Hutchison is a book that you can recommend to your child who loves to read. The story consisted of a little girl, the neighbor boy, fairies, and a troll. If your tween loves fantasy books, this is the book for them. It does not matter if your child is a boy or girl because there is a lot of adventure, some violence (PG type violence), and another world.


CT is a very smart young lady with a vivid imagination. But it’s never led her to the kind of trouble she’s found this summer. This past summer everything has changed and her life will never be the same. Ever since her dad mysteriously left her and her mom, and they moved to a new neighborhood. CT has been seeing strange little flying lights out in the forest behind her house. She resolves herself to follow them after they appear to turn into tiny little flying people. She’ll have to learn the value of trust and friendship as she allows a boy to share her secrets. Secrets about a mysterious world that only they know about. Why have they been chosen? And what does CT’s beautiful red hair have to do with all this mystery? “All of a sudden here was a loud crash and a huge roar that started the calm night, Just like that the spell CT was under was broken, as the frightened fairies forgot the game they were playing. They dropped her and scattered in fear, leaving her in total darkness deep within the forest below. CT landed with a soft thud on the cold damp ground, hitting her forehead on a big tree trunk. She was disoriented and confused as she felt something wet and sticky trickling down her face. The scream froze in her throat as CT now knew great fear for the first time in her young life, as the spell the fairies had her under, was broken.”

The fairies were described as tiny and beautiful. I love anything fairies. I collect fairies whether they are figurines, cups, and books. I recommended the book to my daughter who would fit this age frame for the story.
