She vowed she’d never return to Faerie…But vows were made to be broken.

As a human girl, Chloe is perfectly happy being back in the mortal realm where she belongs. She’s even become the town apothecary. When a fae from her past shows up begging her to return to Faerie, she utterly refuses.

But then she finds out an angry group of mortals are using iron to hold an entire castle full of fae hostage. And of course, the hostages include Chloe’s older sister and her sister’s beloved.

Reluctantly, Chloe packs a bag for what is supposed to be a short trip to Faerie.

But the mortals are more powerful than she expected. To fuel them, they have weapons, flames, and revenge. They won’t stop until they control every court in Faerie.With the help of a new and mysterious magic and a too-handsome-for-his-own-good fae companion, Chloe has to save Faerie before her sister and the other fae are killed.

Exclusive Hardcover Edition!

The hardcover edition has a very special “naked hardcover” (under the dust jacket design) that features an illustration of the two main characters. The hardcover edition also has a bonus chapter from the love interest’s perspective!

My Review:
4/5 ⭐️
I really enjoyed the world building with this one. I was originally sucked in by the cover & synopsis but wow!! This book was so good. Chloe’s determination and kickass female vibes had me falling in love from page one!! Check out my Instagram for an International giveaway!

I did a mini photoshoot with the book! These are two of my fave photos, which one do you think I chose for my Instagram post?
