A fairytale, but not the kind your mother used to read you!


Rhiannon Kinsley's life goes from boring to downright crazy when a freak lightning bolt strikes her laptop. To make matters even more bizarre, strange words and symbols flash across the computer screen and she hears a mysterious voice. Time to call the men in white coats! Then Cerne Silverwing, an intriguingly sexy man, appears. He insists she’s a faerie princess whose fate will determine his own. What a crock! Now she knows who really needs those white coats.

With the Dark Faerie forces threatening his kingdom, Cerne kidnaps Rhiannon and brings her to Fey, a land where magic knows no bounds. He's performing a duty to save his kingdom and nothing more—a duty that will bring him his wings and the strengthened magic that comes with them. If he doesn’t unite with the princess as her consort, those wings will never grow. But this princess grew up in the land of laptops and instant messages, and she’s convinced they're both crazy. Despite their differences, the two are thrust together to defeat the whip-wielding Dark Faerie Queen before she takes over the kingdom. Passion and peril aside, will Rhiannon and Cerne discover their true destiny?


Ms. Skye gives us a new and interesting twist to the land of the Fae, and indeed Faeries themselves. With the dark forces of Lilith approaching the White Faerie Lands quickly, the White Faeries need their princess. Rhiannon thinks they are all crazy, especially Cerne.

Cerne can’t convince Rhiannon that she is Faerie quick enough so he kidnaps her and takes her to where she was born. He hopes that this is a faster way of getting her to recognize that she isn’t really human.Together, both Cerne and Rhiannon burn up the pages. Their attraction to one another is instant, and their love develops as a believable progression of throughout the book. The story itself takes a journey that is beyond just the two main-characters, and the secondary characters are also well developed and add to the storyline.

I had a little trouble following when the story jumped from one place to another, but not so much it detracted from my pleasure of reading. I would put a Siren Call out to all others to read this enchanting look at the Realm of Faerie.
