Summary from Goodreads: SOME LEGENDS ARE BETTER LEFT UNTOLD.
I wasn’t the sort of girl who believed in fairytales, let alone tales about faeries. But that changed the day Faeries came to my small town and Hunters rose from their graves.
On that fateful day, I received a book, a peculiar collection of myths and legends. Turns out it was so much more than stories. And just as I was on the verge of unlocking its secrets, it was stolen from me by someone I called a friend.
Now, I don’t know whom I can turn to, whom I can trust. All I know is that there are two sides, and I am straddling the great divide because I am both Faerie and Hunter. And although I swore I would never choose, I am slowly falling for one of those sides…
Fans of Karen Marie Moning's Fever series will adore Wildenstein's Lost Clan series.
Review: The whole concept for this book was great. I really enjoyed how the world came to life around me and the fantasy elements that were intertwined. The characters seemed to interact well with each other, and made me feel attached. The one thing that seemed to wear on me was how all over the place I felt the story was. There wasn't one story line I could follow. They all seemed to run together and became boring to me in parts. Even though I was having trouble following the story, I still really enjoyed the book.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
