Sometimes you find home, sometimes it comes looking for you.

Callie knows a lot more about pain than she does about family. She’s never belonged, at least, not until she falls through a portal into her true home. The beautiful faerie city of Eirensae doesn’t come free. Callie must find her amulet and bind herself to the city, and most importantly, avoid the Fallen fae who seek her life. Seems like a small price to pay for the family she’s always wanted.

Then she meets cynical and gorgeous Rowan, who reads the darkness of her past in her eyes. He becomes Callie’s part-time protector and full-time pain in the ass. He has secrets of his own for Callie to unravel. What they don’t know is that the future of Eirensae lies with them, and the once peaceful city is about to become a battleground for power.


My Review: Callie is a normal girl who doesn't really belong. Then suddenly she falls through a portal, where her life is changed. She finds this new world, a world where she does belong. Finds out she has these hidden powers. 

But it all comes with a price.  First getting this amulet that binds her to this world. Working on her powers, avoiding the fallen fae, and dealing with Rowan. 

I enjoyed Callie during the whole story. It was the other characters I was a little ify on and then slowly warmed up to them. There are more characters to love than hate in this book, which was a good change for me. Most of the time I tend to like just the main characters more and not much of the secondary ones. 

The story was paced well and picked up at the perfect moment. I couldn't put the book down and can't wait to get my hands on the next book!
