For seventeen years, Eloise Hart had no idea the world of Faery even existed. Now she has been abducted and trapped in the Rath of Lord Strahan, King of Faery. Strahan was only meant to rule for seven years, as Faery tradition dictates, and then give up his crown to another. But he won't comply, and now chaos threatens both worlds.

The only one who can break his stranglehold on the Faery court is his wife. . . Eloise's aunt Antonia. Using Eloise to lure Antonia, Strahan captures his wife, desperate to end the only threat to his reign. Now Eloise must become the rescuer. Together with her best friends Jo and Devin, she must forge alliances with other Fae, including a gorgeous protector named Lucas, and Strahan's mysterious son, Eldric-who may or may not betray them.


My Review: Only took a few pages to get me hooked. Once I was, I just flew threw the pages. I love Harveys books. I haven't read one that was less than perfect, from her. She is an author to watch.

So Eloise has a pretty simple life. Cool style, good mom, tattoo, and just a normal teen life. Well at least she thought it was normal. Things were going just fine until a guy shows up, makes the crows go away and give her a necklace. Then her mom mentions that something is happening. Then she gets kidnapped by the fae. Normal just went out the window. 


So now El is under the hill and is trying to figure things out. She needs to find out more about the fae, why they have her, and about her aunt. And maybe plan an escape. Meanwhile, Jo is trying to figure things out. When she doesn't get very far, she goes to Els mum. 

Soon the pace picks up even more and I just had to finish the book. Els aunt shows up and sends El home and she just shows up on her couch. So now El and Lucas are in Els home. El explains things to her mom and her mom explains everything else. 

The entire story was just amazing. I love the characters, the details, the overall story. Harvey is such a great writer and I have loved every book she has written so far!
