Synopsis: When sixteen-year-old Lee Capren is spirited away to Faerie, she is forced to serve capricious faeries as a prized portrait artist… and live as their prisoner.
A chance encounter with the charming Nasser grants Lee a chance for freedom—but what felt like mere days in Faerie spanned years in the human world, and Lee no longer has a home to return to.
Nasser is a Seer—a human with magical powers—and Lee is quickly plunged into his world: a sprawling city teeming with magic and mystery, where supernatural creatures walk hidden among humans. With the help of a rag-tag group of teenage Seers, Lee must master her newfound magical talent and outwit a cunning faerie determined to destroy her.
My Review: The cover is absolutely beautiful! It's why I immediately was intrigued, then the blurb.
This book was a little confusing in the beginning. It's written in a 3rd person POV and at first it jumps back and forth between characters before you can manage to get much of a grip on them. I'm not a huge fan of a story written in third person, and to have it confuse me was... well a bit annoying. That little nuisance aside, the story was great. It was very cute and magical with faeries and seers and all those wonderful things. I'm a huge romantic so this book left me longing to see a bigger relationship development between Lee and Nasser, so that's definitely something to look forward to in book two. Thornburgh is great at description, I mean she really takes you there. It's like being transported; your mind flooded by this fantastical place. I think that may have been the best part of all; the way I could imagine everything with clarity, and of course the fey.
