I'm Ivy Lane, and if I never see another faerie again, it'll be too soon.
Twenty years after the faeries came and destroyed the world as we knew it, I use my specialist skills to keep rogue faeries in line and ensure humans and their magically gifted neighbors can coexist (relatively) peacefully.
Nobody knows those skills came from the darkest corner of Faerie itself.
When a human child disappears, replaced with a faerie changeling, I have to choose between taking the safe road or exposing my own history with the faeries to the seductively dangerous head of the Mage Lords. He's the exact kind of distraction I don't need, but it's work with him or lose my chance to save the victims. It'll take all my skills to catch the kidnappers and stop Faerie's dark denizens overrunning the city - but if the faerie lords find out about the magic I stole last time I went into their realm, running won't save me this time.

I really enjoyed this book! It was light, fun, easy to follow. The characters were likable and interesting. I was very captivated by the story and everything that was going on. It kept my interest through the Conclusion.
Ivy has secrets that she doesn't want getting out. Even her best friend Isabel doesn't know everything about her. A dangerous and attractive Mage Lord is getting too close for comfort. She tries to put him off but he leaves her no choice but to work with him to solve a disappearance case she is working on.
The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life. I'm looking forward to the next book. Talented writer & narrator!

The plot was o.k but there was very little character development or world building. It would be a great book if a little more time was put in to exploring the different charaters, their history and how and why the world is the way it is. Also, given the first person perspective, I felt their wasn't enough interaction between the characters for me to really get to know them and feel invested in any of them. Overall I felt like there was lots of action happening but not a lot depth to the motivations behind it. I wouldn't use a credit on it but it wasn't bad as a $1.99 added narration with Kindle.
Both the book and the narrator are awesome! Not your average fairy story and leaves you wanting more
"I enjoyed it."
I enjoyed this first book. it has great potential but I do like more information about the world I'm trying to escape to. the narrator was well spoken and but her voice has a child like sound to it. she still did a great job though.

I really like the narrator. She uses a light english accent and portrays an independent young woman very well. Some of her other characters that stood out included the rude Lord Ivanter in ch8 and the old woman in ch 11.
Warning that there is some cussing from ivy (f word in ch 11 when she's frustrated, f word ch 14 yelling at fire imps, a few more). I would have preferred the story without it, but it fits the character when she's emotional.
Story wise, I thought it was interesting when Ivy makes the transition from referring to the man from Lord Cultan to Vance to show a closer emotional bond. I thought it was done a little early though. (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is a prime example when it's done well, from calling him Junior to Indiana at the end). I think Ivy was too stubborn, taking her independence too far. I think some of the writing could have been a little smoother, but otherwise I enjoyed reading the story.
"Not for me"
This story might have potential but I couldn't get in to it. It just didn't appeal to me.
I gave up. Call me picky but when I listen to an audiobook the narration is almost more important then the book.
i received this book free of charge for an honest review, what can i say a Fae story now and then never hurts especially when it can keep your attention.
maybe the splintered series by A.G. Howard
