MY NAME IS MEGHAN CHASE.
In less than twenty-four hours, I’ll be sixteen. Countless stories, songs and poems have been written about this wonderful age, when a girl finds true love and the stars shine for her and the handsome prince carries her off into the sunset.
I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE THAT WAY FOR ME.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan Chase’s life, ever since her father disappeard when she was six. Ten years later, when her little brother also goes missing, Meghan learns the truth—she is the secret daughter of a mythical faery king and a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she loves, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
I’ve seen this series pop up over the last few years and every time it does, it’s always positive. Evidently though it’s the 10th anniversary year and so it’s been popping up an extra lot. I went back and re-read the synopsis the other day and was like “huh ho! If this doesn’t look like something I should have read ages ago!”..and so it was, it was instantly added to my Want to Read shelf and I hope to tackle it by the end of the year. Um, enemies to lovers, bristly fae princes, girls with a serious mission, mysterious daddy who is an actual king? Yeah. I’m ready.
