The Faerie Path
Anita is on the verge of turning sixteen, and her life couldn’t be any better. She has wonderful parents and friends, she has the lead in the school play, and she has caught the eye of the new boy Evan. On the day before her birthday Evan takes Anita out for a surprise, but the evening lands the two in the hospital. They both seem fine, but Evan has yet to wake up from the trauma. Anita on the other hand is having wonderful dreams of growing wings and flying out windows and receiving wonderful but mysterious gifts! She is visited by a young man in one of her “dreams” and is transported to the world of Faerie. Anita comes to realize that she isn’t dreaming at all. She is actually in the land of the Faerie and she is the long lost princess Tania. The man of her dream is faerie lord Gabriel Drake whom she was to marry before she disappeared into the moral world a mere 500 years ago. And that her boyfriend Evan is really Gabriel’s servant, Edric. In the sting of Edric’s betrayal Anita/Tania turns to Gabriel for comfort, but does he truly love her or is he after nothing but her power.
I really liked this book, I won’t say that I loved it but I did enjoy reading it. It is also the first in a series and from experience it seems that they get better as they go along, so I am hoping that I will enjoy The Lost Queen and The Sorcerer King even more. I felt sorry for Anita’s character, she really wanted to belong to the Faerie world, but I understood how she just couldn’t let go of everything that she knew. Some of the characters at times were a little transparent it wasn’t too hard to figure out who the bad guys were. Even so, if you like the fantasy genre I don’t think you will be disappointed with this book.
