Visiting Faythander is a nasty business. Forget the fairies and unicorns, most people come back with lost memories and mental problems. Olive Kennedy knows. She's the therapist who treats patients suffering from Faythander's side effects. Despite her empty bank account, she takes pride in her job as Houston’s only Fairy World medical doctor. She's never failed to cure a client—until now.
Traveling back to Faythander wasn't on Olive's to-do list. But she has no choice. The fate of both Earth and Fairy depends on her ability to stop an ancient being called the Dreamthief. To complicate matters, she may be losing her heart to someone who can’t love her in return. Saving the world, she can handle. Falling in love—not so much.
As if battling the forces of evil wasn't difficult enough…
I loved this book. I cannot stress that enough. It took me a while to get to this one because I was in one of my reading funks where nothing was appealing to me. Then I read someone else's review and decided I had to get started on this one.
This book was fantastic! The characters and just everything about Faythander were well described and made me want to be a character in the book so I could explore this alternate dimension.
I have to say I liked Olive and Kull, which is odd because I almost always hate one of the two main protagonists. Speaking of hate, I didn't care for Olive's mom or Brent. They're not supportive of her life choices, and it seems like they team up behind Olive's back to try to get her to do things their way. Not cool, guys, not cool.
The guilty parties were not people I expected to be guilty. Sure one of them was acting really shady at times, but I didn't really expect them to be guilty. Although they didn't mean to do what they did.
This is a great start to what can be a long series (I'm hoping it's a long series...) and I definitely cannot wait to get my hands on the second installment. 5 Platypires!
