“I shouldn’t have to tell you this isn’t a fairy story…”
After her parents’ car crash ten years before, Amie Wentworth trusts books more than people. She may be a writer, but she believes in reality over fiction. She ignores the unexplained mysteries surrounding her, never mind the dreams of a past life, or the fact she can fry technology with a touch. Not even a timely invitation from her long-lost uncle in England gives Amie incentive for anything other than ire.
Until she is stabbed in an alley and brought back to life by a handsome stranger. Soon Amie is dragged into the very sort of tale she is used to selling. To make matters worse, the man who saved her life keeps turning up and her would-be-murderer is still at large.
After crossing the Atlantic to her father’s homeland, she discovers a world beyond imagining. Silver Hollow is a place of ancient traditions and supernatural dangers, where everything is the opposite of what it seems and few escape sane. Faced with an impossible choice, Amie is forced to confront a deadly family legacy while remembering a life she soon wishes to forget.
**Previously published in 2012. This NEW EDITION has been FULLY REVISED AND EXPANDED. The original novel is now no longer available.**
Jennifer Silverwood was raised deep in the heart of Texas and has been spinning yarns a mile high since childhood. In her spare time, she reads and writes and tries to sustain her wanderlust, whether it’s the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, the highlands of Ecuador, or a road trip to the next town. Always on the lookout for her next adventure, in print or reality, she dreams of one day proving to the masses that everything really is better in Texas. She is the author of three series–Heaven’s Edge, Wylder Tales and the Borderlands Saga–and the stand-alone titles Stay and She Walks in Moonlight. She released her first serialized Urban Fantasy, Angel Blue in August 2018.
I was very intrigued when I got the email about this book and was drawn to it! I mean come on, who wouldn’t love that cover? It’s absolutely gorgeous! This book for me was definitely all about that dress! I think I might even have drooled a little bit! I also love the castle in the background. I love old buildings and again, I’m drawn to them, the older, the better.
This tale starts in Texas with Amie losing her parents 10 years in the past. We then jump forward to present time and it’s just action, magic and just everything you would want from a fantasy book.
I obviously won’t go into too much detail but I love Amie, she becomes this whole new woman when she comes into her power and she’s quite the bad ass! I also loved Arthur, Amie’s Grandfather. He didn’t want to hide anything from Amie and he did everything he possibly could to help her in her journey of self discovery.
I am definitely looking forward to book 2. If it’s anything like this one then I won’t be able to put it down! I’m also hoping the cover is just as beautiful!
