Poppy, a young female Warrior Faery from the Unseelie Court is sent out to retrieve Halflings from the human world to help build her Kings army. A seasoned warrior, she sets out on what should be a routine exercise, but not this mission. Suddenly the portals between worlds are shut down, leaving her trapped in the dreadful human world. Now Poppy must work alongside the despised Halfling to find her way home and avoid being killed by the assassin that is now stalking her. During their journey, Poppy will discover that everything she has been taught has not necessarily been the truth and she will be forced to make decisions that she never dreamed she would be faced with.
This is the first book in a three book series by Riana Lucas. This book is 156 pages long.
Poppy, a young warrior from the Unseelie Court, has never fit in with the cruel race of the Unseelie Faeries. When the King of the Unseelie Fae gives her a very risky and difficult task, Poppy will learn the hard way that she really doesn't fit in with the other Unseelie Fae. Poppy has to go into the Human World using portals that could possibly be controlled by the Seelie Queen. The Halfling she has to fetch seems to have impressing abilities beyond the other Halflings she has retrieved. Throughout Poppy's journey, she gets new feelings she has never felt and is learning to trust this Halfling, Reed. There is another problem aside from the closing portals, there is a Seelie Fae trying to assassinate Poppy. There is a lot that Poppy doesn't know about her past and her new feelings. She always thought the Fae were superior to humans, but now she isn't so sure. What skeletons are hiding in Poppy's closet? Are these new feelings good or bad?
This was a great book and was definitely close to other Fae books I've read. In all the Fae books I've read, there is always a strong heroine that feels different and two courts that she is having trouble trusting. This book added a new twist to Faeries. Kudos to Riana Lucas for creating a spectacular read. I really wanna read the next book. There isn't really anything wrong with this book either, so win win right? I would consider this a book for most ages.
