Genre: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Fae, Young Adult
The Land of Faerie is calling.

Don’t resist. It’s in the blood…
Evangeline is a short story prequel to Ever Shade.
Flower Rating: 4.5 Flowers
I loved this book. I really liked the sisters, whose relationship was well done and seemed like real sisters. Some books don’t paint a genuine picture, where you just want to poke someone in the eye. I also enjoyed the paranormal element. I am a huge Fae fan and I think that this book was a great set up for the Dark Fairy Tale Series. I love the introduction into Faery and the magic found there. It is a compelling and beautiful world, frot with love, danger, beauty and even violence. I would hate to give away too much but love’s outcome can be sad but opens doors to greater things.
