What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

They think capturing me will help them win the war.
But they just made the biggest mistake of their lives.

As a summer fae princess and chief enforcer for the Mage Police, it’s my job to stop shifters dead in their tracks—emphasis on the dead part. And if one criminal slips through my fingers while I bag another, well, that’s not a good enough reason to demote me—in my opinion.

Determined to prove myself to the mages, I go after the worst criminal out there: The Shadow. But when that mission gets blown all to hell, I find myself a captive of three shifter warlords.

Being their prisoner shows me all about the darker side of the war. But the thing is… I’m not afraid of the dark.

Thoughts on Fae Captive

4.5 rounded up

From the blurb and cover, I thought this would be just an ok read – but it shocked the heck out of me by being a GREAT READ!

Honestly, there is so much going on, but it flows naturally from one scene to the next while still allowing the characters some room to grow. I’m a little unclear about the world building, but that seems almost a background aspect to the drama that infuses the main narrative.

It’s exciting, hot and surprisingly emotional.

My Final Verdict on Fae Captive

I actually liked this novel a lot more than I thought I would. It flowed well, entrapped me quickly and encouraged me to pick up book 2 right away – everything that you want in a Paranormal Romance.
