MY REVIEW-5 STARS
Nineteen year-old Alina has just been fired from her internship as a reporter. On the train station, she meets Sovereign, a rockstar fae who is being chased by the Fae Authority and she helps him get away. She plans to make him her next big story so she can get back to being a reporter. Things only get weirder because spiders seem to follow her and tell her that the queen of the fae has summoned her, but why? With Reign constantly saving her from the weird things happening, Alina starts to fall for him despite his arrogance. But is Alina really who she thinks she is? Why does the queen want her? And will a simple quest to get her break out story turn into something deeper than she ever thought?
So i'm just gonna explain the world building a bit. So basically it's set in London where the fae and human live together. However, the fae live underground and can have their roaming rights revoked if they feed on the life force of humans-they need that to survive. Humans have like an automatic essence refill whereas the fae don't so they have to take it from humans. But if they do, their 'roaming rights' that is being able to live on the surface alongside humans is revoked. And when they do touch humans to get the life force, the humans can get addicted to them so London basically lives under a main rule-Don't touch the fae and don't fall in love with them. Of course there wouldn't be a story if Alina followed these rules! So Sovereign(the name!!!) is a fae superstar!!
I LOVE THIS BOOK!! I mean come on, how can you go wrong with an awesome heroine, toxic touch, an arrogant superstar fae and a fae queen with ulterior motives? For all those who love Kat and Daemon from Obsidian this pair is JUST LIKE THEM!! They fight, they have sizzling chemistry and Alina is a funny smart mouth! I really did not expect the twists in this book!! They just kept coming and coming and i kept wondering, is this it? Is Alina finally gone forever????
Oh and by the way any thoughts on this GORGEOUS cover!!!!?
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED GUYS!!Get it ASAP!! I can't wait till the next book-i'm just so excited i can't even stay still!
