“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.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I was so excited to read this story. The story line grabbed my attention immediately and made me want to read it. I had to know just what this “world” was about.
All in all, this was a really good story. It held my attention for the most part and made me want to keep reading. The characters were interesting to say the least and each had their own quirks. They were funny and made me laugh at times and serious at other times. They developed relationships with one another that are no different than relationships you and I have and hold dear to us.
The communication barrier, or difference, was hard for me. I had a really hard time understanding what was going on and was being said. I had to go back and re-read certain parts to try to fully understand. I think that goes for the actions as well the further you get into the book. I think maybe had there been slightly better detail and descriptions it would have been clearer for me. That’s my only negative for this story.
I found myself talking about the book at work and how excited I was to read the story and trying to explain what was going on. I applaud the author on a story well written overall. I enjoyed reading it and enjoyed my time escaping reality! I would recommend the book for sure.
