17 year-old Kelly Winslow doesn’t believe in Faeries. Not unless they’re the kind that you find in a theatre, spouting Shakespeare—the kind that Kelley so desperately wishes she could be: onstage, under lights, with a pair of sparkly wings strapped to her shoulders. But as the understudy in a two-bit, hopelessly off-off-Broadway production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, wishing is probably the closest she’s going to get to becoming a Faerie Queen. At least, that’s what she thinks... In this fun, urban fantasy, Kelly's off-stage life suddenly becomes as complicated as one of Shakespeare’s plot twists when a nighttime trip to Central Park holds more than meets the mortal eye.
I love it.
There are many twists and turns and sub plots and some mysteries you don't find answers to, even after the sequel. Lesley incorporated the modern world with classic fae we all know from Shakespeare. In a way, it was like The Iron King, but beyond the faerie and the myths, they're totally different stories.
Sonny is adorable and I kind of love him. He had the perfect balance of bad ass and sweet. He was kind of sort of perfection, without being a Gary Stu.
I don't know how to go into further detail without any spoilers for anything. But I really loved this book and I'm happy to know there's only one more left in the series coming later this year!
