Everyone knows the epic love story of Captain’s Guard, Edward de Vere, and the Sapphire Queen of the Fae, Catherine. But for three hours every night Avriel, a double agent in both the human and fae courts, remembers events differently, where Edward is her lover and the world is different. When Avriel realizes that a powerful spell has enveloped both kingdoms and possibly altered reality, what reality will she choose to follow and what destruction will she bring with that choice?
VERDICT While the story takes place in a fantasy setting, the focus is squarely on the romance between Avriel and Edward, with an enticing “will they, won’t they, are they?” element that enhances the intriguing mystery of what is actually real in this world. The additional twists and turns Speer (The Chocolatier’s Ghost) adds to the plot are numerous and will keep the reader constantly guessing, but everything is brought to a polished conclusion at the end. A solid, enjoyable pleasure read blending romance and mystery with a dash of the fantastical, that will entice readers across multiple genres.
