READ THE BOOK, THE FAERY SAYS!
Ms. Hudson writes a fantastic debut novel of forbidden love that is not only intriguing in that aspect but add in the thrills, chills and things that go bump in the night and it becomes a page turner that is difficult to put down. Her character and situational descriptions are incredibly relatable and sharp; I found myself crying at some parts of the book, trying not to skim paragraphs so that I could hurry up and find out what was going to happen-yes, it was that thrilling in some parts and rooting for Amelia and Joshua throughout the whole book. Don’t mistake me, Ms. Hudson found time to put some humor in there that had me snickering pretty loudly!
I would and have, highly recommend this book to all my friends.
