"a charming adult fairy tale"
Five newborn babes, cursed by the wicked Hepra; she
bestows the evil magic of the Unfaeful so that her legacy
may live on. The malevolent force lies dormant in the
innocent hosts, waiting to come of age...
Lee Harrison needs a job, yesterday. She is trying to make
it on her own after a hurtful divorce but the situation is
getting desperate. When she is about to give up hope, she
receives an offer from the Fae-Makeup company. Whisked away
on a private jet, Lee believes her troubles are over; but
all is not as it appears.
Philet is assigned to escort Lee, one of the humans cursed
by Hepra, back to the realm of the Faeful. The Faeful must
work to stop the malevolent Unfaeful magic in Lee from
growing stronger. Meaning just to tell her like it is and
turn Lee over to Ely, Faeful elder and head of 'Faeful
United Creation Keepers' (an interesting acronym here),
Philet is forced to make a life altering decision when
Unfaeful magic threatens to immerge. Will the fire of their
passion be enough to defeat Hepra's evil legacy?
FAEFUL: SEXUAL MAGIC is the first single title from new
author Skylar Sinclair. Ms. Sinclair has written a magical
fairy tale with beautiful imagery, intriguing characters,
and enough heat to singe your ebook reader. The fairy story
is effectively woven, giving readers enough history for
acceptance but leaving a bit untold to provide a mystique
to the motives for some. The plot effectively puts the
characters in an emotional situation where decisions are
forced and feelings are exposed.
As much as the setting and plot move the action forward, it
is the depth of characterization that truly makes this
special. Lee is a vulnerable, sensitive heroine that
her innocence in spite of being badly hurt in a past
relationship; though she is no push over. She is
and refuses to be forced by anyone. Philet is...an enigma.
Though he is strong, possessive, and protective; typical
alpha traits, he is at the same time sensitive, loving, and
unshakable in his devotion. Very different from the usual
hero, he has captured this reader's heart.
This reviewer has to mention the cover art for this book;
is simply fantastic and captures the mood of the story
perfectly. This is a charming adult fairy tale that whisks
the reader away to a fantasy world that captures the heart
and imagination. There are four other stories to be told in
this series, and this reviewer hopes that Ms. Sinclair is
busy crafting their magical tales as we speak. It goes to
show, fairytales can come true; FAEFUL: SEXUAL MAGIC is
simply that, magic.
