    Once upon a time, a girl named Sophie Drake danced with the fairies in the woods behind her grandparents' Louisiana home. But she closed the door to the fairy world and turned her back on the Fae when they tried to steal her little sister Emily. Fourteen years later, Sophie heads to New York City on a desperate mission. Emily, now an up-and-coming Broadway actress, has gone missing. Only Sophie suspects the Fae. Now Sophie has her work cut out for her.

    Fun and diverting

    Although I feel like this series lacks the charm and magic of Shanna Swendson's Enchanted series, I found the story fun and diverting.

    Sophie Drake has made a promise, and she never breaks her word. She will free Michael Murray's long-lost wife from the fairy realm even if her intensifying feelings for him make it the most painful thing she's ever done. But Sophie is running out of time. Dark fae forces are stirring, threatening the human world. To make matters worse, humans are being cast out of the Realm, whether or not they want to leave, and the shock from these sudden evictions can even prove fatal.

    If you read the first book....

    Just as engaging as the first book! Lots of cliffhangers, twists and turns. If you loved the first book, you'll like this.

    The holiday season in New York City is supposed to be magical, but it's not yet Thanksgiving, and what's happening isn't that kind of magic. The fairy world seems to be bleeding into the human world. Strange white horses carry people into the Central Park lake. Children are disappearing from their beds. Unearthly snow flurries pepper the air while odd pockets of summer appear randomly in Central Park.

    I love this series!

    It's fast becoming one of my favourites. A great story, easy to follow, nice voice and great characters.
