Hooked from the first chapter! No...the first page! The world-building is mind-blowing and the characters have such depth that develops right before your eyes. Magic, tech, monsters, betrayal, revenge..this story is full of action, fast-paced, and has strong male and female characters! ~ Reviewed by Carla Boyle-Wight

Emily Wilde is a shy and awkward professor, and a renowned expert in dryadology (the study of Faerie Folk). In order to complete the last chapter of her comprehensive encyclopaedia of faerie lore, the first ever written, she journeys to a small town in the far north to study the Hidden Ones. While there, she discovers dark fae magic and unexpected friendship, and even love. This is a heart-warming, enchanting fantasy which proves to be a fun escape from the real world. You will not want it to end. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap

By far my favorite of her novels, the writing and the characters sucked me in almost immediately. Reid's retelling of "The Juniper Tree" will have you losing track of time and entering into a world so unlike our own.Obyla was known as the land of witches until it was overrun by tourists and the Wizard Council disbanded. Marlinchen lives with her sisters Rose and Undine in a house on the edge of Obyla with their powerful wizard father. Their father wants to keep them there and the girls want to be anywhere else, they live for their late night adventures. That is until Marlinchen falls for a ballet dancer and everything ceases to exist. Anyone who falls for a Vashchenko girl will suffer greatly... I loved this book so much. It is dark but in the best way. Highly recommend it!!! ~ Reviewed by Kylie Thalheimer

Published: Inkyard Press - June 14th, 2022

While the book shares some similarities with the Outlander series–Scotland, time-traveling, time-displacement, and star-crossed romance–Alsberg introduces an element of fae magic that separates this story from others by introducing readers to worlds beyond their own. Destiny has decided what’s to come; but the heroes will decide if they follow fate’s plans or their hearts’ desires. ~ Reviewed by Hannah Odasz
