Rylie seems like any other 15 year old girl. She has great parents, a best friend for life and her boyfriend, Adam. Rylie has a secret that even she doesn’t know. She’s a fairy — that’s right — pointy ears and fluttering wings. She finds out this secret the night before her sixteenth birthday. Not only is she a fairy, but she has special powers that someone else wants. That’s a lot for a teenage girl to comprehend.
Suddenly, the fairy world becomes all too real when Rylie is kidnapped by the king of the dark fairies. She is taken to his castle and told she must marry his son, Kallan, or die.
Dark Promise shows us an entirely new world, hidden away in our midst. Fairies live among us, cloaked in glamour. Their realm exists in an around our own, and we are completely unaware. Authors Julia Crane and Talia Jager create a completely believable world, separate and yet part of, our own.
Rylie (Oleander – her fairy name) is a strong willed, intelligent girl. She has no knowledge of the fairy world, but leans all she can of it when held in the dark king’s castle.
I enjoyed this book very much. It’s not just for teens, adults will enjoy the story too. The main characters are well fleshed out. The dialogue is varied and fun, bringing readers into the conversation. The authors create a fantasy world that is mysterious, but believable.
