Waiting On Wednesday (3)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

A captivating and witty dark fantasy that will have girls lusting after it.

Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.

When I saw the cover and the title I didn't expect the story to turn out like this. It's definitely a different kind of fairy tale. Even though it's listed as a fantasy novel it feels real realistic to me. The subject of making choice never gets old. It's hard to decide what to do with your life, even when you're a fairy. Oh and one more interesting thing, the fairy is a guy!

Clean your shelf before June 23rd because you'll need a spot for Fairy Tale
