Synopsis (from GR)

High school sophomore Syl Skye is an ordinary girl. At least, she’s trying to be. School photographer and all-around geek, she introverts hard and keeps her crush on sexy-hot glam-Goth star Euphoria on the down-low. But when a freak accident Awakens her slumbering power, Syl is forced to accept a destiny she never wanted—as the last sleeper-princess of the fair Fae.

Suddenly hunted by the dark Fae, Syl’s pretty sure things can’t get any worse. Until she discovers her secret crush, Euphoria, is really a dark Circuit Fae able to harness the killing magic in technology. Even worse, she’s been sent to destroy Syl. With mean girls and magic and dark Fae trying to kill her, it’ll take more than just “clap if you believe in fairies” to save Syl’s bacon—not to mention, her heart.

Review

Syl was a high school student like the others until her best friend Fiann and she were in an accident and they were the only survivors. Fiann having saved Syl, she became a star and began ignoring Syl and even bullying her. Since Syl is alone and unhappy but she discovered that she could read the auras of the people.

Euphoria was the princess of the Dark Faes and to save her kingdom she proposed to her father to unite with the Sleeper Princesses of the Fair Faes, however her father disagreed with her and repudiated her and made her the slave of Aggravaine. The latter has succeeded in convincing the Dark Faes that it was necessary to execute all the Sleeper Princesses in order to save their world.

As you will have understood, Euphoria will try to save Syl by all means even if the influence of Aggravaine on her is important. The romance between Syl and Fiann is very beautiful, it’s done gradually and tenderly.

The magic of the Moribund is very complex and it was a bit complicated to understand in English for me. The story is interesting and if you like fairies you will not be disappointed. The characters fit perfectly with young teenagers.

This book deals with several topics: school harassment, homosexuality and self-confidence. All its different subjects are well brought and I took pleasure in reading this book.

I will not say that it’s perfect because it’s not the case, some elements have embarrassed me but my reading has not been impacted.

The author has created a thrilling and action-packed story as I love it while dealing with important topics.

Quick Word: A Dark Fae Princess wishing to save the last Sleeper Princess of the Fair Fae.

Author Bio

Raised by witches and dragons in the northern wilds, GIE writes angsty urban fantasy YA romance–where girls who are mortal enemies kick butt, take names, and fall in love against all odds.

She enjoys long hikes in the woods (where better to find the fair folk?), believing in fairies (in fact, she’s clapping right now), dancing with dark elves (always wear your best shoes), being a self-rescuing princess (hello, black belt!), and writing diverse books about teenage girls finding love, romance, and their own inner power.

She might be planning high tea at the Fae Court right now.

GIE is multi-published, and in her role as an editor has helped hundreds of authors make their dream of being published a reality.
