Description

Tilby, Lincolnshire, 1811. Miss Sophia Landon is the daughter of an impoverished clergyman. Her father’s health is failing fast, but who wants to marry a woman without birth, beauty or wealth? Her prospects are limited indeed - until her friendship with the town’s fae denizens earns her passage to the otherworldly realm of Aylfenhame. Could her fate truly lie beyond the shores of England?

There she meets Aubranael, a young man with a warm heart and a ruined face. In Sophy he sees the answer to his loneliness, but how can a disfigured Ayliri hope to win her heart? When a mysterious witch offers him the temporary gift of beauty, he eagerly accepts: and so begins an adventure that could change his life, and Sophy’s, forever.

    Reading this book transported me back to my childhood, when I would become engrossed for hours and days at a time amongst the fae, hobgoblins, trolls, elves and whatnot Vicariously living in castles as princesses and royalty. A most pleasurable read, with stunning language and descriptions!
  • Disappointing end

    I was really drawn into this story and the characters. I felt like it reached the climax that should set up the rest of the book and I was excited to delve into a deep and complex story and the next chapter was entitled "epilogue ". I understand that this is part of a series, but I just didn't like the ending. I hope the next book doesn't disappoint.
