Title: Fae’s Enlightenment (Call of the Elements #4)
Author: Yvette Bostic
Out of the frying pan and into the fire. I never imagined that stupid saying would apply to me.
The fae – my people – agreed to take me in and teach me how to be one of them. Just like the vampires, the fae do nothing for free. Braden got me in the door, but the price to stay gets steeper every day.
Typical of my life, there are too many players in the game and none of them want to play nice. As each one shows their hand, I realize my elementals aren’t the only ones good at manipulating my future. The Woodland Fae want me to overthrow their queen. The Highland Fae want me dead. The Oceanic Fae want my secrets.
So where does that leave me? Balancing on the edge of a civil war and once again wondering who my allies really are.
This book took us to places that we haven’t seen before, specifically that of the fae realm. As AJ gains control over her powers, she’ll meet a variety of new faces. Not all of whom can be trusted.
AJ is a fantastic protagonist. I’ve admired her from the very beginning. She’s strong and determined. Regardless of what is thrown her way, she keeps her head up. Even throughout this book when challenges both external and internal try to keep her down, she fights her way through because the only worse than defeat is to give up.
I liked her romance subplot in this story and found Brendan to be intriguing in own ways. He’s a beautiful and complicated addition to the story that only makes it even more compelling.
Worldbuilding is fantastically done and so is the author’s writing style. The book flows easily, making it easy to devour this addition of AJ’s tale.
