Amy Smith has always known she was different. Severe allergies, fragile health and taunts at school have made life an endurance test for the adopted seventeen year old.
When Amy starts having strange dreams, everything changes. Night after night, she becomes trapped in a shroud of black – a void of silence but for a male voice calling for a girl named ‘Marla’. One night, the darkness clears, Leif is revealed and Amy discovers that she is the girl he has been searching for.
Immediately the two are swept up in a passionate yet forbidden love. Leif isn’t like the other boys Amy knows. Breathtakingly gorgeous, he speaks with her telepathically … not to mention, he can fly …
Desperate to find a way to be with her, Leif tells Amy of the terrifying threat to his Fae homeland, the danger to the people, and of an unforgivable betrayal to his King. He urges her to seek her true identity…. But Amy is confused… isn’t it all just a dream?
Oh my, everything about this book was beautiful from the description of Faera, the writing and characters.
The protagonist, Amy was a very bubbly and interesting character to read about, her love for nature and her friends was really nice to read about and Wanda’s writing of Amy was really intriguing.
Faera, the mythical world that Wanda created was just so realistic and I found it so easy to imagine it in my head which I really loved. Makes me really wish it was real so I could visit!
Overall, Betrothed was a really awesome fantasy read, beautiful writing, characters and world building! Would highly recommend to those that love cute fictional guys and have a love for fairies!
MY RATING: 4/5 stars!
