Publisher's Summary

Thousands of years ago, the sovereigns of the Fae lands issued a decree: The Wishers would die.

Powerful magics were called forth, and in an act never before or since accomplished, both light and dark, both Seelie and Unseelie, gathered together in their courts and combined their powers. The Wishers were annihilated.

However...legends told how the strongest and most fortunate few managed to escape and hide themselves amongst humans in the mortal realm.

But thousands of years passed with no sign of these legendary Wishers. They were declared extinct.

And in its rareness, in its extinctness, the lost, most powerful class of the fae, in fact became sacred.

There are a lot of things Selene Trystaine would change about the world if she could. Injustices press in, apathy reigns, and unkindness seems to have taken hold in the crevices of humanity. So when she learns that she is not who she has always believed herself to be and destiny presents her with her birthright, she must battle with her inner demons, even while the handsome and powerful king of those who'd once attempted to destroy her kind discovers her - and begins an all-out attack of seduction on her senses.

Contains mature themes.

Not really a romance

It is the overall story arc that keeps me reading this series. They are in the romance package but with the exception of the Phantom King and the Goblin King they are not so much a couple falling in love as a couple who are thrown together by fate. But the overall story arc about ancient grudges and supernatural wars keeps me readi
ng. I could have done without Selene's revenge fest, all that really accomplished was insight into the authors political views it was a waste of time. I will continue with the series so I can see how it all plays out. Anthony Ferguson is outstanding and the story is a 3.5.I wish the entire series was on Audible and more than the first 4 were included in the Audible Romance package, but as I said I want to know how it all plays out.
