Gemma Fae Cross isn't your ordinary girl. She's a kick-ass amateur boxer with a congressman-in-running finance, but as it turns out, she's also half faerie - the kind that collects the baby teeth of children. Yes, a tooth faerie. But when Gemma is led to become a warrior for the fae, her human life becomes infinitely complicated. Performed with emotion and energy by acclaimed anime voiceover and stage actress Eileen Stevens, Tooth and Nail is an enthralling listen for fans of fantasy and faerie magic.
Gemma Fae Cross, a tough-girl amateur boxer whose fiancé is running for congress, has just made a startling discovery about herself. She is half faerie - and not just any faerie, but a tooth faerie! A hybrid of fae and human, Gemma is destined to defend the Olde Way and protect the fae - who are incapable of committing violence - from threats to their peaceful and idyllic way of life, which must be maintained by distilling innocence collected from children's baby teeth. But when a threat to the fae mission emerges, Gemma is called upon to protect her heritage, and become a legendary fae warrior... even if it means sacrificing everything she knows about being human!
Wasn't what I was expecting at all. The primary character tells you abut how tuff she is all the time but never dose anything to show it. And many times when a particular male character walks in the room she can't control her feelings and once she was like "my panties became wet". Really? This doesn't come close to the dialogue that goes on in my head during a high stress freakout. When people tell me that men think about sex more than women I think, "Must of been done by a man so he can doctor the results to save face." But for crying out loud no one fearing being discovered as a tooth fairy thinks about how moist her underpants got when the help she called for arrives. Maybe I'm missing something about just how good looking this guy was, or how magically good looking, but nothing came accost that way to me. Sure there is the glamour but she can resist it from other characters but for some reason can't from this guy, or just control herself at all. For a strong female lead she's pretty lousy. This story really should be in romance and I can't finish it. Its not what I thought it was going to be at all.
But don't count the reader out. Poor girl did great with what she had. She's the only reason I made it half way though.
