Publisher's Summary

The Lord of Stariel is dead. Long live the Lord of Stariel. Whoever that is. 

Everyone knows who the magical estate will choose for its next ruler. Or do they? Will it be the lord’s eldest son, who he despised? His favourite nephew, with the strongest magical land-sense? His scandalous daughter, who ran away from home years ago to study illusion? 

Hetta knows it won’t be her, and she’s glad of it. Returning home for her father’s funeral, all Hetta has to do is survive the family drama and avoid entanglements with irritatingly attractive local men until the Choosing. Then she can leave. But whoever Stariel chooses will have bigger problems than eccentric relatives to deal with. 

Winged, beautifully deadly problems. 

For the first time in centuries, the fae are returning to the Mortal Realm, and only the Lord of Stariel can keep the estate safe. In theory. 

The Lord of Stariel is the first book in the Stariel quartet.

Unexpected and delightful

The prologue of this book had me so confused… It seems so incongruous with the blurb about the story. That is the perfect antidote for how this book goes. It’s a lovely novel about a multi faceted family and an estate with rich heritage and BOOM fey invasion! Absolutely LOVE the characters and FANTASTIC narration

Well written but not very exciting

I really liked the characters and the writing style but it took a long time for the plot to take off and the stakes never seemed very high. The romance was nice but a bit dull.

Plot, performance and pros all excellent!

absolutely loved it, enjoyably unpredictable, and characters felt logical and consistent. It maintains it's light hearted tone and thankfully avoids many tired tropes. Can't wait to hear the next one.

A Magical Mystery with Romance and Action.

I love the world in The Lord of Stariel with interesting characters that all have secrets. A hard turn from what I was expecting set the scene for a grand scale to unfold. Where many books continue predictably this one did not. A good Balance of Action and Romance whilst setting the scene for greater tales to emerge. Finty Williams fits the book perfectly and has done an amazing performance.

Love it!

This is one of my favorite book series! I've read it before but being able to listen to it on audio book was great while I'm home with my new baby - sometimes I don't like audio books because the narrator annoys me but in this instance the narrator was excellent. A fun story set in a fantasy/steampunk world with interesting characters and (most importantly) a satisfying ending. This series gets even better as it continues - book three is my favorite and I'm looking forward to number four!
