A cute story! In most cases the village stays put, but in this story the child must travel for her own safety and the her kingdom must nominate her a village 'as take-out' to travel with her since the kingdom itself is endangered. In this case: a prince of the realm to lead, an emotionless lady of war, an experienced healer, two lovers, a disfigured and shy gentleman, and a courageous precognitive youngster with a very poor case of impulse control.

I've never read a pure faer story before. Aside from differences in physiology (i.e. wings) and life-span they're much like a pre-industrial agrarian Celtic culture. You could pretty much ignore the flying and the wings and not particularly change the tale. I'm aware of the difference between Seelie and Unseelie Courts and for this author that seems rivalry between royal houses, with loyalty on the evil side induced by a bit a magical contagion passed on by vampirism.

The real magic is in the portrayal of the relationships themselves and the poignancy various of the characters experience in their own separate rites of passage as they grown in ability to raise and protect a child of unknown origins who is implied to be the key to end a war between opposing factions of faer.

Some of what transpires in those relationships while not terribly explicit is best for mature readers only, late teens and up, and to the author's credit the intimacy is only utilized for character development.

I think much can be cut from the story, pretty much a rehash of that culture's Industrial Revolution step by step, and still make the story a very good one that would be appreciated by audiences with only average patience. I understand this to be a long story in an even longer series, and so I will provide a provisional four-stars in the hopes the subsequent novels support will support it ongoing story just as well as the beginning did.

I quite liked the story and the characters. But to be honest, I got a bit sick of the main character always depending on the others. I also would prefer if the main character ended up with her best friend. I didn't like rayan at all. ALSO CAN I SAY MARRYING IN UNDER A MONTH? NObody does that unless she's knocked up... I'm always more for the underdog than the prince to get the girl tbh. Also maybe if there was more action and less romance I would have enjoyed it more.
