Who knew a king bogged down by paperwork could be so refreshing? Plus, King Markon is actually likable. Add Gingell’s particular brand of quirky enchanters/enchantresses for a wonderfully entertaining and offbeat story. Just a delight to read!

Twelve Days of Faery is set up like a magical procedural, with each day covering one part of the investigation into the nasty magic following King Markon’s heir. Enchantress Althea offers her services with a price: if she can stop the magic from harming every girl the prince so much as flirts with, she will be made queen sometime in the future. Too bad Markon’s about to get very (respectfully and not sappily) interested in Althea, even as he gets in over his head with Seelie and Unseelie mischief-makers.

The book contains some violence (never too graphic), intrigue and restrained romance (a king’s got to be dignified, after all). I look forward to reading the rest of this series.

Really great story definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a great fantasy read. It has a little bit of romance, and adventure and the characters are fleshed out wonderfully.

Love this story! Great characters, a nice, clean romance, fun banter and magic! This is my favorite of the series, but all the books are good. I also love this author’s other series.
