Book Review: Fae by C.J. Abedi

Fae (Fae Trilogy #1) by C.J. Abedi
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: July 30, 2013
Publisher: Diversion Publishing

The battle between Dark and Light is about to begin.

Caroline Ellis' sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn't until Caroline begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth of her heritage is revealed.

Devilyn is the only Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him. He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself.

Told from the alternating perspectives of Caroline and Devilyn, FAE draws on mysteries, myths and legends to create a world, and a romance, dangerously poised between Light and Dark.

Fae is the first book in the Fae series by C.J. Abedi. I liked this one. The characters really carried this story. Caroline was a very believable teenager whose world just got a whole lot bigger. Devilyn really interested me though. He's half dark fae and half light. We all have dark and light in us, and it's up to us to choose the right paths, but with this poor guy, the two sides are constantly at war inside him. The light is winning, but for how long? Add in a devastating prophesy, and it just feels like it's all a lost  cause. This one was really intriguing, and I truly enjoyed the characters. And, after that ending, i really need to know what happens next.
