Book Title: The Faerie RingAuthor: Kiki HamiltonBook Series: The Faerie Ring, Book #1Genres: YA, FantasyRelease Date: September 27, 2011
The year is 1871...
Tiki has been making a home for herself and her family of orphans in a deserted hideaway adjoining Charing Cross Station in central London. Their only means of survival is by picking pockets. One December night, Tiki steals a ring, and sets off a chain of events that could lead to all-out war with the Fey. For the ring is a reservoir that holds a truce between the English royals and the world of the Fey. But there are many who want the ring, including the mysterious Rieker, a handsome pickpocket who has been watching Tiki, and a rebel group of UnSeelie fey who would do anything to break the truce...
A delicious blend of urban fantasy and heart-stopping suspense, the story of THE FAERIE RING takes you from the gritty slums of London to the glittering ballrooms of the Royal Palace to the menacing Otherworld - in a spellbinding tale of mystery and suspense where nothing is what it seems...
This was an easy pick this week. This cover evokes my childhood view of fairies – tiny like Tinkerbell, little ball of light, etc, etc. So simple, yet so beautiful. Black and red are also one of my favorite color combinations.
