What Kills Me

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.

  1. The Hunter Moon is new to me. That sounds interesting. It's crazy that all your picks are a part of a series. WOW! Series are taking over. It was great seeing you yesterday.

    1. You and I are opposites, my friend. I prefer series to stand-alone books. I like the long journeys, getting more intimate with characters and their stories. It often slows down the amount of books I read, though.

      Great to see you, too. Love being a Mocha Girl!
