Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory's arrival she will discover she is the long lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.

With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

Some things are better left in the shadows.

Reviewed by Kelly.

Emory Fae had been taken from her world and brought to Earth to live so that one day she would return and fight to save her kingdom. Memphis and Brokk go and bring her back to the underground rebellion headquarters. It had been a long time since she had left and the boys hadn't told anyone that they hid her away. They all believed her to be dead as did the enemy.

That does't help people to trust in any of them!

With nonstop action and vivid scenery we watch as the enemy, Adair, moves in. We find those who double cross and those who are discovering things about themselves they had no idea about! We watch Emory jump into her role and make some bold moves and also learn about her own supernatural powers. There is a romance going on too, but it doesn't get a whole lot of notice as there is little time to dwell on it with all that is going on.

It was a little confusing at first! I also was frustrated with Emory, she seemed ready to jump into a world that she had some vague memories of and fight when she really didn't have much training. She is also older than young adult, although as others have said it would appeal to the young adult category. By the end, I was all in and was very irritated where it ended! It was a doozy with a revelation! I want the next book like now!! This is going to be an awesome series and I can't wait to see where it goes!

If you like fantasy, queens, good vs. evil, werewolves, superpowers, moles, tiny bit of romance, cliffhangers than this might be for you!

Chapter Four: Memphis
The scream tore through his mind, ringing as Memphis watched Brokk stalk out of the room, his hurt plain across his face. He glanced at the now panting Emory, her anger dissipating to confusion once more. Her movements were impatient as she perched on the edge of the bunker and cradled her head. DzEmory? My name is Memphis Carter. Do you know who I am?dz He could feel Nyx’s eyes burning into his back. With a slight nod of her head, Emory peeked up at him through her fingers. DzVaguely. That still doesn’t answer where I am, and what he was doing here.dz Her voice was like crystal, smooth and commanding. The voice of a Queen. Guilt twanged in his gut, and he chose his next words carefully. DzI realize what this is going to sound like, and that’s insane. Brokk and I brought you here to this world. This is the Academy—our home. You came from Earth, but this world, our world, was your home first. Kiero. We grew up together. Your family built our government. To us, you are the rightful heir to their lineage.dzIt was like walking on ice—too much pressure at once and her mind would break. Memphis had to dance around the edges. Especially to protect what he had done. He asked softly, DzHow much do you remember?dzHer eyes were daggers as she shakily stood up. DzWhy should I remember this place? This world? So you’re telling me that you just kidnapped me and transported me to another world? This isn’t freaking Star Trek! It feels like my mind is being split in two. I remember my life—going to work, my apartment...but now...now it’s like someone has drawn back the stage curtain and all these broken memories have come into play. I see myself as a little girl and instead of being raised in an orphanage, I’m with parents...? And we had abilities...like supernatural abilities. Which just proves that I have lost my mind from stress because I’m being held hostage—dz She choked on panic and laughter. Emory searched his eyes for an explanation. DzShow her.dzNyx’s quiet voice resonated in his mind. He stared back at Emory, narrowing his eyes. He could gently feed more memories to her. It was the only way to make her see the truth. Reaching toward Emory, he placed his palm against her temple. Her skin was cool and soft, and he could feel the adrenaline rushing through her.
