Callie LeRoux isn’t who she thinks she is. When her mother “disappears” during a freak sand storm her world is turned completely upside down. She attempts to keep the hotel running while her mother is gone, but finds herself caught up with some strange characters - a mysterious man, a strange family and Jack, a hobo boy. Can she trust anyone?
This was an interesting read – a first for me by this author as well. It was a unique look at life in America in the 1930’s during the depression, with some fae and paranormal elements. Life wasn’t easy during that time period, and Callie’s world and everything she’s known has been taken away from her. With rival groups of fae all hunting for her, can she find a safe place and will she ever be able to find her mother again?
The one thing I have to say I didn’t like was how the story ends abruptly, which means I’m hoping all my questions will be answered in the next installment of the series. Will Callie find what she’s looking for? Will her father’s family eventually track her down? So many unanswered questions!
Will I read more by this author? Yes, I’d like to find out what happens to Callie and Jack! Will they be able to make it to California without getting themselves into too much trouble! Will I recommend this book? For anyone who enjoys fae stories; and this one is a very unique look in my opinion – will enjoy this book.
