I picked up Halayda just because of the cover art alone. And then I read the blurb and realized the book dealt with fairies, magic and alchemy and I knew I needed to read it. And I’m happy to report that Halayda did not disappoint.
The book opens with Sylvie, who was studying alchemy at a local college before being betrayed. She now keeps to herself and watches over half-fae orphans at her house. One night a quarter, she works with King Taylan Ashkalabek of the fae to help keep the peace between faerie and humankind. But plans and schemes are in place to destroy that peace, plans that change Sylvie’s life forever.
Halayda sucked me quickly and did not let go! The character development was great, with a round house of characters that balanced each other out perfectly. The world building was unique and intriguing, and the plot was well developed with a quick pace that kept me turning pages well into the wee hours.
I’m very much looking forward to the next book in the Star-Fae Trilogy!
Thanks to NetGalley for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Rating: 4 stars
