Full disclosure – I was provided a copy of this book by the author; however, I have voluntarily chosen to write a review. All opinions are my own.
A Fairy’s Quest is scheduled for an April 6, 2021 release
A Birthright Restored
Alina Lehrer is a successful life coach but that is not all she is. As heir to the Fairy kingdom, she and her family have been living in the shadows for years after the Fairy/Wizard wars forced the rightful royal family into hiding almost a century earlier. But recent rumblings about the resurgence of the Royal Court of Faries have emerged, which has prompted her overbearing mother to send her on a quest to Paris, to gain an audience with the Court’s Le Souverain to authenticate and regain her family’s claim to the throne. As luck would have it, while she is waiting to board her flight at Chicago’s O’Hare airport, she meets a handsome and charming Parisian on his way back home from a pleasure trip in the Windy City. Alina’s quest quickly morphs into a whirlwind romance with this intriguing and passionate stranger, but Rylan holds secrets of his own. As the Royal Court of Faries’ top spy and assassin Rylan’s mission is to eliminate Alina. Things do not turn out to plan as Rylan finds himself working to save his target and bring down the corruption in the Royal Court.
A Fairy’s Quest is the third installment in The Magicals series of books by author Maya Tyler. While set in the same general location as the previous two installments this book can be read as a stand-alone offering or as part of an overall storyline. While the books do not rely on each other to further the story, several of the main characters do make an appearance in the other installments. For instance, Alina was first introduced as the life coach for Kurtis Warde in “A Wizard’s Choice” and while there was a bit of interaction between the pair, this new book can be read independently of that one without any confusion in the story. Additionally, with this installment, we catch up again with Marisa from “A Vampire’s Tale” as she pays a visit to Alina for some paranormal advice.
Overall, the action for this installment was fast-paced and consisted of a series of “real-time” action as well as flashbacks to Alina’s younger years as well as recent traumatic experiences. While this could prove to be a difficult flow to follow for some, I felt that Tyler’s use of the flashback helped to fully flesh out the story and Alina’s character effectively for the length of the book. If you are looking for a quick fast-paced adventure that is as thrilling as it is sexy, A Fairy’s Quest would be a good one to check out. I am not sure if Tyler has any more Magicals books in the works, but if there are I will definitely be front and center to see what she dreams up next.
