Nimira’s life takes an unexpected turn when she’s hired by the mysterious Mr Hollin Parry to accompany an exquisite piano-playing automaton. But Nimira’s happiness with her new life style is short-lived. She soon discovers that the spirit of a young fairy gentleman is trapped inside the machine’s stiff limbs. As they gradually fall in love, they become enmeshed in a plot to save the fairy realm from a ruthless gang of sorcerers- a battle that risks their very lives.
This was a truly enchanting and magical story that reminded me of a classic fairy tale.
Once i started reading i found myself falling in love with the story, and could hardly put it down.
Nimira and Erris’s story i found completely unique and Original, and was captured perfectly in this 225 page book, which is smaller than a lot of YA books i read these days.
There is a perfect blend of mystery, intrigue, magic and romance to make this a delightful and enjoyable must read for lovers of fairy tale type romantic fantasies.
If you are looking for a great faery story different from the numerous others out there, then this is for you.
4 out of 5 stars.
