@SourcebooksFire 5 Star #Giveaway #Review of The Boy With the Hidden Name by @SkylarDorset

This is not your average trip to Fairyland...

Selkie Stewart has just saved her quasi-boyfriend, Ben, from a fairy prison run by the Seelie Court. If they weren't the two most-wanted individuals in the Otherworld before, they definitely are now. Along with Ben and the rest of their ragtag group of allies-Selkie's ogre aunts; a wizard named Will; Ben's cousin Safford; and Kelsey, Selkie's best friend-Selkie is ready to embrace her destiny and bring the Court down. Until she hears the rest of her prophecy: Benedict le Fay will betray you, and then he will die.

 About the Author

Skylar DorsetSkylar’s first story was a tale of romantic intrigue involving two feuding factions of squirrels. Think “Romeo & Juliet” but with bushy tails and added espionage. She was seven.

Since that time, Skylar’s head has been filled with lots of characters and lots of drama. She is delighted to be able to share some of it with all of you now, because, honestly, it was getting pretty loud and crowded in there.

Skylar is a born-and-bred New Englander, which is why Boston was a natural setting for her debut novel, THE GIRL WHO NEVER WAS. Skylar shares her home with a cardboard cutout of the Tenth Doctor, lots of Mardi Gras beads from the time she spent living in New Orleans, and a harp she’s supposed to be teaching herself to play. She’d like to get a dog.




Never Trust a Faerie 

Ok so again you can watch the author on my show below!  I so had to add that!! 

Alright so I read most of this one while at Universal haha.  Hoping for long lines was the best!!  I finished it in a day again or less than a day.  Depending on the time you are keeping (yup so going to be doing that one for a while!)  And well it was fab!! 

Ok so I know that this book doesn't come out until Dec. and that this review is posting like 2 months in advance but I couldn't wait to tell you about it!!!  So read this then go pre order it!! 

This one picks up where book one leaves off.  I think its been a few days.  Again it all depends on the time your keeping.  (and it really does in this book!!)  Selkie is somewhat still sulking about how things ended in book one.  I have to say that the ending of book one ripped my heart out and stomped on it.  I really love how Selkie can pick things up that she will need later on.  Which is just so cool!!!!!!

We get new friends in this one but I don't think we got enough of them.  Im really happy that we've got another novella coming.  With the clock ticking down to midnight and the Seelies trying to break into Boston it was a wild ride for Selkie and her friends. 

The story was still fast paced and wonderful!  So was hoping for a book three!!  I want to come back to this world.  But, it ends on a note that works. I really love what the author did with the ending of this one.  She tied up all the loose strings.  We don't spend as much time in the Otherworld in this one and that was just fine. 

The characters are still great in this book and again I really love her aunts!!  We find out some other secrets and loose some friends.  But, don't worry it all comes back together in the end.  So don't be sad.  It will deff be one that I reread later!
