Heart of Fae by Emma Hamm
If you haven't heard of Emma Hamm, congratulations, let your addiction begin.
I grabbed this because a friend on Instagram shared the sale and was raving and I am So glad that I clicked the link and got it! I loved this book SO HARD.
This was a fairy tale retelling of Beaty and the Beast, loosely. and it was all the fae glory that I wanted it to be.
I felt like this novel could have easily been one of those scoff shows that end up with cult followings. It was that cinematic while reading.
Hang with me, do any of you remember The Seeker? Yeah? This would be that type of show. CULT FOLLOWING Y'ALL.
Emma delivers characters that you instantly are in love with and a world that you wish you could visit. Her writing is fantastic, I swear when I say I couldn't put the book down, when I actually had to, I kept thinking, "I can't wait to get back to that show" because it was legitimately that visual.
Beauty and the Beast meets Irish Mythology in this sweeping retelling of the beloved fairytale....
Once upon a time…
A plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Uí Néill, leaving a young midwife’s father with months to live. To save her people, Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae. She must travel across the sea, through merrow and kelpie lands, to find a forgotten king on a crumbling throne.
Born king of the Seelie Fae, Eamonn fought battles unnumbered to uphold honor, duty, and freedom… until his twin brother sank a blade between his shoulders. Crystals grew from the wound, splitting open skin and bone. His people banished him to a cursed isle for his disfigurement, now king of criminals and fools.
With the help of brownies, pixies, and will-o’-the-wisps, Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne.
This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart.
