Winner of American Book Fest's 2019 Fiction Award for a novella and recipient of a Five Star Reader's Favorite Review.
A book that will appeal to fans of Fae romance, urban fantasy and new age fiction, Angela Savidge's debut novella, Urban Faery: A Modern Fantasy, touches on such subjects as the Trump Administration's offshore drilling initiative, the revolutionary #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, and Southern California's cannabis and surf cultures.
Los Angeles, 2018 - Cate has grown disillusioned with the realities of Hollywood and a deep sense of meaninglessness has been looming over her lately. Desperate to reconnect with the natural world, she wades into the ocean at one of Malibu’s most notorious surf breaks but is unaware that a powerful swell has moved in putting her in the direct path of danger. When Cate is rescued by a mysterious surfer named Luc, an alluring Welsh renegade and a modern-day descendant of the ancient Fae race, she is propelled into a new era of self-discovery and a total re-evaluation of the world around her.
It lacked nothing; the protagonists had chemistry, the setting was believable and the narritave was perfection. This is a wonderful start to a series that is going to be a great success.
This is one of the most beautifully written romance novels I’ve read. The author describes scenery in such a lush, poetic way! The main character Luc always remained mysterious and I wanted to know more about him. I felt a lot of sympathy towards Cate, and I’m wondering if there will be a continuation of this story. A lot more questions could be answered, and I want to know will the Fae fully reveal themselves to humans in modern-day LA. The author described current events so clearly, if this book is read in 100 years, the reader will really get a sense of our crazy current political situation. I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily.
