Just One Taste Is All It Takes...
This is no ordinary mirror. Caspian caught a hint of color, a whirl of a waltz just past his reflection—a glimpse into the decadent Fairy Court of Annwyn. The home he could never have. It called to him, whispering temptation after temptation...if he could only reclaim his rightful heritage.
To Be Forever Lost...
Caspian has an even stronger reason to stay in the world of humans. He's just met a woman who captivates him like no other. But loving him has proven to be dangerous. And he will do whatever it takes to protect Lydia from the vicious, seductive world of Court—even if doing so requires the ultimate sacrifice: his soul.
Having loved Shona Husk’s Goblin series, I was eager to read her new series. So when The Outcast Prince arrived in my mailbox, I knew I was in for a treat.
Caspian has the ability to see and feel the memories items hold, which makes his job as an antiques appraisal easy. Yet when he must be careful not to allow himself to get caught up in the temptation the fairy mirror offers.
When Lydia’s grandmother passes away and Lydia has to have her estate appraised, Lydia gets more than just a fair price when Caspian shows up.
I loved, loved, loved this book.
I found both Caspian and Lydia intriguing and the world that Shona Husk was so well crafted it was believable. The plot was a bit stop and go. Some parts were a bit slow, while others sped along quicker than I would have liked.
Overall, The Outcast Prince was a strong start to what I am sure will be another strong series from Shona Husk.
