When seventeen year old Lily finds her parents brutally murdered, leaving her broken and alone, she is determined to bring justice to the fairies responsible. Her quest leads her to infiltrate The Empyrean, the land of the Fae where terrifying creatures lurk in every shadow. But with a political rebellion mounting, bloody battles and foreign enemies stand in her way. Alec, a mysterious and secretive fairy, gradually becomes her guide and dear friend in the unfamiliar world, and restores her faith in love.
Disturbing secrets about her parent’s true identity are revealed, causing her to be more involved with the devastating fairy war than she can afford. Her vengeful mission becomes compromised and her growing romance with Alec wavers. She must conquer her fear of the unknown, ignore her grief, and overcome her growing list of enemies if she is to succeed in avenging her parents’ death. Or ever make it out alive.
Enchanted Revenge will appeal to fans of Jennifer L. Armentrout and Julie Kagawa.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
For some reason, the beginning of October did a number on me. I don't know how to explain it, but I was starting to feel the beginnings of a reading slump coming on, and I was starting to panic.
Then I picked up Enchanted Revenge and it dawned on me. It has been way too long since I've read a book about fairies. Before I knew it, I was flicking the screen on my Kindle so fast it had trouble keeping up with me. Reading slump? What reading slump?
This book has everything. A slow burning romance...no insta-love. In the beginning Lily doesn't even really care for Alec, but knows that she needs him if she's going to avenge her parents' death. A hot, broody male lead who, once you find out about his past, you can't help but love. A lovable and little bit awkward female lead who is very easy to relate to. Her pain over her parents' death was so real and raw. I teared up several times while reading.
Amazing world building. The descriptions were so lush and detailed but not to the point where it was exhausting. And the mythical creatures!!! Oh my goodness! My favorites were the abada and Fenris, a wolf. Lily's first impression of him was hysterical!
I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series. This is definitely a book that I'm going to want in paperback to put on my shelves. It was just amazing!!
