Faylinn one

“Was I still a human? Gosh, I still wanted to be human. Even just to keep a sliver of who I thought I was. But as I thought about being human, standing in the shade of the forest, I felt less human than ever. The trees fought for my allegiance."

It starts in her chest. The change Calliope doesn't see coming. It pulses like a second heartbeat, urging her to give in to the need to be in the depths of the forest. She's compelled to fight the pull, but the more she denies it the stronger it becomes until she finally surrenders and is pulled into a secret world of enchantment.

Kai and Declan need her to accept what she is, but with everything left unsaid, acceptance may be the least of their worries. Knowing their fate lies in her hands, they’ll stop at nothing to protect and prepare her for what lies ahead.

Will Calliope be able to accept what Kai and Declan reveal or will her desire to be normal keep her from acknowledging her true destiny?

Hayes pulled me in with her prologue and I was reading with bated breath until the last page. Truth be told, it took me a day to finish this book; I just couldn’t put it down.

This book was a breath of fresh air in the YA genre. The flow, the characters, the romance, and the paranormal beings were phenomenal.

Faylinn two

By accepting her destiny, Calliope entered the enchanting world of Faylinn. She wasn’t prepared for all the compromises she would be forced to make. After being thrown into her duties as queen, it’s clear she must pick her battles wisely or risk loosing the respect of her kingdom.

With Kai and Declan by her side her confidence rises, but they can’t protect her from everything. When Faylinn is threatened Calliope is forced to face an even greater reality than she was prepared for. Haunted by the truthfulness of Favner’s last words, she realizes she has no idea what she’s gotten herself into.

Will Calliope be able to hold true to Faylinn’s beliefs while still following her heart or will she be forced to sacrifice a part of herself in order to save her kingdom?

Ember was everything I wanted it to be and so much more!!! Mindy did not disappoint but instead far exceeded my expectations with this beautifully created world.

faylinn three

Heartbroken and a prisoner in her own castle, it is time for Calliope to take matters into her own hands. Mere days remain until she is bound to Sakari and the Waking Oak is destroyed. It seems hopeless, but Calliope is determined to fight.

Loyal to the core, Sakari has always respected and followed his father’s direction, but Adair is pushing boundaries Sakari isn’t sure he wants to cross. Yet remaining loyal to his kingdom may hurt the ones he loves the most.

Kai has a plan to save Faylinn. It's risky and will require a sacrifice that may cost him his life, but if he doesn’t try, Calliope will be lost to him forever.

War in Faylinn is fast approaching. Hearts will be broken. Sacrifices will be made. Lives will be lost. Only the strongest will be left standing.

This was an amazing conclusion to this journey and just when I thought I knew what I wanted to have happen I changed my mind. I cried so hard reading this book and loved it! Definitely the best in the series!

Luminary was the best book in this series but I will always crave more from the Faylinn world.

I have to say I will forever love this series and these characters. Mindy has done it again! I was skeptical of a few things at first, but dang if she didn’t turn my skepticism into love and hope! And can I just say I DID NOT see THAT coming! I mean wow. Love the way she brought it all together and made me love, already loved, characters even more!
— Brittany DeLys, author of The Triad Series
I would highly recommend this series. I went from a reader who truly hated and refused to read any books on Fae to someone who couldn’t put down a book in this series. The author took such care in creating characters with strong three dimensional qualities that readers could relate too. You can rest assure I will be stalking more books in this series in the future.
