With Earth in ruins and the planet dying after a war that has lasted for more than a hundred years on the planet magical creatures of all kinds are trying to rebuild and replenish Earth. There is still a small resistance of humans that fight against magic being on their planet even though the human population is down to a small percentage of what it once had been and in danger of extinction.
Tulupea’s mother is the Queen of the Fae realm and had been on Earth trying to use her healing powers to rebuild the planet. She has come up with a plan along with an Earth scientist to create a superior race breeding a human and a fae through scientific methods. Tulupea of course wants to meet the human she is being volunteered to breed children with and soon finds herself falling for the strange human and fiercely wanting to protect him and the planet Earth.
Arranged got off to a somewhat slow start for me building up the setting, characters and world but once the story got going on Earth I was completely hooked on where the journey would take me. Being the first book in a series you are introduced to this dystopian setting and a small portion of the magic and creatures still left on the planet which had me quite intrigued with where it could all go.
Tulupea was a bit of a spoiled brat type of character in the beginning which may be a bit of a turn off for some. She is what she is though, a princess that has not known anything other than her world of comfort and quite headstrong as she has been raised to someday rule. I thought the author portrayed her just how she really should be and became quite fond of her. Michael is also an interesting character as he is going against what he had been taught to believe and showing compassion for those he would have been fighting against.
Overall, great start to the series with a bit of a cliffhanger ending that had me wanting to continue on reading.
I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
