In a little village nestled and hidden that is close to a faerie realm lives the widow Miller and her daughters. Years ago the widow’s husband had abused his family and then stumbled into a pond and drowned leaving them to live with their wounds and fend for themselves.
One day the widow comes across a baby in the woods that is in danger of drowning and when she saves her she finds that this is no ordinary child but a faerie babe. Now the fae only have one child each generation so saving this baby will put the mother in the widow’s debt so she asks for wishes for her and her daughter’s for the safe return.
Maythorn’s Wish is the first book in the Fey Quartet series which I do believe are a set of novellas that are somewhat of a prologue to another upcoming series. I do believe each of these novellas are meant to read as standalone stories though focusing on different characters and their stories.
There was actually quite a bit packed into this short little novella so hat’s off to the author of doing a wonderful job with the world and character building along with an interesting little plot in such a short time. Normally there feels to be something left out or rushed through but I really enjoyed this one the way it is with great writing to support and interesting story.
Overall, a nice start to this series and will definitely be interested in reading other books by this author in the future.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
