I'm so excited about Faery Marked's release I'm devoting my blog to Mary this week. Today - RELEASE DAY - I'm posting my review. As the week progresses, we will also have a guest post from Mary and a character interview. Please be sure to visit for those as well. And since you'll be buying the book and reading it immediately, update us on your reading progress as the week goes along!
Congrats Mary Waibel on the release of FAERY MARKED.
About the book:
When Callie Rycroft wakes to find purple flames flickering on the ceiling, she believes she’s still dreaming. But soon she’s forced to accept that she has magic―a special magic that grants her entrance into the Faery Realm.
For centuries humans have been banned from Faery, but dangerous times call for dangerous measures. Declared Champion by the Faery Queen, Callie is assigned a Guardian, and tasked with finding the Cordial―a magical elixir needed to keep the portal to the Faery realm a secret from humans.
The upside? Reece Michaels, the boy she's been crushing on for years, is her Guardian. Callie hopes that, by spending time with Reece, he'll start to see her as more than just his best friend's sister.
The downside? She's in a race not only against time, but against another Champion, and a rogue Guardian―a Guardian who stands to threaten her developing relationship with Reece.
Faery Marked by Mary Waibel is a fun contemporary fairy tale. Our main character, Callie is dealing with some guilt from an accident that killed her parents, but she’s a strong-willed, smart girl who can think for herself, as well as take care of herself. She’s a character that readers can get behind and root for. Her love interest and the Guardian assigned to protect her is Reece. I admit, the care and attention he shows Callie is swoon-worthy, but for some reason I can’t really explain, my heart belongs to bad boy Ryan. I’m kind of excited to say I think Ryan will play a big part in the second book.
