Title: A Twist of Fae
Author: Rebekah Shafer
Genre: Supernatural
Publication: October 21, 2014
Pages: 67


“My crystal was vibrating harder than ever now. More fae were moving in. I glanced over my shoulder at the dark gardens. This can’t be good. The crystal was designed to register the presence of faery matter, besides serving as identification and other mundane uses, but after the years I’d spent wearing one around my neck, I was becoming more and more convinced it picked up on danger, too.”

In special agent Burgundy Graves’ opinion, desk work is for sissies. So what if Surfaeillance Agency exists to regulate faery activity on Earth? Tracking the monsters is a form of regulating. Give her a gun, a dangerous threat to hunt down, no questions asked, and she’s in.

But when Surfaeillance puts her in a team of wet-behind-the-ears investigators and tasks them with trailing a clueless millionaire, Burgundy begins to seriously consider pulling out—until the millionaire is murdered on her watch.

With the agency at risk, and shape-shifting ogres on the loose, Burgundy races to unmask her enemies before she becomes the next victim in this deadly, faery-tainted plot.

Too short! Cross my heart, that is my only complaint. I was rapidly taken in by Shafer’s writing style as her descriptions of all things Fae captivated me from the first chapter. I’m an actiongirl at heart, which further justifies my love of the fast-paced scenes mixed with the ethereal descriptions of Fairyland found in this book.

Enter Burgundy Graves, a heroine that I can honestly say I loved from beginning to end. She is saucy, has a kick-butt mentality (which you know you all secretly adore), and has a pixie sidekick that manages to win over the reader within just a few short pages. Just saying, a naysayer of pixie dust I am not. Bring it on!

4 quills! Hats off to Shafer on a wonderful fantasy debut piece! I will certainly be eagerly anticipating more adventures with Burgundy and I highly recommend A Twist of Fae to anyone who is ready to fall in love with a new series!

Happy Reading my lovelies!
