Fae's Deception (Queens of the Fae Book 1) Kindle Edition
A human girl with a troubled past.
A fae prince from a stolen kingdom.
When he whisks her away to the fae realm, there is no going back to her old life.
Under the rule of a captivating queen, the kingdom of Fargelsi has brought the three fae lands to the brink of war. And now that same queen has her eyes set on a new pawn—a human girl.
Allied with the usurper king, the royals seek to overthrow all those who oppose their unmatched power. Unmatched—until Brea Robinson arrives and proves to be more than they bargained for.
As the motivations of those around her become clear, Brea must decide if she can trust the handsome prince who abducted her, or if she might be safer across the wastelands and swamps, in a land in desperate need of the magic she doesn’t know she has.
Prepare to lose yourself in this beautifully wicked epic fantasy with masterful world building, dark and twisty secrets, lies, and powerful magic—and devastatingly handsome fae princes.

From the Publisher
I would recommend this book to fans of fae, betrayal, romance, and stories where what seems like glitz and gold might actually be poison. YA Book Central Review
Full of the beauty and deception you've come to expect from the Fae, this book stands out in the sea of others with an intricate plot, Fae brothers, and a fantastic lead. YA Book Central Review
Overall I really enjoyed Fae's Deception. It's a fantastic start to a new series. Brea is amazing and the O'Shea brothers intriguing. I cannot wait to dive into the next one. If you are a fan of Holly Black or Fae stories in general, you will love this one! YA Book Central Review

After that, the story follows the traditional"lost princess" routine. Two handsome young men show up at different times to break Brea out of jail and bring her to the magical kingdom of the fae, where she learns that she is a changeling princess. This is where Brea's personality, or lack thereof, starts to create problems. It seems like she trusts everyone and no one at the exact same time. She goes along with Loch when he breaks her out of jail and then Griff when he tells her Loch is bad. As soon as one of them stops being of use to her, and then she runs back to the other one. She ran from Loch to Griff and vice versa so many times in this book that it felt like an intentional gag, even though it wasn't supposed to be. Then all of a sudden, she was falling in love with Griff until she was falling in love with Loch for seemingly no reason. She ran away so much that she never took the time to truly get to know either of these opposing brothers. It's probably no coincidence that the book has two authors since the main character is constantly being pulled in two different directions.
This wasn't one of the worst books I've ever read, but it wasn't quite my cup of tea. It did a good job of capturing the dark lore of fae mythology in a creepy and dangerous setting. I think it would have some appeal among teen readers who enjoy gothic supernatural fiction such as the Twilight crowd. As far as faery princess stories go, it depended too much on the shock value and not enough on the characters' actual motivations. At times, it felt as though it was only written to convince readers to buy the next book, a technique that isn't generally effective for fleshing out a complete novel. Brea's impulsive and self-doubting nature makes her a good candidate as a Mary Sue for young readers who want to imagine themselves as her. The love triangle, superpowers, and secret royalty aspects might be enough to appeal to audiences who aren't interested in anything deeper, but it didn't work for me.
Overall, I got the impression that the Fae's Deception series is written solely for teenagers who like dark and brooding main characters that get everything they desire without needing to earn it. As an older reader, the lack of logic that went into the inciting incident and Brea's inconsistency in who she trusts made the story difficult to swallow. Though it wasn't based on a fairy tale, it had a similar enough story to so many other books I've read in the past that it didn't feel particularly original. I would recommend this series only to younger readers who are fans of Twilight and similar novels.
I got about 20% of the way through the story and couldn’t take any more. It was a struggle to finish, really.
The princess without powers was actually well written and I felt that she should’ve been the main character. I actually enjoyed the other characters as well.
I gave 4 stars simply because the plot was interesting.
Brea is a human girl with difficult family situation, almost no friends, and strange ability to see glimpses other cannot, so she is considered crazy. But when crazy becomes her new life, she enters a fae court and it looks like all her dreams have come true, it is easy to lose the skill to distinguish reality from illusion.
Interesting series starter with a heroine that stands out like a sore thumb and a complicated world of fae court politics. Added element of tension coming from Lochlan and Griffin and the remaining mystery what role can Alona play in the whole situation makes this book a great motivator to continue the series further.
Lots of twists and a fast moving plot. Appropriate for younger readers as well with no explicit sex but mature enough of a story for everyone. Funny as well as the main character gets a lot of funny lines.
