Summary of the Book:

Experience THE BALLAD OF TAM LIN like you’ve never read it before…

It has been seven years since Jeanette Sauderheim followed her best friend into Carver Hall Park…and came out alone. Jeanette has never gotten over his mysterious disappearance nor has she gone back into the park. While that traumatic night still haunts her, Jeanette distracts herself by balancing her time between trying to pass Spanish, hanging out with her friends, and reading the latest manga.

But, when a promise to a friend drives her back into the park, she’s forced to re-live the memories of that night. Lost and confused, Jeanette crosses paths with Tamrin, whose violent reaction to her provides yet another reason to avoid the park.

Tamrin, a knight of the Summer Court, has been sent to Earth to guard a garden of roses that hold special meaning to the queen of the Summer faeries. When his distraction at meeting Jeanette leads to her picking one of the Summer Queen’s roses, Tamrin vows to right his failure to do his duty.

However, the equivalent of one of the queen’s roses is a human heart and Tamrin’s reluctance to readily exact the sum from Jeanette sets in motion a spiral of love, betrayal, and magic that could mean damnation for them both.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have always been into Fae. They are dark and mysterious in the way their world works right along side of the mortal one. Jeanette is going through a lot and there is a lot that goes on inside of her head and in her world. It starts with the disappearance on Halloween of her friend Timmy in the park. That was years ago and she still has nightmares about it. One a trip back to that part as a short cut she becomes lost and comes across this rose bush and takes one. That is how she crosses paths with Tamrin who is guarding it for the Queen of the Summer Court. There is a price to pay for taking it and it is a heavy one. I enjoys that we get different POVs from the different characters in the story.  The story has such a pull it keeps you turning the pages one after another. I fell into the story and did not fall back out until the book was finished.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
