Genre: YA Fantasy

Publisher: Entangled: Teen

Synopsis: Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.

Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.

But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony’s dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it’s literally part of her somehow.

And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past…and discovers her mother didn’t leave to start a new life somewhere. She’s trapped in the hidden world within the valley.

Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love.

Review: I thought this book was cute and very well written. The story was intriguing and the world building was very well done. I also felt the pacing was even as well.

I did feel that the story was a bit hard to get into though and the characters didn’t really speak to me. The book was hard for me to get into but that’s probably just my mood at the moment.

Verdict: A decent fantasy and a gorgeous story.
