Just my rambling, plus whatever book I've recently read!
He leans down, lips parted, and then our lips connect ... We didn’t know that this one kiss has FOREVER changed the Land of the Fae.
According to the Prophecy proclaimed many years ago, Princess Calista of the Summer Court is destined to change the Land of the Fae from the evil determined to destroy it. Her powers are phenomenal, and she secretly trains for battle with her handsome warrior friend, Merrick, who unbeknownst to her protects her heart as well, in hopes of keeping it for himself. At least, until the seductive Prince Ryder attends the Guardian Ceremony and instantly sends a fire burning through her veins and a connection so deep they both discover a love above anything imaginable.
No one knows how Calista is destined to change the kingdoms, but there is one that does. He not only craves Calista’s power, but her body as well, and his goal is to steal her power, make her his Dark Queen, and take over the Land of the Fae.
Will the evil succeed in claiming Calista’s soul? Or will the two men that fight for her heart save her from despair, and help her fulfill her destiny to become what she was meant to be.

Forever Fae is the first book in the series of the same name, and we have the Summer and Winter Courts of the Fae. However, a prophecy says there will be four. And the power for these Courts reside in four maidens and their partners. Unfortunately, there is also a dark wizard who wants the power for himself and will stop at nothing to get it, even going so far as to inhabit other bodies and kidnap princesses.
Told from various perspectives, you are taken with Calista as she accepts her best friend (who is in love with her) as her Guardian, as she meets her soul mate and instantly falls in love, and is kidnapped. There are parts of this that seem very young adult as it is almost formulaic in places. But then you get steamy scenes and swearing that put it right back out of the young adult genre.
I enjoyed this story but it didn't blow me away. It was a case of being able to guess what was about to happen before it did. I was told about the connection between Merrick and Calista, and Ryder and Calista, but I didn't really feel it.
On the whole, this was an enjoyable read, full of magic and prophecy, but I don't think I'll be continuing with the series. I'm sure this will be the perfect book for other readers though.
