That's it??? Cruel, cruel author. Seriously though I really loved this, the story was so interesting, even when I felt that the love story (and honestly, mostly Pete's dialogue) was becoming too cheesy, I just didn't care because I wanted to know what was going to happen. Also, sidenote, your use of italicizing certain words was disconcerting. I don't know if I'd prefer just less of it, or just in thought, but definitely something to take a peek at.
And seriously, you better be writing the sequel right now......

I did enjoy the book. As the plot unfolded and the characters developed my interest deepened. I did think that Cass remained a little too naïve about the feelings of Ian and Peter for too long. I would like to have see the story and the characters develop more fully since the story ended so abruptly.
Looking forward to a second book if one is in the works. :)

Thank you for reading!! I so appreciate the time you took and your comments. I do think Cassidy’s character could be deepened and there are some other things I want to hash out too. I have started a second book and really love where it is going but do feel a pull to rework some things in the first one too. Have a beautiful day! Peace, Meg

Well I thought that Cass would be a little more aware by this point. Since the mother has passed and the Grandmother apparently was aware of the fairies/sprites being after Cass as a child. But not only is she clueless about all of that, but she seems to be so naïve about life. I hope that her character picks up the pace a little. You can be shy, refined, chaste, and all of that and not be dumb and clueless.
I must admit, I want to know how this story will continue to unfold, so kudos so far. :)

I thought the premise was great and the plot was riveting! Some of the language was somewhat simplistic/juvenile. I suppose what I mean by that is when you're describing actions or some interaction (mostly between Pete and Cassidy), it sounds like an eleven year old is describing it, which is odd because every other aspect of your writing is very compelling. I also LOVED the ending, leaving it so open-ended and without much closure is bold, and I think it absolutely paid off (sequel coming soon?)
Overall I thought the book was great!!

So far I really like the mystery of the storey, from her grands reactions too her seeing fairies as a little girl & the fairies determination to have her, the way it started and now 11 years later, she walking into the unknown... I can't wait to find out what happens when she gets to her grands house and what's in-store for her from the ferries, I'm sure they're waiting on her return?

I really enjoyed it! I loved how wonderful Cassidy's friends were, and how there were no arguments between any of them. Cassidy was such a sweet and kind main character. I also loved how the author combined contemporary and fantasy in a such a unique way--keeping them separate at first and then tying everything together in the end. I want more!
