Review: Fae (Fae Trilogy) by C.J. Abedi

The battle between Dark and Light is about to begin.
Caroline Ellis' sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn't until Caroline begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth of her heritage is revealed.
Devilyn is the only Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him. He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself.
Told from the alternating perspectives of Caroline and Devilyn, FAE draws on mysteries, myths and legends to create a world, and a romance, dangerously poised between Light and Dark.
On the back cover of this book, a reviewer stated that Fae was like Twilight. It isn't. It's much better! The characters are very well written and engaging. The plot is believable and realistic. And my favorite part, authors C.J. Abedi (yes, it's two sisters) took the lost colony of Roanake, myths of faeries, and the Norse gods, and created a story that incorporates all of the fun and creepy aspects of these subjects. Young love, rivals for Caroline's affection, the secret of adoption, popularity at school--all the fun of youth is also in this book. And the ending, ahhhh the ending. No spoilers here but it will definitely leave you crying:)
