       Swept away into a court of magic and beauty, she discovers she is Tania, the lost princess of Faerie: the youngest daughter of Oberon and Titania. Since Tania's mysterious disappearance on the eve of her wedding five hundred years before, Faerie has been sunk in darkness and gloom. The courtly Lord Gabriel Drake, who Tania was once to marry, has found her and brought her back.

With Tania's return, Faerie comes alive again as a land of winged children, glittering balls, and fantastic delights. But Tania can't forget Anita's world, or the boy she loved there.

Torn between two loves and between two worlds, Tania slowly comes to discover why she disappeared so long ago. She possesses a singular magical ability and she must use it to stop a sinister plan that threatens the entire world of Faerie.

      I found this book to be ok. The author gave amazingly vivid descriptions throughout the book but at times I felt it was a bit too much. I feel as though more time was spent on creating this amazing land of Faerie than on the characters and it made the book drag a little. I kept waiting for some event to happen to keep the story moving along and it finally did but not until I was 3/4 done with the book. Once the event happened though the story finally moved at a pace I enjoyed and I finished the last bit of the book in one quick sitting. the book leaves off setting up for book two in this series and I am willing to pick up book two to see how this story continues as once we got past the descriptions of everything the story was good, had mystery, treachery, magic and true love. I would recommend this book to younger readers, I felt this was a little more younger  young adult than I normally read but  a decent read.

The Faerie Path:         3/5
Cover:                        4/5
Rating:                       PG
