August 14, 2007|by DARCY SHULL/Pulse Correspondent

"The Faerie Path" by Frewin Jones is about a girl who discovers she is not who she thought she was.

When Anita, a teenager living in London, is taken to the fairy realm, she discovers that she is the long-lost daughter of King Oberon and Queen Titania.

Since she vanished, and Titania tragically died afterward, the faeries' world has become lifeless. Upon her return, however, things brighten and flourish once again, for the first time in 5,000 years.

The girl's six elder sisters reveal to her a gift that only she possesses - the power to walk in both the fairy realm and Earth. They tell her to choose wisely, because she may only live permanently in one of the two. Torn, she first tries to get advice from her oldest sister, Eden, who lives alone and who is thought to be evil.

But Anita uncovers a twisted plot that will ruin the fairy world, and she sets out to stop it.

The characters in this book are described very well, so that it's easy to picture what's happening, and you can almost feel like you're a part of all the action.

"The Faerie Path" is a really entrancing book for anyone who enjoys a little bit of romance and adventure, and lots of fantasy.
