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.

Cindy's Review:
At a Glance/The Cover:  
The cover has a mysterious feel to it. Twilight's mysterious tree. Although I'm not really into reading about fairies and the Fae, I read this for the romance. Because it sounded so cute. And so sparkly. And I love these romantic YA fantasies. 
The Characters/My Opinions:
This novel does have a new plot twist compared to the other fairy stories. Instead of Caroline being the daughter of the summer king, I forgot his name. Orion? Umm. That's the Greek thing. I'll search it up later, or something, she's the daughter of Virginia Dare. New, right? Well, there are all kinds of stories surrounding the Lost Colony, why not make something magical out of it? 
Devilyn, the son of the Dark king and the Light princess. I've seen this concept in stories before, but not too much of it, so it's still fresh to read about this. Although Caroline's the main character, I would still prefer everything to be in Devilyn's POV. Although different POVs gives you both sides of the story, I still prefer books to only have one POV. Unless each character are really different. Like their personality and attitude is unique and all. For this novel, it's so so. If I had just paid attention to the person talking and not their surroundings, then I probably couldn't tell which POV it is. I don't really like those because the characters are too similar and it will get confusing if it is not labeled. 
Back to Devilyn. If it was a POV I'll choose, it'll probably be Devilyn, because he has all the information. There are a lot of concepts on the girl knowing nothing. And then this guy comes knowing everything. It's always the girl's POV, so maybe it'll be nice to switch things up. 
Overall Thoughts:
Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Caroline and Devilyn's romance was magnificent. I also thought the twister ending was a really great idea. It spiced things up quite a bit. :)
The Rating: (1-10): 7.5~
