Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers

Four sisters, three rules to live by, one big problem.

O'Connell Family Rule #1: Don’t let the Fae know you see them.
O'Connell Family Rule #2: Don’t talk to the Fae.
O'Connell Family Rule #3: Never, ever follow them.

Most people only believe what they can see. Gifted with the ability to see the deep, dark fae of Shadowland, Catherine Rowan Mary O’Connell would prefer not to. When the fae abduct her friend Maya, Cate breaks the sacred O’Connell Family Rules and sets a trap for the handsome fae who haunts her every step.

Rook, High Court Advisor to the Shadow King, has been following Cate since she was sixteen. When Cate reveals herself as one of the fabled “Seers”, Rook is stunned---she is one of the few that can permanently open the gates between their worlds. If he turns her over to the Shadow King, his court will rule the human realm.

Cate knows she has precious little time to find Maya. By midnight, the glamour of Mid-Summer’s Eve will fade, leaving her trapped forever in the Shadowland, but Maya’s abductor won’t give up the woman he’s mesmerized easily.

The midnight hour is almost at hand. Cate must choose: her freedom or her destiny.

I’ve been in a reading slump for the last few weeks. Every book I read just doesn’t pull mein. So, yesterday in the attempt to stop my reading laziness I decided to read Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers and WHOA this novella is amazing! FYI Shadowlanderis an ADULT read and that’s why I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it because I mostly read YA books. I guess I’m a little tired of the same old thing. Anyway, Shadowlander has everything. I promise. The author goes straight to the point, there’s none stop action and oh my goodness, Rook! She wrote the perfect male character there. The plot goes a little fast at times but Meyers doesn’t miss details. I love all the characters including Kallus. I don’t know why I like him so much but I’m hoping he’ll be in the next books. The only thing is that I wish I had the next book in my hands now because I can’t wait to read more about the O’Connell sisters.
