REVIEW: Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog


A captivating and witty dark fantasy that will have girls lusting after it.
Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.

I don't know why I took so long to read this book as it has been sitting on my shelf since it was released.  This is such a delightful story and I can't wait until Sleepless is released.  The author has a charming way with words and I can't wait to read more.

Morgan is such a likable and realistic teen and the story of how her BF and neighbor turns into a fairy is extremely believable, something that is hard to pull off sometimes.  I read this in one sitting and just adored it.  It always says alot when you just have to read the next page and that page becomes the whole book in one sitting.  More, please!


  1. Sounds good! I'll have to check Fairy Tale out-- and gotta love that cover! :)

  2. I really enjoyed this one too. Was made believable .

    A nice easy read :D
