Boyden is a member of the Tuatha De
Denaan, and also of the in-between – part fairy born and
part mortal. When invaders come to his land and begin
killing his tribe, Boyden wants revenge. He has a
formidable tool at his disposal, a killer wind, but he would
rather die than use it.
Scota is a warrior princess and is part
of the group that invaded Ireland. But she doesn’t condone
all of their actions. When the captain captures Boyden and
tries to use him to find fairy treasure, Scota is moved to
help him. Instead, Boyden kidnaps her.
Both are strong-willed and proud, but
each will try to bend the other to their will. As they each
learn more about Boyden’s heritage, and each other, they
discover that they have finally found their equal in each
Boyden and Scota are two very consistent characters, and as
they fall in love, every step is completely true and
relatable. Ms. Gray’s prose is lyrical, which is fitting
for a tale about the origins of Scotland and Ireland’s
fairies. This is a fantastical tale of fairies, sentient
spirits, lust and love. Fans of fairy tales and romantic
history will love White Fells.
