A member of the Dark Court, Vancia has spent her life among humans—together but separate, hiding in plain sight. Now Pappa says it’s time to put her glamour to use against the unsuspecting humans and worse, agree to an arranged political marriage with the reclusive Light Elven prince.

Amy Patrick knows exactly how to mess with my emotions.

The Sway is a brilliant novella that focuses on Vancia, Lad’s proposed bride-to-be, and takes place before and during the last few scenes of Hidden Deep. (You can find my reviews of Hidden Deep and Hidden Heart here and here).

I love Vancia – so much. She is just such an awesome character who was not flushed out at all in the first two installments of the Hidden trilogy. I loved her perspective and I wish that I had read The Sway before Hidden Heart. I just- she is absolutely amazing.

I also loved finding out what Davis was actually like. He’s mentioned in the first two books of the trilogy, but this is the first time that we actually met him. It was… Interesting. Let’s just say that I am certainly not a fan.

In Hidden Deep, I shipped Ryann and Lad; in Hidden Heart, it was Ryann and Nox; and now… I’m conflicted. I really do love Ryann and Nox, but then after reading The Sway, I’m partial to the idea of Nox with Vancia and Lad with Ryann… You could say that I’m somewhat of a mess right now.

I would like to give a huge thank you to Amy Patrick, the author of the Hidden trilogy, for gifting me with a copy of this book in the anthology Faery Tales: Six Novellas of Magic and Adventure.
The Sway will be available for individual purchase after June 15, 2015.

Be sure to check out this series and let me know your thoughts! Who do you ship? Have you wound up as conflicted as I?
