The Book Bee: Stay


Author: C.C. Jackson
Source: Received for review

Callie is shocked when she is ripped from her 
home in the middle of the night. She is taken to
a city that she never knew existed only to find
that she has a strange connection to her sexy 
captor. To top it all off, he tries to convince her
that she is not even human. She learns that she 
is actually a fairy. Not just any fairy, but a fairy who has been destined 
to become queen of the fairies.

The only problem is that the current queen is a cruel tyrant and Callie 
will have to fight for the title that she was meant for. She is not completely 
convinced that this is a life that she wants to live. She would love nothing 
more than to go back to being the normal human girl that she always thought 
that she was.

When tragedy strikes, Callie finds that she no longer knows who she 
can trust. She must learn to survive on her own in a harsh underground 

She finds herself dealing with the struggles of life and love for the first 
time. Two gorgeous guys, a bunch of new friends, and a whole new 
world. Will it be more than she can bear?

My Thoughts

Stay is a brilliant fantasy novel. C.C. Jackson does a brilliant job of 
setting and maintaining the scene throughout the novel. I was 
instantly transported to this world and was able to stay there 
for the whole novel.

All the characters have a purpose within the novel and each is 
described so vividly that they become alive within your imagination.

I did feel that parts of the novel where rushed and more time should 
of been spent on these areas. For example Callie's training and 
confrontation with the Queen, the build up was nice and flowed but 
then it seemed rushed and I feel more time could of been spent on 
this section within the novel.

Overall I did enjoy this novel and look forward to reading the 
next installment of Callie's adventures.

A copy of this novel was received for free and all opinions expressed
are my own through reading it.
