Read in August, 2012

When Jenny was 10 years old, she and her brother Tom were taking a shortcut home past a forest and she saw the trees grab him, pull him into the ground and swallow him up. After seven years of therapy and life, she feels herself drawn to the forest again to put things behind her and go on. Instead, she crosses over into the realm of Faerie where her brother is known as the Piper and he serves the cruel Queen. Jack, a handsome young man, of course, tries to help her to leave the realm while she intends to stay there and find her brother and bring him home. The forest is beautiful, yet treacherous filled with magical and cruel creatures. Jenny falls in love with Jack and is determined to save both him and Tom. The story is a great read and kept me captivated, but I was not thrilled with the ending. It left too many things unexplained, mainly, what the effect on the forest realm was after all that transpired in the story. If you like the faerie/fantasy/romance genre, you will enjoy this book.
