For eighteen-year-old Rouen Rivoche, being a fairy princess isn’t about fancy parties and happily ever afters.

Rouen’s people are the dark Fae whose powers of lightning, thundersnow, and all things Winter make them cold, severe, and 100% intolerant of rebellion.

Too bad being a rebel is in Rouen’s blood.

Against tradition, she’s teamed up with Syl Skye, the sleeper-princess o

I have enjoyed this series with each book being better than the last but WOW, I really enjoyed this novelette (my favorite so far)! This series just took a big step up in my opinion. Looking forward to book 3. 👍😊

Action, adventure, romance and a bunch of cute kids who want to go to Chuck E Cheese. No, I am not kidding! GIE has an amazing sense of humor, in addition to everything else! Do not miss this!

I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley

I was actually kind of getting tired of this series before - it is definitely much more stereo-typically YA than most stuff I read - but this novella was actually a nice departure from the previous books while still keeping generally the same feel. For this one we actually get to spend most of the book Underhill in the dark fae realm and it was nice to get away from the high school setting and 'mean girl' high school villains from the earlier boo

I'm so glad I gave the series another chance because Dethroned was everything that I had hoped the second book would be and more!

In Dethroned the focus shifts from fighting the Moribund infestation and mean-girl, high school politics to the Dark Fae. Rouen's 18th birthday is approaching and she's ready for her father, the King, to make good on his promise to make her Queen. Unfortunately, her father has other plans and Rouen is forced to fight him for the crown.

While I appreciated the book's fa

Dethroned is a novella from the Circuit Fae series, and though it was short, it wasn't any less fun than all the other books. 


Now, I may be biased in my review because of a crush I may have on one of the protagonists (shhh!) but I assure you that this book really is pretty amazing!


Syl Skye and Rouen Rivoche are the most entertaining and fun characters! I love how the author so deftly writes both of their perspectives in such contrasting tones! While Syl is all warm and bubbly, Rouen is the embod

After they have a wonderful Christmas dinner with Syl’s mom Rouen is awakened during the middle of the night from dead sleep to the sound one of the most horrible screams she has ever heard. She awakes to find Syl in horrific pain and soaking wet. When she sees

Of course Syl and Rouen can’t spend even a Christmas in peace, as the dark king decides this is the perfect time to take out the fair heir and his own daughter.
This is a novella that goes between the latest book and the upcoming one, with Ro basically facing the same choice Syl did last time. No surprise she makes the same decision. What I didn’t expect was for all kinds of fairie kids to be so instrumental. If there’s one low point, it’s that for such a short book there’s so many mentions of ho

Put on your Dark Fae boots and dodge the Vorpal Sword, because Roue and Syl are back for another epic adventure you won’t want to miss. The excitement, valor and romance continue in Dethroned as Roue confronts her father in the UnderHollow while Syl risks exsanguination from a particularly nasty wound. We don’t want to spoil any of the thrills, but trust, us, you’ll be on the edge of your own Adamant Throne. If this is the first one you read in the Circuit Fae Series, you’re going to want to (a) ...more

It's Christmas time and Syl and Rouen will finally get a break to spend some time together. . . except the dark Fae have other plans.
When Syl is poisoned by a Redcap, Rouen must travel to dark Fae and stand up to her father. Is she ready to challenge him for the throne?

I really enjoyed this prequel and think it works well as a stand-alone as well. Most of the book takes place in dark Fae and you get to learn more about Rouen and her people. This book added a lot of depth and world-building to t

OMG...GIE did it again! DETHRONED is so much fun to read, and the fact that it's all about two girls having fun and falling in love? Total bonus! Pick this one up!

This series became an easy favorite for me.

I honestly tried to read Inimical without reading this first. But as I discovered previously, if someone would miss a single book in the series, there's that confusion and "lost feeling". So because of that, I ended up taking a step back.

Another amazing prequel by GIE that can pass off as a short story. BUT, almost follows on where Ouroboros ended. This is the book that would certainly make you pick up Inimical immediately. It shows a sneak peak on what

Dethroned took quite a different turn than I expected . . . and I loved it!

Most of the story takes place in Dark Fae, so it was really cool to learn more about Rouen's people. There is soooo much lush world building! I really hope to see more of some of the sidebar characters in future books.

In addition to learning more about the Dark Fae realm, I also enjoyed seeing Syl and Roue's relationship develop. Even though this book starts up where Ouroboros leaves off, I think it works as a stand alon

This is my favorite novella in the Circuit Fae series so far. We learn so much more about UnderHollow – the politics, races that live there, and of Rouen's father, the current king. There is a larger focus on Rouen in this novella, and that's definitely a plus for me! Rouen finds herself fighting her father for the crown, with the court divided on who should rule. Rouen ends up in prison with kidnapped dark Fae children while her father is slowly killing Syl (because he, of course, does not appr ...more

Dethroned is a surprisingly strong novella which forms part of the Circuit Fae series, falling between the events of the 2nd and 3rd novel. I would certainly recommend reading the novels in sequence if you want to have any idea of what is going on.

This fast paced read largely sheds the read world trappings of previous instalments, forming a mini adventure for Rouen as faces off with her Dark Fae father to save Syl's life. The novel brings their conflict to a dramatic ending, allowing Rouen time
