4. The number of times my delicate wings have been broken and clamped behind my back.
68. The number inked upon my skin, marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen.
87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned.
88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me.
Healthy. Cheery. Vivacious. All traits Rosalie has before becoming enslaved by the faeries to make an endless supply of pixie dust. Now that Rosalie has been traumatized by slave labor, extreme desolate conditions and multiple deaths, this hardened pixie is anything but. When this rebellious teenager attempts an escape, she’s isolated in cramped quarters until she learns her place. Just as she begins to let go of all that hope, she finds an unlikely friend in Jack, the faerie assigned to guard her. Interspecies dating is forbidden in the fae world, so their growing attraction is unacceptable. And even if Jack can find a way to free her, they know the prison is the only place they can truly be together.
Clean YA Fantasy.

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank the author, the publisher and the tour organizing company for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.
This really was a fantastic read and I really enjoyed it very much. It's an unique take on Fae fantasy where we got to get a glimpse of a pixie's life and also got to experience the world through her eyes and words. I love first person POV and I enjoyed it a lot in here.
Coming to the characters, well they were just awesome and well developed. My personal favourite is Rosalie obviously and I adored her strength and resolve. She is confident and can think a way out in dire situations as well. The romance is cute and I love forbidden romances so it was a treat for me.
I loved the writing style of the author as well. It's so descriptive and full of details that you will be able to visualize the entire story while reading it and this was really necessary to make the readers a part of this new and unique world that the author created so beautifully. Making the readers enjoy the story through Rosalie's POV really was hard to pull but the author pulled that up and made me really connected to Rosalie emotionally and my heart wrenched witnessing her miserable conditions.
I'm really looking forward to the sequel and really excited to carry on experiencing the upcoming challenges and opportunities that Rosalie would come along. A great read with a totally new and unique Fae world that will totally impress you and you'll find it hard to put this book down, it's so addictive !!! Enjoy guys !!!
