I wasn’t the sort of girl who believed in fairytales, let alone tales about faeries. But that changed the day Faeries came to my small town and Hunters rose from their graves.  
On that fateful day, I received a book, a peculiar collection of myths and legends. Turns out it was so much more than stories. And just as I was on the verge of unlocking its secrets, it was stolen from me by someone I called a friend.
Now, I don’t know whom I can turn to, whom I can trust. All I know is that there are two sides, and I am straddling the great divide because I am both Faerie and Hunter. And although I swore I would never choose, I am slowly falling for one of those sides… 
Fans of Karen Marie Moning's Fever series will adore Wildenstein's Lost Clan series.  
i'm ready for the next book!

I hope you still remember my fangirling review of Rose Petal Graves. You don't? You didn't read it? Let me give you a brief rundown: (1) fictional Native tribe + faeries, (2) OMG that straightforward heroine that I sympathize to, (3) that romance (OMG that romance! not my usual thing but i still fangirl!), (4) the bantering between Catori and Ace is priceless also makes me love Olivia Wildenstein even more!, (5) also, did I mention Kajika?

Now let's get to this second book!

Rowan Wood Legends started where Rose Petal Graves left off. It's the war between the Faeries and Hunters and Catori is caught in the middle of this mess. This was a really quick read which is a super plus for me! It's the excitement, I'm telling you. I don't usually read fast but when I'm just caught up in a big war betwe-- I mean, when I'm just caught up in a fantastic writing and exciting events, I can't help but I just read non-stop.

Catori's development on Rowan Wood Legends is highly recommendable. She's a fantastic heroine who's caught up in the huge pile of badass heroines. But you see, Wildenstein developed Catori into a heroine you'll fall in love even more. I like how she's more driven to finding out who she really is. She's more mature, stronger, and more determined to fight and bring peace to the people she loves.

OVERALL, Rowan Wood Legends is a beautifully written fantasy novel. It's a quick read, exciting, and has great character development.

about the author
Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree. 
When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks). 
Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
