Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy


Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.

Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.

But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony's dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it's literally part of her somehow.

And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past...and discovers her mother didn't leave to start a new life somewhere. She's trapped in the hidden world within the valley.

Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love.



I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 

This was an exciting and action-packed urban fantasy set in a small town where auras exist and the balance of the world depends on spirits.
Briony has no memory before she was ten. Her mother has disappeared and when her grandmother falls ill, she is sent with her best friend to Firefly Valley. There she meets Alder, who has a deep connection to the valley and the powers hidden within.

I loved Lindsey's writing; it was fast-paced filled with amazing and colorful descriptions and the humor between the scenes made the plot lighter. The romance was slow and sweet too while Briony was brave and dealt with everything like a champ. It could easily be an anime series or an animated one!
