Brea Robinson is a prisoner.
Granted, her prison has gilded halls, servants, and an aunt intent on throwing a lavish wedding. A wedding for Brea. Fae marriages are unbreakable, everlasting.

As Brea barrels toward her forever prison in a marriage to a man she doesn’t love, the three Fae kingdoms are thrown into turmoil. But no matter how close Queen Regan’s enemies get, it won’t be enough to save Brea from the fate she chose.

Some sacrifices result in death. Others only make you wish for death.

Brea didn’t surrender herself to the powerful Fargelsi Queen for nothing. She saved her best friend and found the missing princess. She said goodbye to the man she loved so he could reclaim his throne.

Everything has a purpose, everyone has a role to play and if marrying the wrong brother is hers, at least she’ll help bring an end to this war.

Because Queen Regan O’Rourke might be family, but her rule is over.

It's time for a new generation to unite the Fae.

Book three in the Queens of the Fae Series, click now to be transported into a world where some love is nothing more than magic, some love is an unbreakable bond, and some love is nothing at all.

What a ride! Fae’s Destruction by M. Lynn, Melissa A. Craven is the final book in their series Queens of the Fae and picks up right where the last book left off so buckle up for an emotional rollercoaster from page one. I laughed, I cried, I raged, and yes, I even swooned. Fae’s Destruction is a nonstop, action packed, emotionally charged story that will leave you breathless by the end. Please note that this is book three and there may be minor spoilers to the previous books in the series from this point on. Read at your own risk!

“Brea Robinson is a prisoner.” Brea finds herself right back where she started, a prisoner of Queen Regan in Fargelsi. This time is different. Brea knows exactly where she is, who she is with, and why she is there. This girl is not the same that we met in book one. She is fierce and will do whatever is necessary to protect the ones she loves, even if it costs her own heart in the process. My heart broke for her over and over again with each sacrifice she made. As a result of her trade for Myles and Neeve, Brea is cut off from the world outside of Fargelsi. With no news of her friends and family, Brea has nothing but hope to cling to while her aunt plans a wedding to the wrong O’Shea brother.

“Douchey” Loch is now king of Iskalt. Everything he thought he’d lost as a child is now his again. But it isn’t all he wanted. He wanted Brea with him, ruling beside him. Instead, he receives word that she is married to his brother. Lochlan breaks my heart in this book. He is understandably hurt by Brea’s decision to save her friends, but he doesn’t fault her. Instead he begins strategizing how to save her. That is until the news comes that she married Griff. Now he’s lost, heart broken and defeated. I hated seeing him like this. But I’m not the only one. Brea’s friend Myles basically adopts Loch, and I love him for it. Now I see why Brea loved Myles so much. 

Griff is still not to be trusted in my book. I wasn’t sure what his long game with Brea was. Clearly she wasn’t okay with marrying him. Yet, Griff went through with it anyways and acted hurt that she wasn’t happy. What kind of guy does that?! Griff’s charm and looks have worn off from the first book. I really wanted to like him, but the authors gave me someone to dislike, even if it tore a piece of my heart to do so. 

The plot does not lag in this book. While book one set up the world and book two was nonstop action, Fae’s Destruction rules on emotions. Don’t get me wrong, there’s quite a bit of action, but the emotional rollercoaster takes center stage. I love the alternating point of view between Lochlan and Brea. This gives us a clear picture of what is happening in Fargelsi and the rest of the Fae realms which also reflects Brea’s internal struggle with her magic. 

Overall I couldn’t sit Fae’s Destruction down! I loved every word and did not want it to end. I’m hoping and crossing all my fingers for a spin-of series (Pretty please 🙏), featuring a certain character. It could work…I’m just saying 😉 If you are a fan of Fae, YA romance and fantasy, you are in for a treat. This series is beautifully written from start to finish. I enjoyed the ride, and I’m sure you will too.

About M. Lynn

Michelle Lynn fell in love with reading when she was a kid. Every kind of book gripped her imagination. As she got a little older, she got into series like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Currently, her favorite is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

Michelle is an escapist. She believes that a book can take you anywhere and get you away from what's going on in your own life. You can disappear inside the pages and become a different person. Growing up, this became more and more important for her as her life changed dramatically due to an illness. It started when she was young and got worse over the years. Reading is what helped her get through it. She's still getting through it but it isn't as hard, mentally, as it once was. Like reading, writing provided her a needed escape. Her dream is for her books to be able to do that for someone else. Life is hard but this just makes it a little bit easier.

Reading and writing aren't Michelle's only vices as she deals with the illness that has now become disabling. She's also an avid hockey fan. She lives in Florida but never misses a Columbus Blue Jackets game on TV.

Michelle also spends a lot of time with her family - parents, two sisters, 2 brother in-laws, and niece. She's also constantly surrounded by animals - 2 cats and a bird- that provide much needed comfort and inspiration.

She has a college degree in business, economics, and accounting but has to decide how to tie that to writing because that's where her passion lies now.
