When Callie Rycroft wakes to find purple flames flickering on the ceiling, she believes she’s still dreaming. But soon she’s forced to accept that she has magic―a special magic that grants her entrance into the Faery Realm.

For centuries humans have been banned from Faery, but dangerous times call for dangerous measures. Declared Champion by the Faery Queen, Callie is assigned a Guardian, and tasked with finding the Cordial―a magical elixir needed to keep the portal to the Faery realm a secret from humans.

The upside? Reece Michaels, the boy she's been crushing on for years, is her Guardian. Callie hopes that, by spending time with Reece, he'll start to see her as more than just his best friend's sister.

The downside? She's in a race not only against time, but against another Champion, and a rogue Guardian―a Guardian who stands to threaten her developing relationship with Reece.

Magic, mistaken identities, and hidden agendas are the least of Callie's worries when she learns that the Cordial requires a sacrifice. Will Callie be willing to risk everything―even Reece―to complete her task as Champion? Or will she let the portal open, and doom both realms?

If you're into fairy tales, this is a good book to try out. I do love stories when a person from our world is suddenly thrust into a completely different one with a whole new mission in life. It gives us all hope for a more exciting life full of adventures. Callie has been chosen to become Champion by the Faery Queen and now has a guardian. Her brother's best friend - her foster brother - who she's liked for quite some time. We get the sense of mystery at the start of the book, a feel of some normality in this girl's life before odd things start to happen.

Callie is shown as just a regular girl but I do love it when a character finds courage. She becomes that strong willed female with smarts, and they're always great to read in a book. 

The book was fast paced, the action being introduced quite early on into the story and before we know it, she's in the Fae world and her adventure begins, I'm never a fan of books that are slow so this one was good for me.

If you're into fae and the supernatural, I'd give this one a read. It's interesting from start to finish, some great characters and a new take on fae magic.
