Sourcebooks Fire Virtual Tour: The Boy with the Hidden Name

* I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

Selkie is back from the Otherworld with nothing in mind but be a normal teenager. Ben had left her against her wishes and without a Le Fay, the veil to block the seelie court from entering into her human world will weaken day by day and minute by minute. A war is destined to happen unless Selkie and her friends find an enchanted book that will hold the answers to stop the war.  Other questions begin to surface and Selkie is just a clueless as she was as the day she found out she was half fay and ogre. Has Selkie's mother prophecy "Ben will betray you, and then he will die" come true? Where does one begin to find an ancient book? How do you save the entire world?

Although a bit slow in the beginning, I was never tempted to fall asleep. In 4 several short hours I finished this book in one sitting. A very rare occurrence has happened in which I prefer the second (conclusion) book to the predecessor The Girl Who Never Was. Every page was filled with unforeseen plot twists, adventure and romance. The plot just flew by the writing was great. characters were believable and relate-able.

When I was reading this, I kind of felt like I was watching a Scooby Doo: Where are you?  episode mixed in with the YA trilogy The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. I say this because the main character is super smart and has a unique mind when solving problems. Not to mention the setting is Beacon Hills which is also the setting of MTV's Teen Wolf. Overall, I would definitely recommend this to any faerie lover who prefers smart heroines, light romance and tons of action with twisted plot lines.

SKYLAR DORSET grew up in Rhode Island (where she still lives), graduated from Boston College and Harvard Law School, and has lived in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Washington, D.C. But she actually spends most of her time living with the characters in her head. She hopes that doesn't make her sound too crazy. Visit her at
