Rekindled

Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
“If you like reading about the fae, other realms and watching two bada** chicks fight then you will love this series! – The Avid Reader
It’s good to be queen. Except when it’s a total disaster.
Syl Skye, newly crowned Queen of Fair Faerie, would be psyched to be the ruler of her Summer realm, except for two things.
First, her girlfriend Rouen Rivoche became Queen of Dark Faerie, the Winter realm. That would be great except the Winter realm’s always been at war with Summer. By tradition, that makes Rouen Syl’s mortal enemy. That said, love can break past old hatred, right? Especially with a new foe about to attack them both.
Ah, no.
Which brings us to Syl’s second problem. Rouen’s under a dark spell and doesn’t remember Syl, their lives, their love. Worse, if Syl doesn’t break the spell by the next new moon, Rouen will forget her forever.
“Fast paced, full of action, never a moment of bore! Strongly recommended!” – Annarella, Goodreads
To defeat their foe, it’ll take two soul-bound queens whose hearts and minds act as one. Trouble is, no one has ever broken the dark spell Rouen suffers from.
Good thing Syl isn’t the type of queen who gives up easily.
Don’t miss Syl and Roue’s adventures in REKINDLED, the new prequel novella to NEMESIS, Book 4 of the Circuit Fae
Don’t miss out!
Perfect for readers of romance, urban fantasy, fairy stories and LGBT.

My Review
 Rekindled is part of the Circuit Fae series, and it's also a prequel to the upcoming fourth book, Nemesis. If you haven't read any of the previous books in the series, you'll probably want to do that first before tackling Rekindled.

Syl and Rouen, now both queens of their respective Faerie realms, have even more challenges to face in this book. Not only do they still need to try and find a way to fix their kingdoms, but Rouen is currently under a spell that made her forget everything about Syl. Instead, she's busy focusing on her music career with her new "manager." Said manager, though, isn't who she seems to be. 

Syl has to try and figure out a way to break the curse Rouen is under before it's too late, and she'll do whatever it takes to do it, too. Never mess with a soul-bonded pair.

I really enjoyed this little novella, and it made me even more excited to dive into Nemesis. I've loved this series ever since I took a chance on Moribund. I love the banter between Syl and Rouen, as well as the romance. Their love for one another is something most people can only dream of. I think that's what makes the stories so fantastic. It's like a Romeo & Juliet type thing, but without all the depressing death and stuff. 

Syl is extra-mega determined to find a way to "cure" Rouen in this book, and it just makes you cheer her on even more. You want her to make Rouen remember. You want the pair of them to get back to repairing their kingdoms and making things right. But the battle to do so has only just begun.

I also liked that we get a little bit more of Syl's Glamma in this one. She actually shows up in the beginning and the end, and I'd love to see more of her in the rest of the series. Fingers crossed!

Overall, Rekindled is a fast-paced, exciting novella that will have you eagerly awaiting the fates of Syl and Rouen. The ending, though... Well, I won't spoil it, but let me tell you, it made me almost want to scream and throw my Kindle at the wall. It also made me even more anxious for Nemesis now.

I'm giving this one 4.5 stars. Check it out!
