To Dance in Liradon by Adrienne Clarke

Brigid and her father liked to walk in the forest.  It was almost magical there and she could find pretty flowers to take home.  One flower she chose to pick caused her problems, though.  The Faerie Queen appears and asks her who gave her permission to take the flower.  She answers her and is allowed to leave the woods, but is told the Queen will be back to get a favor...

Ms. Clarke and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me a copy of this ebook to read for review (thank you).  It has been published.  You can grab a copy on Amazon.

Brigid has no idea the village will begin to shun her because she had contact with the Faerie Queen.  She tries to tell them she hasn't changed but no one listens.  The faeries steal children and women from the village.  She might be a danger to them.

When Brigid finally turns seventeen, her mother presses her to marry the local miller, assuring her that he loves her.  Connell never expresses that in words and Brigid is not sure.  However, it may be the only way she can gain acceptance in the village.  She finally agrees to marry and then Connell disappears on a trip to the next town!

Faeries lie.  They can also take on glamor.  And they lust after Brigid because she is beautiful and has a touch of faerie in her.  When Connell returns and he's turned more romantic she's thrilled.  She doesn't realize it's not Connell...

This is a visit to the faerie world you won't forget quickly.  Brigid learns a lot about faeries and discovers she really does love steadfast, sincere Connell.  She has to defy the Faerie Queen to save him.  Will she survive?  You'll need to read the book to find out.

I enjoyed this read a lot.  Brigid has her problems, but I still was rooting for her.  She reminded me of me.

Adrienne will be awarding winner's choice of a Kindle touch, Nook Simple Touch, or a $100 Apple gift card, and one crystal Faerie necklace similar to what Brigid wore to the Faerie ball to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.

Thanks for the review - I really enjoyed reading this book. Ms. Clarke did a great job developing the Faire Folk in this story and bringing out a different side of the legends about them.

I haven't read about Faerie. I'd love to learn more about the mythology.
