Review: The masquerade, an alter, and a fairy

Kristin D. Van Risseghem grew up in a small river town in Minnesota with her parents and older sister. And after receiving a double Bachelor of Science degree from Winona State University in Paralegal and Corrections, she worked as a Paralegal for various law firms around the Twin Cities for 14 years. Then she left the legal field and is now a Senior Buyer for a technology company.

Currently, Kristin lives in Eagan with her husband and two Calico cats. She also loves attending book clubs, going shopping, and hanging out with friends. She has come to realize that she absolutely has an addiction to purses and shoes. They are her weakness and probably has way too many of both.
In the summer months, Kristin can usually be found lounging on her boat, drinking an ice cold something. Being an avid reader of YA and Women's Literature stories, she still finds time to read a ton of books in-between writing. And in the winter months, her main goal is to stay warm from the Minnesota cold!
Kristin's books are published by Kasian Publishing.

Frustrated with her extravagant duties as a Summer fairy, Sidelle Amistad is desperate to prove she can be more than a petty princess. The accidental capture of Winter fairy, Finnegan, looks like the ideal opportunity—until Sidelle and Finnegan fall in love.

Knowing her love for Finnegan is forbidden, a heartbroken Sidelle searches for deeper meaning in her eternal existence. Her pain leads her on a quest to help the humans … in a desperate fight against Hell itself.

My Review:

Risseghem never fails to entertain me. We got to meet Sidelle earlier in the first book of this series, but it works amazingly well as a standalone. I was so happy to see more of Sidelle's backstory and see the extent of her character development up to the point until the first book began.

I really admire when an author can make a book stand totally by itself and still have it tie so intricately with the overall "big picture" of the series; reading this book didn't feel at all like a sidestory, as I thought it might, but added to the overall plot and made me excited for the next books.

I would definitely keep my eye on this author and see what more she brings out.

My rating: 5/5
