Nineteen-year-old Karis has been blind since birth, but for some reason, she can see through the wall of smoke that separates the human lands from those of the Faeries that rule in grand courts on the other side. Most of the time, the only thing she can see on the other side of the wall is the swipe of a tail or the trailing of a bony hand along the surface. But one day, a handsome faerie appears and sweeps her away into his world—a world that is being ravaged by an evil so dark and deadly, she fears she may never see her home again. Loftin is a bounty hunter and he has been searching for Karis since she went missing from the Court of Ash. He needs to return her and collect the ransom. But the longer they travel together and the more he teaches her about what she is now able to see, the more difficult he finds the thought of letting her go. A fiery passion ignites between them, but with a monster tracking their every move, they must find a way to reach the Court of Ash before it kills them both.

I needed to make myself forget how good it felt to be in his arms. They might be the most dangerous place in Faery. Especially for my heart. 

Who loves fairy tale retellings? This gal!! I am head over heels for them, especially when they are written by Bond. She has this incredible gift and knows exactly how to tell a story and tell it well. 

When I started GLAMOUR OF MIDNIGHT I wasn’t sure how it would all tie into the Snow White story we all knew from our childhood. It was definitely different than how I thought it would play out. But it played out perfectly. Not even halfway in and I was in love with all things Faery and of course, all things Loftin. 

Word to the wise...be careful who you trust and who you care for in this story. Things are definitely not as they seem in Faery and you may end up feeling betrayed for a short time. I know I was. But in the end, I was more in love with this story than ever and actually prefer Bond’s retelling more than the original. I mean, there are faeries. I love faeries. 

And once again, as with RICHES TO RAGS, I would love to see more come from these characters. I got attached rather quickly to them and with how it all ended, a sequel could easily form. 

Enchanting, alluring, and bewitching, GLAMOUR OF MIDNIGHT was everything YA fantasy should be. And Loftin and Karis are forever etched into my heart. 5 Stars!
