I LOVE the Abby Sinclair books! I bought the first one, A Brush of Darkness last year because the synopsis grabbed me, an enchanted ipod? a miniature unicorn living in her underwear drawer?! lol So, it got my attention and held it. I devoured Abby’s first adventure with the fairies and discovering her gift and read the second A Sliver of Shadow last spring… It ends on a cliff hangar!!! argh! 😛 So, the 3rd book in this series is out today and I LOVED the book. Click HERE for my review. If you like strong, developed, interesting world building, complicated characters and lots of snark, pick up Allison Pang’s books
A Trace of Moonlight

The fog eddied from the darkness to cocoon me in a soft haze. Something niggled at the back of my mind as I glanced down at my bare feet. They were swallowed below my calves by the mist, but the crunch of sand under my toes felt familiar. The hiss of waves slapped against the edge of a nearby shore.
The rolling scent of brine slipped past on a tattered breeze. Drawn toward the sound of water, I pressed forward, an uneasy chill sending clammy fingers skittering over my skin.
Wrapping my arms around my shoulders, I realized I was naked.
And yet a moment later, a silk dress draped over my limbs, falling to midcalf. It should have felt strange, to know the merest of thoughts took shape here . . . but it didn’t. My feet brushed the edges of the wet sand and I paused. I could see nothing beyond the darkness, but the warmth of the water lured me, beckoning with a soft whisper.
Flickers of memory flared up and slid away, the barest hint of scales and a cradle of blue luminescence taking form, but I shook my head and the thought swirled out of reach. Ridiculous idea, anyway. I’d never even seen a mermaid.
Another step and the foam crested past my ankles.
