"Anyone and everyone who enjoys fantasy, gaming, a great story, amazing characters, incredible writing, worlds that are so alive they don't stay within the pages - MUST read this. If you haven't started this series yet, do not wait another second. You won't regret it!" - The Crooked Word
Feyland is the most immersive computer game ever designed, and Jennet Carter is the first to play the prototype. But she doesn’t suspect the virtual world is close enough to touch — or that she’ll be battling for her life against the Dark Queen of the faeries.
Tam Linn is the perfect hero — in-game. Too bad the rest of his life is seriously flawed. The last thing he needs is rich-girl Jennet prying into his secrets, insisting he’s the only one who can help her.
Together, Jennet and Tam enter the Dark Realm of Feyland, only to discover that the entire human world is in danger. Pushed to the limit of their abilities, they must defeat the Dark Queen… before it’s too late.
RAVE REVIEWS for FEYLAND:
"Jennet was a character that I fell in love with instantly. She is a girl who loves video games, has a great sense of competition, and is just tough enough without being overbearing." -- 5 Star review from Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile
"5 stars! If you like faeries, a touch of sci-fi and old ballads, this is definitely the story for you." --Watercolor Moods
"Feyland was such a quick and engrossing read I couldn't help but read it in one sitting! It flowed seamlessly and was so vivid I felt like I was right there in the dark realm. It's packed with action, magic, and of course faeries! Does it get any better than that?! Nope, I can't wait to read the rest of this series!" -- Book Addict
"With a fresh twist on the faery lore, Feyland: The Dark Realm will find its way into your mind - and your heart. Forget that this is a faery book. It's more than that. It's the story of a boy, a girl, and their brilliant strength." -- The Reviews News

Jennet Carter escaped the dark faeries of Feyland once. Now, fey magic is seeping out of the prototype game, beguiling the unwary and threatening everyone she cares about.
Tam Linn may be a hero in-game, but his real life is severely complicated. Still, he’ll do whatever it takes to stop the creatures of Feyland, even if it means pushing Jennet toward the new guy in school—the one with an inside connection to sim-gaming… and the uncanny ability to charm everyone he meets.
Despite the danger, Jennet and Tam must return to Feyland to face the magic of the Bright Court—and a powerful new enemy who won’t stop until the human world is at the mercy of the Realm of Faerie.
