Her magic breaks all the rules. He breaks all of hers.

Draybeth is broken. Her fairy powers don’t work, her magic is completely dysfunctional, and not even her bad attitude and soft heart can win her back into Fairy favor. Exiled from their land, she struggles to make a life for herself in the human world. But when her bar burns to the ground and she meets one of the Impassables–the devastating Lawman Barrett–things become even more of a struggle. An arrest, murder, and abduction challenge everything she’s worked for, and worse, the Impassable Lawman appears to be her destined mate. But darkness stirs deep within Dray’s heart, and she’s not about to drag the gorgeous lawman down with her.

Barrett never expected to find himself mated to a fairy, let alone one with such a wicked temper and a short fuse. Being an Impassable, he should be immune to fairy magic, but Dray’s magic burns through him like lightning, just as everything else about her ignites him, body and soul. The fairy’s power over Impassables threatens everything this new realm was built upon, and as a Lawman, Barrett’s job is to make sure those threats are eliminated. But his feelings for Dray make him question just where his duty lies.

Dray is a broken fairy. She can’t use any fairy powers and she feels the darkness growing with her. If her father doesn’t kill her, the dark will take her over soon. And then some dragon broad burns down her bar. It looks like her luck has left her, too.

This is the beginning of a new series for Ms. Baker and she’s created a fantasy world that has a lot of story possibilities. What I really liked about this story was the relationship she creates between a broken fairy and an impassible (one who is immune to magic). Fairies and impassables don’t have relationships. So how can he be her mate? Dray and Barrett meet after the fire–he’s a lawman. They both try to avoid each other and deny any attraction. You can guess how well that works.

As you watch the dance between the two destined mates, there is the beginning of another story line being drawn. The author throws in a soul eater that leaves the fairies a burnt out husk. There’s a cop who seems to be on the fairy side. And the fairy king is still determined to kill Dray.

This tale has lots of action and Dray and Barrett face a lot of danger. With so many people trying to kill them, you can’t be sure just how this is going to end. It’s not boring! The author grabs your attention in the first few pages and keeps until the last page. This isn’t the traditional fairy story and I liked that. Why not give the book a try and see what you think?
