Product Information

Gemma  Fae Cross, a tough-girl amateur boxer whose fiancé is running for congress, has just made a startling discovery about herself. She is half faerie - and not just any faerie, but a tooth faerie!

A hybrid of fae and human, Gemma is destined to defend the Olde Way and protect the fae - who are incapable of committing violence - from threats to their peaceful and idyllic way of life, which must be maintained by distilling innocence collected from children's baby teeth.

But when a threat to the fae mission emerges, Gemma is called upon to protect her heritage, and become a legendary fae warrior... even if it means sacrificing everything she knows about being human!

Tooth and Nail is a very clever take on the tooth fairy mythology nicely wrapped up in an emotive urban fantasy.

Gemma Fae Cross has just discovered she's half fae, half tooth-fairy no less, and she's needed to save fae from a threat. She's a boxer, who's been training at the same gym since before her dad left, and these guys are her protectors, her safe place, so although shes all grown up and respectable now, this gym is like a homage to her anger filed teenage self, and to the violence of her human half.

The story is well paced, and well balanced, with several different elements combining to create a well rounded plot. From the self discovery, to the interaction with politician boyfriend, Avery, we get this added dimension. Not only is Gemma having to deal with this new world, but she's also in love with someone who's very much in the spotlight, meaning that she's often in the spotlight too; but if Bruce Wayne could do it...

There were times in this story where it almost got thrown across the room, not for what had happened, but for what Ms Safrey was implying WOULD happen. So despite an apparently rather straight forward and predictable plot, there were some great twists, and some emotional shots that came right out of the blue.

This is a very easy to read story that delivers a few laughs a few tears and a good ending, bug manages to avoid falling into the darkness that many urban fantasys of this style thrive in.

An excellent start to a series that should be interesting to see how it develops.
