Crow's Rest (Faerie Crossed #1), by Angelica R. Jackson (author), Brenda Scott Wlazlo (narrator)

Crow & Pitcher Press, August 2018

Avery Flynn arrives at her Uncle Tam's house, for the long summer visit that has been part of her life since she was a young girl. She's now in her late teens, and late last summer, she and her old friend, Daniel, took the first hesitant steps toward romance. She's hoping they can pick up where they left off.

But strange things have happened, and Daniel isn't Daniel anymore. At first she just thinks he's changed. Then she thinks--this really isn't Daniel. It's someone else in his body, and she needs to get him back.

Even once she's reached that conclusion, what's really going on is stranger and more frightening that she thinks. She's about to discover that the world of the Fae is real, and dangerous.
In her quest to rescue Daniel, Avery learns startling things about her father, her uncle, her own mental health conditions for which she's been treated and medicated most of her life. Her background isn't what she thinks it is, and her father and uncle aren't who she thinks they are.

Avery learns to understand herself, and learns a lot about judging character--of both humans and Fae.

Most of all, she faces a dangerous test, when she finds abilities she didn't know she possessed, and has to decide how to use that power to deal with those who have helped or harmed her.

I don't think I'm doing this book justice. I found it much deeper and stronger than I expected. Highly recommended.

I received a free copy of this audiobook via Authors XP Elite Readers, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
