Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Moribund by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge @GirlyEngine @XpressoTours

Genevieve Iseult Eldredge
(Circuit Fae #1)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: September 12th 2017
Genres: LGBTQ+, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

Dark Fae. Romance. Evil Plots. High school. Our heroines could be in for the greatest adventure ever.

If only they could decide whether to kill or kiss each other.

High school sophomore Syl Skye is an ordinary girl. At least, she’s trying to be. School photographer and all-around geek, she introverts hard and keeps her crush on sexy-hot glam-Goth alt-rock star Euphoria on the down-low. But when a freak accident Awakens her slumbering power, Syl is forced to accept a destiny she never wanted—as the last sleeper-princess of the fair Fae.

Suddenly hunted by the dark Fae, Syl’s pretty sure things can’t get any worse. Until she discovers her secret crush, Euphoria, is really a dark Circuit Fae able to harness the killing magic in technology. Even worse, she’s been sent to destroy Syl.

With mean girls and magic and dark Fae trying to kill her, it’ll take more than just “clap if you believe in fairies” to save Syl’s bacon—not to mention, her heart.

Perfect for readers of romance, urban fantasy, fairy stories and LGBT.

My Review:

Syl Skye is just an ordinary high school sophomore photographer who had a best friend until the accident. Syl and her best friend were in a train wreck together. Her best friend saved Syl and became famous for it in their high school. Now they are no longer friends. Now her ex-best friend and her group of followers spend their time either bullying Syl or thinking of ways to bully her.

Sly just wants to get through high school one day at a time. Syl goes to school and works to help her mom pay the bills. She loves to read and listen to her favorite singer the famous Euphoria whom Syl has a secret crush on.

Syl soon learns that everything that her Glamma told her about the fae are real and she just happens to be a fair fae princess and is being chased by a dark fae princess that is trying to kill her. The dark fae princess tries to hide her identity from her but Syl is very slick she sees right through her disguise and knows right away knows who this dark fae is. Who is the dark fae that is trying to kill her? Why, none other than her crush Euphoria. Why is she trying to kill her? Well for the answer to that one you will have to read the book. But I will tell you that Euphoria is being forced to kill Syl.

Syl and Euphoria team up to fight against this dude that wants Syl dead. The thing is he keeps sending all these monsters after them to do his dirty work for him and kill Syl. But Syl and Euphoria make a good team especially with Syl coming into her own with her magic which she is just learning how to use.

Moribund is filled with lots of action adrenaline rushing monster fighting bloody gory awesomeness. Syl and Euphoria make a great monster fighting team and a great couple. I loved the world of the fae that the author created for Syl and Euphoria and I can’t wait to see where they take us next in Ouroboros the next book in the series.

If you like reading books that is filled with action, monsters and lots of fighting and the fae of course then I think you will love Moribund. 

Author Bio:
Raised by witches and dragons in the northern wilds, GIE writes angsty urban fantasy YA romance--where girls who are mortal enemies kick butt, take names, and fall in love against all odds.

She enjoys long hikes in the woods (where better to find the fair folk?), believing in fairies (in fact, she's clapping right now), dancing with dark elves (always wear your best shoes), being a self-rescuing princess (hello, black belt!), and writing diverse books about teenage girls finding love, romance, and their own inner power.

She might be planning high tea at the Fae Court right now.

GIE is multi-published, and in her role as an editor has helped hundreds of authors make their dream of being published a reality.
