Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, Lgbt


Syl Skye. Rouen Rivoche. Star-crossed lovers who should be mortal enemies. This is the story of how they met.

A nightly excursion to DC. A goth-rock show. One innocent train ride. That’s all it takes for high school sophomore Syl Skye’s perfectly normal world to come crashing down.

Because unbeknownst to her, she’s a sleeper-princess of the fair Fae—a vessel of Fae power that has yet to Awaken—and there are dark Fae who want her dead, dead, dead.

Rouen Rivoche is one of those dark Fae. Bound to the Agravaine the dark Fae Huntsman who is dedicated to wiping out all sleeper-princesses, Rouen has no choice but to hunt Syl down and spill her blood.

But a chance meeting in a nightclub, a brush of their hands, a lingering look… Despite herself, Rouen is attracted to Syl. And when she lets Syl get away…that’s when their troubles really begin.

After all, every couple has their issues, right?

My Review:

Syl Skye sneaks out with her best friend Fiann and their squad to go see her favorite goth-rock star Euphoria perform. Syl has a crush on Euphoria and will risk her mother’s wrath to see her play.

After the show is over they catch the train back to their hometown. Syl wakes to people screaming and yelling and the screech of the train as it is turning over and over and falling down, down, down. After the train finally stops Syl realizes that Euphoria is responsible for wrecking the train by using magic. What Syl doesn’t know is that Euphoria didn’t have a choice she was forced to do what she did.

Euphoria is hunting the sleeper-princess and she keeps asking Syl if she is the sleeper-princess but Syl has no clue what she is talking about. Euphoria was sent to kill all the sleeper-princess.

Derailed is filled with so much action that it will grab a hold of you right from the start and you will be lost in its depths from beginning to end. I have fallen in love with the world of the Moribund, the Circuit Fae and the Sleeper-Princess and can’t wait to devour more from this world.

I am so glad that I got this opportunity to read about how Syl and Euphoria met and how the sleeper-princess awoken. Come join Syl and Euphoria on their epic journey through the world of the Moribund and Circuit Fae and watch them as they light up the world together.
