Summary: (from goodreads) Diello and Cynthe have always believed their parents are too cautious. The twins expect things to be different on their thirteenth birthday. Their mysterious Fae mother has promised them that today they’ll be given magical gifts, and they’re planning to sneak off to the village fair. 

But nothing goes right. The magic isn’t what they hoped. Their human father won’t let them out of their chores. They’re forbidden to attend the fair and are sent on an errand instead. Then the day turns deadly as Diello and Cynthe are plunged into a lethal game of cat and mouse with old enemies of their parents. Suddenly there are secrets upon secrets to unwind. Who is friend and who is foe? And what have their parents been hiding.

First Installment of the trilogy The Faelin Chronicles has promises of an interesting fantasy adventure.  Diello and Cynthe are twins half breeds, born to a human and fae, that were expecting a special  celebration for  their thirteenth birthday. Their expectation for their magical gifts goes sour when forced to learn that   their parents had strict rules for very good reasons. Things go from bad to worse, when they are exposed to a lot of hatred and unfairness, which they had been sheltered from.  The life as they know it is no longer, and they are force to act as their own care takers as well as their little sister, sending  them into an adventure that unlocks a lot of family questions and secrets.
The story is action packed and full  of magic mystery, in other words a very exciting read. My only pep peeve is that you will have to wait another year to get answers to the questions it left unanswered.
