A Mysterious Letter.
A Deadly Discovery.
A World Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen.
All Daisy Darling wanted was to be a writer. What she got was more than she bargained for. As it turns out, the quaint little town of Sea Salt, California houses more than adorable cottages and huge redwood trees. Beneath the coastal charm rests a strange world where wizards, fairies, time-altering portals, and dark magic looms.
A world where memories can be your greatest currency–and weapon.
A world where you can never reclaim what’s been taken from you.
After stumbling into the mysterious world, Daisy’s memories begin to rapidly disintegrate, but she doesn’t even know she’s losing them. As if things couldn’t get any worse, Daisy learns she is the only one who can save herself.
Daisy’s very identity is at stake, but the odds aren’t in her favor. Can she discover the secret to win back her freedom before it’s too late?
I added this to my TBR list because the main character’s sole dream was to be a writer, and that was something I could relate to. I initially liked Daisy, and I think she deserved better supporting characters (I did like her until she shit-talked cats grrrr). Her father is supposed to be sympathetic, but he comes off as a selfish dick wanting her to take over the shop so that he can hunt for Utopia while she puts her dreams of going to London on a hold. What kind of parent would do that to their child? It’s bad enough he tries to guilt her into staying in order to continue the family business when that’s not what she wants, but then he decides he’s going to foist the shop off on her while he goes on an adventure.
