 Emrys—a fiery, red-headed Fae—always embraced her life in the Highlands, far from the city’s draining technology, until she’s sent to London to rejoin the Faery Guard. But this isn’t any normal assignment—she’s sent to guard Prince Richard: Britain’s notorious, partying bad boy and soon-to-be King. The prince’s careless ways and royal blood make him the irresistible for the dark spirits that feed on mortals. Sweet, disheveled, and alive with adventure—Richard is one charge who will put Emrys’s magic and heart to the test.

When an ancient force begins preying on the monarchy, Emrys must hunt through the London’s magical underworld, facing down Banshees, Black Dogs and Green Women to find the one who threatens Richard’s life. In this chaos of dark magic, palace murders and paparazzi, Emrys finds herself facing an impossible choice. For despite all her powers, Emrys has discovered a force that burns brighter than magic: love


I'm not a huge fan of Fae stories. I've read a few, but I'm not Team Fae. So what made me download All That Glows? Well, the fact that it's centred in London and about the Royal family, even if it's  a fictional one.  Was it what I was expecting?
Yes and no.

Yes, to the fact it was interesting, the whole system of The Guard- Fae who protect the Royal family throughout generations, from The Green Woman, Banshee's, Black Dogs, and well, themselves. It was a fun take, and restoring back to Arthurian, definitely caught my attention, because I love anything to do with that.
