Do you know the Scions of the Shadows?

I feel in love with the Faire Folk trilogy, Tree Shepherd's Daughter, Into the Wildewood, and The Secret of the Dread Forest by Gillian Summers. I couldn't wait to read the next trilogy, The Scions of the Shadows. I just finished reading the first one, Shadows of the Redwoods.

In the first trilogy, we met Keelie aka Keliel Heartwood in a difficult and new time of her life. Her mother had just died and she is being shipped off to her father that she doesn't even remember. The twist is where as Keelie thought her parents were divorce and that her father just never wanted her, they weren't. Big thing for a girl to find out, that her mother had lied to her about a pretty big party of her life, such as Keelie is half ELF.

In Shadows of the Redwoods Keelie is getting used to her role as a tree shepherdess, and half elf, and oh yeah the last shock that she's also part fairy from her mom's side. She's trying to figure out her relationship with her elf boyfriend Sean, and trying to juggle her normal life before she found everything out and now where trees talk to her. In this book we find out that apparently the elves were wrong and goblins still exist. And Keelie is part of a goblin prophesy and learns to use her dark fairy magic to help the trees of the Redwood forest.

If you love the Ren Faire and like the idea that maybe most of the people working there are fairies or elves, this is a great series to read. It's a hard to put down book once you get started. I definitely recommend it.
