Birds of Fae Book 1: The Princess and the Peacock by CS Johnson is the start of a new series by my fellow author and friend. This fairy tale journey is one of trickery, betrayal, and longing.
Just check out the summary,
Two memories burn within Kaipo’s heart — the death of his mother, which left him alone to die, and the arrival of Princess Mele, which gave him a new reason to live. Together with his adopted brother, Kaipo seeks out Jaya, the Fae Queen who lives on the Forbidden Mountain, in order to gain the beauty he requires to win Mele’s heart. But Jaya has other plans for the scarred outcast who climbs up her mountain
If that does not hook you, I honestly do not know what will. This novella is just what you are looking for in a fairy tale. It has magic, wonder, true love, betrayal, and an unexpected adventure.
I especially like the main character of Kaipo. The book does an excellent job with his arc, as he endures betrayal and a lesson on the nature of beauty. You do not want to miss it. If you forgot to get a friend or family member a gift, definitely pick this one up for that belated Christmas gift.
