Madly (Madly #1) by M. Leighton

Book Description:

Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is.

Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.

In order to save her home, the lives of her family, and all of humanity, Madly must learn to wield her exceptional powers and recapture the Lore before it’s too late and all is lost. But Madly’s only help are her two best friends and the Sentinel, Jackson Hamilton, that threatens both her heart and her destiny. Madly has loved Jackson as long as she can remember, but he is the one thing even a princess can’t have. Can she resist love to become the queen she was fated to be? Or can she find a way to have both?

This novelette introduces you to Madly and prepares you for the quest of a lifetime.

Christina's BookReview
In Madly you are introduced to the world Madly James belongs to. Madly is not your average girl. She is the princess of Atlas, the underwater home of her people. When Madly is sent to Slumber for an internship she is looking forward to enjoying her time with her friends on dry land. But she is about to discover that things are about to change for her. Not in a good way.

Her home is inhabited by The Lore, eight evil spirits from the fairytales we grew up reading. As they take over Atlas they will awaken their descendant and wreak havoc in Slumber. It is up to Madly to save her people.

Her only help? The arrogant, cold and undeniably gorgeous, Jackson Hamilton.

Jackson is her best friend’s brother and her new Sentinel on dry land. He is also the guy that she once had a major crush on. But years later he isn’t so nice to her anymore. Jackson invokes in her feelings that she is only suppose to have for her betrothed.

With the weight of her people’s lives on her shoulder and the increasing desire for her guard, Madly is about to realize that life is not all about fun. Sometimes you have to sacrifice yourself for the sake of the ones you love.

This novelette prepares you for the adventure that Madly is about to take us on. If you are a fan of M. Leighton which EVERYONE should be! :D Or a fan of love and fairytales', PICK THIS UP! As soon as I read the first page I was fascinated. I finished this in 2 hours and was dying for more. It is AMAZING! A series with a twist to our fairytales! What’s not to LOVE!

I can’t wait to read more!
