Callie knows a lot more about pain than she does about family. She's never belonged, at least, not until she falls through a portal into her true home. The beautiful faerie city of Eirensae doesn't come free. Callie must find her amulet and bind herself to the city, and most importantly, avoid the Fallen fae who seek her life. Seems like a small price to pay for the family she's always wanted.
Then she meets cynical and gorgeous Rowan, who reads the darkness of her past in her eyes. He becomes Callie's part-time protector and full-time pain in the ass. He has secrets of his own for Callie to unravel. What they don't know is that the future of Eirensae lies with them, and the once peaceful city is about to become a battleground for power.

I just finished Reflection Pond and I truly enjoyed it! In the past, I have shied away from stories about faeries (I've never been big on them), but this version drew me in. I read it in three days, so that should give you a hint. The world building is intricate and realistic, and I found myself jumping to guess the answer to certain mysteries. I had a couple of issues with some of the pacing, but they were sort of non-issues. (Things felt like they were moving too fast, but then, we were seeing through Callie's eyes, and things were certainly moving very fast to her.) I'm not a huge fan of the love triangle in any book, but this one hit a lot of good notes for me. The story is told through the eyes of Callie and Rowan. I was sympathetic to Callie from the start, but she took some time to grow on me. In the end, I did really like her. Rowan on the other hand....I think I grew kind of an unhealthy attachment to Rowan. I love his backstory, I love his mysteries, I love his sarcastic, broken, pain in the ass self! This was definitely a great YA fantasy book and I look forward to reading more about all of the characters introduced here!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a well-written story that I was able to finish in one day. I did find that some moments lagged, but not enough to draw my attention elsewhere. The characters were relatable and the storyline was well developed. I will be looking for more from this author in the future.
I just finished Reflection Pond by Kacey Vanderkarr and I highly, highly recommend the book. It was so good!! Below is my review on goodreads: I was completely blown away by how good this book was. I have a really hard time losing myself in books because I have a very short attention span, but Reflection Pond captured my interest from the first page all the way to the last. I picked up the book for the first time and read 100 pages of it in one sitting because I could not put it down. The world Kacey Vanderkarr created is so unique and fascinating. It captures your heart from the first page. I really appreciated her writing style. There weren't any parts of it that dragged on or seemed unnecessary to the story. From the first page you're in the reflection pond trying to decipher this beautiful world Callie found herself in. The nights I picked up the book to read myself to sleep, I remember squinting at the pages and being too tired to keep my eyes open but not being able to stop because I wanted to know what would happen next! If I tried to go to bed, I would pick the book back up and keep reading because the world captured me so completely. I would highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who has any interested in young adult fiction. I would love to see Reflection Pond because a movie series. I would be first in line to buy my ticket. The whole time I was reading it I kept picturing the movie and hoping one day to see it on the big screen. I want to thank the author for writing such a unique story and sharing it with the world! I'm excited to continue on the series.
