Book Synopsis:

Fae was once a flourishing paradise. Until Death turned greedy and destroyed it, targeting the creatures who inhabited it. Those who survived escaped to Earth’s realm, but Death wasn’t far behind . . . 

Olivia Finn is just another pixie trying to blend in among humans and hide from the death hounds who devoured her family. Clinging to the talisman that keeps her veiled from those who hunt her, she believes she is safe. . .. Until Death finds her and discovers she’s immune to its grip. 

Now that Olivia’s power is unearthed, she is sought by Fae who see her as their savior and stalked by dark entities compelled to destroy her. Can she trust the King of the Dead who has sworn to train and protect her? Or should she obey her instincts that warn he desires more? 

Olivia can no longer hide from Death. To survive, she must seek it.


My Thoughts:


Unearthed was the first book I've read by Cecy Robson, and I really enjoyed it! Olivia came from Fae, but had to relocate to earth (New York,) after it was destroyed by death.  When she and her friends are attacked by the Cu-Sith,(death hounds, a form of death that killed her family,) she discovers that she has unique powers that make her the only hope for her kind. She thought she lacked magical abilities, but while the earth's magic has clashed with the majority of magical beings, in others, it has altered it.  

The Grim Reaper, Ankou, or (The King of the Dead,) offers to train Olivia, so that she can hone her abilities, and become stronger and more powerful; in order to defeat Cathasach, the ultra powerful and sadistic leader of the Cu-Sith.  What starts as an unlikely partnership, quickly turns in to a close friendship, and feelings begin to grow between Olivia and the Ankou.  However, the Ankou has asked Olivia to release his soul from the torment that he has experienced for so long, in exchange for his help.  If she defeats Cathasach, can she destroy the soul of the Grim Reaper, when she is falling in love with him?

Unearthed was such a fun and fast-paced urban fantasy.  I loved encountering so many different magical creatures; pixies, nymph's, elves, leprechauns, fairies, garden gnomes, giants, banshee's, gargoyle's, dragons, and more! The dangerous tension of the ever growing threat of Cathasach and the Cu-Sith kept me at the edge of my seat. I loved watching as Olivia trained and learned how to use her magical abilities.  She was petite, but packed a powerful punch with her huge heart, courage, perseverance, and compassion to those all around her.  I loved her character!

The Grim Reaper was a character that I enjoyed getting to know as well.  He was extremely lonely, tormented, and ashamed of who he was, and what he had to do to survive.  However, Olivia brought out a fiercely loyal, attentive, and vulnerable side to him.  The interactions between these two were exciting, and had me eager for more!

As far as secondary characters went, my favorite was Jane, an extremely old and powerful hydra. She brought levity, and a ton of laughs to the story with her eccentric personality! I also loved the shapeshifting dragons, (Olivia's good friend, Frankie,) and (Stevie, a goth teen who had a huge crush on Olivia, and she had sworn to protect.)

If you're in the mood for a fun, fast-paced Urban Fantasy, with a variety of magical creatures, danger, a ton of laughs, and the beginning of an epic romance, I recommend you check out Unearthed!

Book Teasers:




Book Excerpt:


…in the Glen a nightclub where the Fae like to gather 

Lights flash and magical mist pours across the dance floor, allowing privacy to those desperate for touch. Fae aren’t plentiful, and neither are establishments for us to gather. That’s what makes the Glen fun. It doesn’t just bring my kind together, it frees us. No glamour, no pretending. We discuss magic and the old realm, curse Death for destroying it and celebrate our survival.
With a shimmy and a shake, lavender and silver wings sprout from Dahlia’s back. She stretches, relishing the feel of simply being herself. She winks at me, her glimmering lavender eyes and lips radiant. 
A drunk mountain troll stumbles between us. She releases my hand, allowing him through before clasping my hand and guiding us through the gyrating swarm of bodies. “Let’s have a drink, darling.”
I squeeze her hand. Fae are affectionate beings. In the human world, we cage our need to caress, embrace, and make love. It’s a way to keep our identities secret and another way to prevent Death from finding us. 
Bill’s broken glamour was a result of a stolen kiss. It revealed his form to a human and worst of all damaged his talisman. Our talismans remain the only way to hide from those who hunt us. Without them, it’s a death warrant with our executioners often seconds from being collected.
A banshee sprints away from the bar and through the swarm of Fae. With all the grace of a swan, she leaps into the air and straddles the male who entered behind us. “David!” she screeches. “Sorry,” she adds when we groan and cover our ears.
“David” loses his tiny accountant persona, morphing into a giant cyclops with a long blond Mohawk. He laughs, catching the banshee when her legs break free of his widening waist. 
She screeches. Again. The thought of that voice in the throes of passion makes me cringe. “David is going to need serious earplugs to get through the night,” I mutter.
Dahlia giggles, her laughter like wind chimes in the soft breeze. “Perhaps. But it will be worth it, darling,” she sings.
