Jessamyn Fawn is torn between her two lives – that of a librarian living in the mundane confines of suburbia and her secret life as Faerie Priestess. Her work within the Faerie Ring takes a new turn after a Beltane ritual, which leads her further and further into the Faerie realms – and to a spiritual and sensual awakening that threatens to unravel Jessamyn’s everyday life. Jessamyn realises that in order to truly be herself she must find a way to bring these seemingly opposing worlds together.
The Kiss of Two Worlds is Faeriecraft author Alicen Geddes-Ward’s first novel. Definitely an adult fairy tale, it is particularly compelling for anyone who has ever had to conceal the secret heart of themselves. The evocative and lyrical writing directly engages the reader, drawing you into Jessamyn’s world and allowing you to catch a glimpse of her thoughts and feelings. Anyone who practices Faeriecraft would be well advised to read the book for its many descriptions of rituals and experiences. However you needn’t be a practitioner to enjoy this entertaining and thought provoking novel.
