This one seems to have been around for awhile. It’s even been released under a different title. And the plot? Also different! Check it:

“Don’t do it, Annika,” he taunted. His eyes were no longer bright and charming but dark and intense, yet they still twinkled. He was tempting, but was he harmful?

Aspiring rock star Annika Brisby thinks she knows where her life is going until she steps through a broken portal that leaves her stranded in a realm of fairies, vampires, and other mythical beings. Unable to return until it’s repaired, she’s rescued by wood nymphs who believe her sudden arrival is no accident. After being taken in by a prominent family of elves, Annika finds herself struggling to resist the seductive spell of their youngest son, Talvi. Equal parts arrogant and alluring, the notorious heartbreaker seems like the perfect distraction for her homesickness. Her new friends warn her that she’ll probably regret ever laying eyes on him, and what begins as a casual fling quickly burns too hot to handle. By the time Annika learns the consequences of their forbidden trysts, Talvi’s already under her skin and dangerously close to her heart. But on the journey home she discovers that there’s a mountain of secrets that he’s not telling her, and Annika can’t help wondering who’s really in danger.

* Previously titled Balkan Magic, The Misadventures of Annika Brisby

Long before I met Susan, I read a Rock Fiction book that involved fairies and a war between factions. I don’t remember what it was, but this makes me think of that. And I know these aren’t the same book.

The question, which is our usual question, is whether or not Annika’s rocker status has any bearing on the story, or if that’s just a detail included to make her look cool.

Only one way to find out, although if anyone’s already read it and wants to write a review, we’d be glad to post it!
