When fifteen-year-old Keelie Heartwood's mother dies, she is forced to leave her adored California home to live with her insane father at an unrealistic renaissance faire in Colorado. Once she and her escort Mrs. Talbot arrive they start their pursuit for Keelie's dad in the enormous faire. While searching, Keelie strays and ends up in a majestic fragranced herb shop, but before she gets to explore it, she hears the already angry Mrs. Talbot yelling for her. Once outside she meets many strange people including: mud wrestlers, a snobby, stuck-up fairy princess, an outrageously handsome prince, and of course her father, Zeke. Keelie and her longtime best friend start working on a plan to get her out of this bizarre medieval world filled with freaks-of-nature and back into her beloved state of California. While in the process of plotting her great escape, strange and mysterious things start to occur, and after learning the hidden secret that she's half elf she doesn't think she will ever get to return to California. Instead she'll be discovering the mysteries of the faire, fighting bad guys, and trying to win the heart of her knight in shining armor. So if she thinks she'll get to sit back, relax, and enjoy the faire, she had better guess again.

I really enjoyed the plot that the author, Gillian Summers, chose for this fantastic fantasy called The Tree Shepherd's Daughter: The Faire Folk Trilogy. This is one of my favorite books that I have ever read because it was a pretty "clean" book, it had a wonderful plot, and was an overall spectacular novel. I really like how the author decided to make this book into a series and it had a great ending that makes you want to know what will happen in the next story. I can't wait until the next book comes out and I want to read it ASAP! This is a must-read for all of the book lovers like me out there. I recommend this fabulous novel to everyone but mainly to those who are intrigued by fantasy.
