|Risin' Sun by H.D. Hunter
Lily Towell has never been one to follow the rules. She has an unfortunate
habit of disregarding anything that is considered proper and expected of a
young lady, despite coming from a wealthy family in the late 19th century
Great Britain. In fact, her preferred pastimes include daydreaming, not paying
attention in her lessons, and making a game of manipulating her younger
brother, Liam. Simply put, she leads a comfortable, albeit dull, life.
But her life is thrown into turmoil when she has an unorthodox meeting with
Jasper, a "homeless," self-proclaimed sorcerer from a different dimension.
Soon, Lily finds herself in a world very unlike her own, one that is fully
equipped with creatures she thought—or rather, hoped—didn’t exist. As if the
trauma of being in a place where humans aren’t at the top of the food chain
isn’t enough, Lily has a bigger problem: Jasper, the red-headed, freckle-
faced vagabond, is her key to getting home…assuming they can survive long
enough for him to remember the way.
Risin’ Sun is a dark fairytale full of magic and mischief, beauties and
beasts—and just a touch of nonsense.
