About Taylor Hunter
Taylor Hunter lives in Southwest Idaho. She shares her home with her elderly cats, who tolerate her. After several “wonderful years” of challenging college coursework, Taylor is now a full-time mechanical engineer.
But she is no less committed to writing epic adventure fantasy about the realm of the Fae. In addition, when she’s not writing or reliving her math and science glory days, she can often be found sketching storyboards for her next video project. She loves hanging out in the corner of bookstores with a graphic novel in hand. And she also loves watching reruns of Forged In Fire or the latest installment of John Wick.
Her debut novel, NeverSeen, was published when she was just 17 and won her “Top Idaho Author” and North American Book Awards in young adult and fantasy novel categories.
And now for something fun…
- I am a person to two cats, Parker and Albert. They sleep a lot. A LOT. Whenever I’m home, they love lap-sleeping. And I’m happy with that. 😉
- My favorite food is Pad Thai. Ice cream bars are a close second.
- As far as my favorite writers, well, I have a bunch of them. When I was little, my Dad read out loud all of LOTR and the Narnia stories. So, I’m very fond of them and their faith-driven storylines. Count me in as a Potterhead. And I’m an author in no small part because my Dad is also an author. I love his stories about gargoyles and teens “doing life near each other.”
- I want to return to Norway to visit my friends and Godparents. Then, off to France to see how much French I remember.

Too Smart, Too Strong, Too Much To Be Accepted
A coming of age fantasy adventure in fairyland. Nice descriptions of fairies and their lives and purposes. Seems like pre-teen and teen audience would be most appropriate. Some violence, strong emotions but no sexual content or bad language. As Emmaline comes to terms with how special and gifted she is, those who would use her talents and skills show up to either recruit or neutralize her. A good story dealing with some questions regarding religion, belief, and rebellion against the powers that be. Some funny and clever homages to modern culture. Some challenges with bullying, lack of confidence and self-acceptance. Well done.
I thought I would just quickly peruse through the first chapter of this book – and then pick it up for serious reading later when I had more time. I WAS CAUGHT and couldn’t put it down!! Incredibly good story and now I CAN’T WAIT for the next book in the series!! I highly recommend this book to everyone who has enjoyed the Harry Potter series. It’s THAT good!! – DeaW
