This is not your average trip to Fairyland...
Selkie Stewart has just saved her quasi-boyfriend, Ben, from a fairy prison run by the Seelie Court. If they weren't the two most-wanted individuals in the Otherworld before, they definitely are now. Along with Ben and the rest of their ragtag group of allies-Selkie's ogre aunts; a wizard named Will; Ben's cousin Safford; and Kelsey, Selkie's best friend-Selkie is ready to embrace her destiny and bring the Court down. Until she hears the rest of her prophecy: Benedict le Fay will betray you, and then he will die.
Thank you Sourcebooks for providing me with a copy of The Boy With The Hidden Name through Netgalley.
The Boy With The Hidden Name starts right off where The Girl Who Never Was ended. Selkie was left by Ben and she is upset and angry with him for deserting her. She is also determined to figure the prophecy out and set things right. Selkie discovers how strong she is and needs to be through her search for the other 3 Fairies of the seasons.
My favorite new character came in the form of a handsome tall seductive Erlking. The Erlking is a friend of Will and he agrees to help them on their journey. There seems to be a budding romance between Kelsey, Selkie's best friend and Sanford. Will has been protecting Selkie from the fairies and continues to do so under very trying circumstances.
When Selkie is rescued by Ben she does not know how to feel but anger is definitely at the forefront. Then Selkie meets Ben's mother and she is not the nicest of fairies. Now back at square one realizing they have to find another way to locate the 3 fairies of the seasons. Selkie decides to trust her instincts and use the ability she has for finding things.
2 Fairies seem to be easier to locate but the 3rd and final fairy is not located and the battle between the fairy world and the human world comes crashing down at the strock of the clock. Can Selkie and all the others who have risked so much set the clocks back and fix the human world and bring harmony to the otherworld?
This book gave me everything I needed from the conclusion. I tore through the pages and could not put it down. Skylar Dorset made every character have so much detail that you either were in love, charmed or wanted to rip their eyes out. If you love fairy books then this book will enchant you from beginning to end. This is a must read and I am giving it 5 out of 5 stars.

About the Author:
Skylar’s first story was a tale of romantic intrigue involving two feuding factions of squirrels. Think “Romeo & Juliet” but with bushy tails and added espionage. She was seven.
Since that time, Skylar’s head has been filled with lots of characters and lots of drama. She is delighted to be able to share some of it with all of you now, because, honestly, it was getting pretty loud and crowded in there.
Skylar is a born-and-bred New Englander, which is why Boston was a natural setting for her debut novel, THE GIRL WHO NEVER WAS. Skylar shares her home with a cardboard cutout of the Tenth Doctor, lots of Mardi Gras beads from the time she spent living in New Orleans, and a harp she’s supposed to be teaching herself to play. She’d like to get a dog.
