Ambitious Edition: Fairy Tale

Title: Fairy Tale
Author: Cyn Balog
ISBN: 0312380968
Release Date: 6.23.09

The Usual Questions:

Is this the first in a series?
hard to tell... I don't think so.

What is the basic concept?

Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.
Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.

Is the cover art favorable?
Take it or leave it, but that's not what's important, right?

What are some of the author's other works?
I believe this is her first. According to a few sources, Cyn is the race and events manager for Bicycling, Running Times, and Runner's World magazines. Sounds like a woman after I Heart Monster's own heart, and a pretty cool job to boot.

Note: Cyn is running a contest that closes April 13th for a pre-release signed copy of her book. If you would like to participate, click here and it will take you to her blog post with more details. For objectivity's sake, I didn't enter this post into the contest... just feels wrong - I am really excited to read this book.
