Fallen Snow

Athena Jackson has found herself in a predicament—she is twenty years old, pregnant, and stuck in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend, Silas. When Silas finds out about the pregnancy, he demands Athena end it and forces her to a woman’s clinic. Before the procedure can be completed, Athena reaches out to an old friend from high school, Lily Rhodes Marx. Lily comes to Athena’s rescue, spiriting her away from the abusive Silas. Lily and her husband Rowen graciously welcome Athena into their home, where she finds out that family isn’t always blood, and that faeries and magic are real.

Fallen Snow, by Abby Farnsworth, is the third book in the EverGreen series. Taking place after the events of Moonlit Skies, Fallen Snow picks up with Athena and her journey to accept her own pregnancy and save herself from Silas. With several twists and turns that will keep readers on edge, Fallen Snow explores relationships, how someone could continue to love their abuser, and how new love can bloom even without the help of faerie magic.

The author has a knack for developing interesting character personalities and giving them believable physical descriptions along with faerie powers. These traits allow each character to shine on their own. There are several twists and turns throughout this alluring young adult romance novel, making this an unpredictable but enjoyable read.

I always enjoy the quick pace of the EverGreen books. I think the story moves a lot quicker here because, this being the third book in the trilogy, the author doesn’t need to spend time developing the character’s background. The characters are already established and their relationships feel genuine and the reader can feel their love for one another. Farnsworth’s writing style has developed and grown just like her characters in the story.

Fallen Snow is a seductive paranormal romance story that fans of emotionally-resonant teen fiction will enjoy. I loved the way fantasy and reality are blended throughout this story and I think readers will too.

Moonlit Skies

Jack is of fae blood and desperate to escape his past. When he stumbles upon fellow fae, LeAnne and Maggie, they graciously invite him back to their home. Jack soon discovers his new friends are Watchers (of the extreme variety) who oppose marriage between fae and humans. At the same time, Giselle, another fae, is going to visit Lily and Rowan who are pregnant with twins. Her trip is thrown into chaos when she meets a handsome man with whom she has an instant connection. Their lives soon become intertwined in a way no one could have expected.

Moonlit Skies, by Abby Farnsworth, is the second book in the EverGreen Trilogy and tells the fascinating story of Jack and Giselle, two faes connected through a shared fondness towards Lily. They must face the threat from the Watchers who are determined to put an end to intermarriage with humans and Lily, unfortunately, is on their radar.

Farnsworth has effortlessly blended the fantasy and contemporary genre to create a fascinating modern fantasy experience. The author seamlessly shifts the point of view between characters allowing the reader to fully immerse themselves in the characters’ thoughts. The dual points of view allowed me to become emotionally invested in the characters. Readers will be on the edge of their seats as they try to solve the mystery of exactly how Giselle and Jack are connected and how the two storylines will intertwine.

The author’s descriptions are so vivid that readers will feel as though they are in the story alongside Giselle and Jack. The author touches upon serious issues that are prevalent in society today, showing readers that we are not alone. Readers will find Farnsworth’s characters are both captivating and relatable.

Moonlit Skies is a charming romance novel that will enchant readers as they fall in love with the characters and travel to a breathtaking fantasy world.

The Most Powerful Parts of Herself

Abby Farnsworth Author Interview

EverGreen follows a high school girl that meets and falls in love with a faerie and explores the world of the fae with her new friends. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

I didn’t have one specific thing that inspired me. Lily and Rowan came to mind, and the rest of the plot followed. I used inspiration from my own life, and tied in issues I care about. Parts of my own life play into my books. I use them to help make the characters seem more alive.

Lilly starts off as the quiet bookworm that’s new to the school and grows into a strong and determined character. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?

Lily has always been strong and determined. When she was younger, she was too shy to show it. Being with Rowan made her acknowledge her inner strength. Her relationship with him brings out the most powerful parts of herself. Shy, nerdy girls can see themselves in Lily. Lily’s strength isn’t physical, it’s deeper than that. She is a feminine, beautiful, clumsy, strong woman. I hope that young women can look to her and see that they are strong, too.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

I explored lots of themes within EverGreen including young love, friendship, eugenics, and self-discovery. They are all important to the plot of the book. I’m very passionate about the things I write about. I wanted to show what a healthy, teen romantic relationship looks like. Friendship and self-discovery are important parts of all YA novels. Tying eugenics into the book was important to me, too. I wanted to look at it from a fictional perspective so that teens and other young people can see the pain and harm it causes.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

Moonlit Skies, my second novel, came out on November 23rd of 2021. Fallen Snow, Scarlet Whispers, and Ruby Tears will be released in 2022. Rosewood Dreams will be released in 2023. I’m currently working on Crimson Vows.
