Oath of Servitude by C. E. Wilson

From Amazon - This is the story of Teague and Cailin, two teenagers who have been brought together by fate. Teague, a human, struggles to come to terms with the consequences of a recent accident that has destroyed the happy life that he had once enjoyed. Cailin, a pixi, is trying to stay true to herself while fighting against forces beyond her control that have exiled her from her home into this strange world of humans. She fears the darkness. He cannot escape it. But when the two of them are thrown together, they begin to discover the light inside of themselves

Cailin is a pixie and asks a lot of questions and refuses to conform to the regime of her people.  Instead of being sent to the darkness like most rebellious pixies, she is sent to live with humans, Owen and Teague. Teague loves baseball, but after an accident, he turns his anger and pain toward alcohol.  Two people who have the most unlikely chance for a relationship, she's just a foot tall and he's over six feet.  But somehow, Wilson makes it work.  In fact, together, they may be able to save one another, but nothing is ever that easy.

Oath of Servitude has a great premise and remarkable, interesting characters.  The mixture of humans and pixies is one I found to be intriguing.  I enjoyed seeing their interaction and seeing how the relationship between Teague and Cailin bloomed.  There are plot twists and although not a cliffhanger ending, it leaves off waiting for the next book, Permanent Shadows, to pick up when it's released. A few grammer issues, nothing an editor can't fix, and it doesn't take anything away from the story.  If you enjoy fantasy, definitely pick this one up!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
