The Faerie PathThe Faerie Path (Book 1 of the Faerie Path) by Frewin Jones

Swept away into a court of magic and beauty, she discovers she is Tania, the lost princess of Faerie: the youngest daughter of Oberon and Titania. Since Tania's mysterious disappearance on the eve of her wedding five hundred years before, Faerie has been sunk in darkness and gloom. The courtly Lord Gabriel Drake, who Tania was once to marry, has found her and brought her back.
With Tania's return, Faerie comes alive again as a land of winged children, glittering balls, and fantastic delights. But Tania can't forget Anita's world, or the boy she loved there.
Torn between two loves and between two worlds, Tania slowly comes to discover why she disappeared so long ago. She possesses a singular magical ability and she must use it to stop a sinister plan that threatens the entire world of Faerie.

I read this book while I was on internet hiatus and really enjoyed it. It was a cool story and I was anxious for the second book. Which I got this week and already read. The story has some romance in it but that is not the primary focus of the story. The main focus is her goal to try to understand what happened to her and accept that she is actually a faerie princess for real and that Faerie does exist and it needs her help.
It is not anything deep or dark but an light interesting story.

The Lost Queen: Book Two of The Faerie PathThe Lost Queen (Book 2 of the Faerie Path) by Frewin Jones

Tania is a princess of Faerie.
And now she must return to the Mortal World.
Once upon a time, Tania was an ordinary girl. But then she was swept into another world, where she was the long-lost princess of the elegant and magical court of Faerie, and only she could save the court from great peril.
Now Tania—and her true love, Edric—will go back to the Mortal Realm to seek Queen Titania, lost hundreds of years ago while searching for Tania.
Their return leads to struggles with Tania's much-loved mortal parents and friends as she and Edric try to conceal their secret. But much more serious dangers lurk: The sinister Lord Drake is not yet defeated, they are pursued by dark supernatural forces, and Tania's two worlds are about to collide in amazing and frightening ways she never could have anticipated.

This was a quick read (the book is thick but the print is pretty large) but definitely the second in the trilogy. You know, the book that is the transition book. Some stuff happens that needs to happen to finish the story, but it is really killing time until you get the third book and the climax. There was no real climax in the book unless you count the very end (like the last page).
Book 3, The Sorcerer King comes out in hardback the end of January.
