I don’t usually read paranormal books about the Fey. In my experience, they tend to be overly complicated, with tons of different species and courts and such. As you all know, I’m a lazy reader and I just don’t have the energy to sort all that complicated crap out. But this book had a great blurb and a cute cover, so I thought, what the hell? I’ll give it a read. And overall, I’m glad I did.
The world-building in this book was intricate and well-thought-out. But yet, it wasn’t so intricate that I had trouble following the story. That’s not an easy accomplishment for an urban fantasy author, so I give the author mad props for that.
Desmoree was an interesting character. She was smart and capable, and certainly didn’t lack confidence, which was refreshing.
But, sadly, my reading experience wasn’t all sunshine, happiness and rainbows. I have a few gripes:
But, minor gripes notwithstanding, this is a book I’d recommend to urban fantasy readers who enjoy the intricate world of the Fey. The author obviously has a great talent for storytelling, and I expect great things from her as this series continues.
Full disclosure: the author generously provided a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
