(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I really did like the cover of this book. As covers go, this one was a really pretty one and definitely drew me into the book, so it did the job it was meant to.
I was a bit unclear about when this book was set at first, but I was drawn into the storyline really easily. Of course, I really liked that the author kept to one first person POV and found this book really easy and actually quite quick to read.
I really liked the concept of this story. It was interesting to see the fae working to protect the royal family. I also found it a really unique idea for the technology to affect Emrys and her kind. It was an interesting weakness.
I liked seeing the different types of fairy creatures there were and it was interesting to learn how and why Emrys and the rest of her kind took on physical form.
Speaking of Emrys… I did actually really like her as a character. Her relationship with Richard was quite an interesting one and although it did move a bit too fast (considering Emrys has lived much longer than Richard, who was a seventeen-year-old party boy), I did find it quite believable by the end.
I also really liked seeing and learning about the different characters from fairy legends, such as Mab and Titania. Also, it was really cool to see Herne the Huntsman.
I felt that the author did a good job of building the world of the mortals and the world of the fae. They both felt really real to me and it was interesting to see where the worlds collided with each other. I found myself feeling sorry for Mab by the end of the book.
Although the romance did take up a lot of the book, I did think that there was quite a lot of action, too, and a number of quite tense scenes. I found this book really well-written and I read it really easily and quickly. I have the second book ready to read and I would definitely read more books by this author in the future. I’d also like to see more of the minor characters and what their histories and relationships have been like over time.
