I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I read quite a bit of paranormal, and although this one had fairies, and your typical good vs bad with a human stuck in the middle, the author still somehow found a way to make this book stand out as much more original than the rest. It kept me fully engaged from beginning to end.
Charlotte’s character was one of my favorites, because she wasn’t your typical damsel human in distress. She was an exceptionally strong woman that had been successfully raising twins, one with apparent special needs, all while working a full time job. Even once Callan re-entered her life and turned everything she knew upside down – opening up a whole new world to her and her twins – she never weakened, and her thoughts never swayed from what was most important: her children. Throughout the book, her life got more and more complicated, and at one point, just about anyone would have broken, but she didn’t. I love a book with a tough woman!
The world building in this book was also really creative and beautiful. I suppose it helps that Ireland is already beautiful, but the additional world creation wasn’t overly done, and was easy to believe that those that lived there could easily transition between their world and the human world. I also liked how the “good versus bad” wasn’t necessarily so black and white (with the exception of one truly bad guy). They’re more like different classes, one viewed as less trustworthy, but necessary for their “job”. Once Charlotte enters their world, she definitely does her job breaking down those barriers and showing their flaws, and I can see how things are really going to blow up in that regard in future books – and I can’t wait to see it happen.
This book certainly kept me on my toes throughout, where I was sure (likely based on what other books would have done) what was going to happen next, but I was regularly proven wrong. I have no idea what is in the future for any of these characters, and I look forward to finding out. I’m sure we’ve only scratched the surface, and this book was the perfect slow (but not too slow) build up of what is going to be a huge upheaval in all worlds involved, and for every character.
The only reason I gave this book 4 instead of 5 stars is because there were times when it was hard to tell who was saying or doing what, and although the general world building was fantastic, there were times where specific room or building descriptions were more difficult to imagine, so I had to reread them a few times. However, it was very little distraction from the book as a whole, and will certainly not keep me from moving on to book 2 ASAP to find out what happens next.
