Kit Blackhart has only recently become aware of her family's calling to protect humanity from the monsters that prey on us. She didn't grow up with the majority of her family and it was only when her grandmother was murdered by the fae that Kit discovered that monsters were real and that she was born to fight them. Sent to live with her uncle and cousins Kit has had a steep learning curve to deal with. Not only is she still discovering all the different fae species she also has to learn how to use her magical abilities as well as train with various weapons so she can defeat them. Recovering at home after her first solo mission Kit is disappointed not to be included in the latest battle her family are facing but she soon finds herself in over her head when a fae prince is attacked just outside their property. With her family out of contact Kit is in a difficult position, does she put herself in danger to save prince Thorn and is there anyone she can trust to help her?
I found Kit was a really likeable heroine, she has been thrown in at the deep end and doesn't have as much training as the rest of her family but what she lacks in knowledge she makes up for in guts and determination. I love the fact that she isn't perfect, she makes mistakes and doesn't always have the answers she needs but she never stops trying and fighting for what she believes in.Read more ›
There are some dark elements to this novel, including monstrous creatures reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft, and plenty of violence, but overall I would still describe it as a fun read. There are more lighthearted elements than dark ones, so the novel's tone still ends up being upbeat.
I also found a few scenes and phrases in the book to be a bit awkward and cliched, but the story's sense of rapid adventure made sure that these sections did not stand out too much.
I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone who loves urban fantasy, and doesn't mind an undercurrent of a love story. I am certainly planning on reading more books in this series in the future.
I would have given this book 3.5 stars if it was possible, but I rounded up.
Wasn't expecting much in the way of a read, but boy was I wrong! Great story, strong characters, interesting world. Definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
The sprinklings of betrayal and treachery just lift it to further heights like the hundreds and thousands on a cupcake!
