I just bought this book yesterday after reading the sample pages and immediately getting hooked on the story and needing to know what would happen next. I bought the book and spent the next hour immersed in a fascinating world of faeries, then got up early this morning and read straight through until I finished, it's that good.
College student Meghan thought she was going on a fun date with charming, blond-haired Kiernan and was introduced to a world she never knew existed....one that was impossible to walk away from. This is not the type of book I ordinarily read, but the storyline intrigued me, with the idea of twin brothers separated on their third birthday, one staying with his mother and the other going with his father to the dark world that he creates and rules over.
Without giving away too much of the story, I will share that there is a sweet love triangle here that is G rated and should appeal to all ages. This is also a well written and fast-paced story that races along. It's very difficult to put down and as the first book in a trilogy, it has a satisfying ending that leaves this reader dying for the next book.
This story should appeal to readers who enjoyed Twilight and other similar stories. The world of the Faeries is vividly drawn and the characters are likable, especially the boys grandmother, Selena and both Avery and Kiernan make for great heroes...Meghan isn't sure which one she likes better...and I'm not either, they're both amazing.
Highly recommend this, will be telling my twin nieces, who are 14 about it, and also my friends who are in their 40's...it really is a great story for both teens and adults. I predict that this book will do very well, and that the author will have a long and happy career ahead of her!
