Each of the main characters were ‘fleshed’ out enough for me to admire them and relate well to them and their surroundings. Pay special care to the beginning where the author explains parallel worlds and the naming conventions, it will help. If magic, mayhem and fairies are your thing, grab this book and settle in with some cocoa.
After being sold into slavery by her own father, Abigail starts what is sure to be a hard and horrendous life. Considering she is a Halfling, she will have more than her fair share of torment and hate.
Then the twists begin, and let the action start! Heather Marie does it once again. This is a definite page turner and be prepared for an all nighter! I could not put this book down as I waited to see what would happen with each turn of the page. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
If someone is just looking for a supernatural romance , then maybe this will do (For the current price of this item on kindle you might just risk it). Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it because everything else is just a bit of an excuse for the romance parts.
In my opinion the story lacks many things on many levels to even keep it barely interesting. Some things seem just thrown in there without any real meaning or explanation.
Like the part where Abigail is sold to slavery by her father, which starts the book. In practice there is no background story explaining how it gets from the death of her mother to the slavery part.
The main character also is also described as almost insanely gifted and powerful - literally CAN WALK ON WATER.
(Which again brings back the question how the average human (father) managed to sell the all-powerful immortal half-goddess (daughter) to slavery ? And what was doing the immortal brother at that time ?)
There were many more things like this one which I found at least annoying, but I won't list them here.
I thought it was a really imaginative book, but the typos annoyed me. The author told me in an email that she has a new editor, so maybe that will fix those. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and if the typos were fixed I'd give it four stars.
It is a fresh telling of different fairy folk with loss, and a healthy dose of unrequited and fulfilled love thrown in.
I'm not somebody who should've liked this book but I did.
The only thing it lacked were surprises, which isn't to say that it was predictable per-se. I could tell what was going to happen yet I still enjoyed seeing that it did.
