Something I did notice is that the book does go a little slow. The book doesn't seem to get interesting until after Faedra’s eighteenth birthday and that doesn't arrive until page 57. In my opinion the book should have started at this point. Everything before her eighteenth birthday is back-story that could be shared in small details throughout the book at a later time.
The whole, “Surprise I’m part Fae!” and the shape shifting that’s limited to just one animal not of your choosing, reminds me of True Blood. Oh, and did I mention that these fairies use glamour on humans, and Faedra can generate balls of light from her hands?
Even though all of the above powers mentioned are the same powers displayed in the Sookie Stackhouse novels, I am just going to go with it. I’m not very familiar with Fairies so perhaps these powers are just generalized powers that are spoken on within most Fae legends.
Now, let’s get to Faedra’s Guardian/Dog. I sure do love me some Faen with his old worldly charm. The author did an impressive job bringing him to life. Not only is he handsome and well-spoken, but he's also a bit funny. Faedra and Faen’s first kiss was so adorable. I can't even believe I'm falling for a freaking fairy, but I can’t help it. He’s just so perfect.
Overall, the book was written quite nice and I am a bit intrigued to see where the part 2 will take us. I’m pretty sure that I have the twist figured out though and I’m absolutely confident that I know how Faedra and Vivianna are connected. Especially when Faen hinted to her by saying, “It is not the dress that makes you a princess.” Yes! Suspicions confirmed!
My biggest qualm with this book is that although the book started out with some depth and time taken to really set the scene and get a feel for everyone and everything involved, it fell flat towards the end and felt rushed. The adventures in the fairy realm were passed over quickly and gave the reader very little substance. I was expecting 50+ pages of them adventuring to find the Lord of the Woods, and then them taking time to figure out the location he described...it was all too easy. Most fantasy books are about the adventure of getting to place, not just the destination and this was just lacking at the end.
On a positive note, the author is very good with descriptors and you do get a very good feel for what places and people look like. Occasionally this gets a little over the top and extensive but it doesn't detract from the book as a whole. The few grammatical errors and run-on sentences are easily forgivable and there aren't enough to worry about or bother me - the author has done a pretty good job of checking her own work (as indie authors have to do). The story itself is easy to read and I read it in under a day. If I could be sure the next one didn't rush the end I would buy it, but not sure if it will be more fleshed out and less hurried than this one.
