This ticked off almost every 'favorite' box on my list :
Fairy Tale? yes
(almost/quasi) Menage? yes
Animal companion? yes
I definitely look forward to reading the next book.
There were some editing issues and it ends on a cliffhanger.
I really enjoyed the Romani background but without the translations, reading was sometimes confusing.
The relationship between the two main characters includes a few twists and turns but the story is definitely intriguing. Personally I felt Nikolai was not as invested or even interested in Alexei, his heritage or a future together. I found him to be extremely selfish/unaware. It made my heart ache for Alexei.
I am looking forward to the next books of this series! Can't wait to see what happens. If you like fantasy, mystery and Faerie, it's all here for you. The writing draws you and makes you want more.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really know much about the Romany culture and what knowledge I do possess came directly from My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on TLC and even then its been a few years. Reading the blurb and finding out that the main characters were both from that culture was one of the main reasons I decided to give this book a try and while there weren’t a ton of details about their heritage or way of life, I really enjoyed the uniqueness it gave to the story. Put that alongside the ghost of a dead girl who’s killing people at a summer camp and you have an interesting blend of religious and supernatural elements that came together to make an entertaining read that captured my attention more than I expected it to.
While the ghost in the lake does feature prominently in the story, as she’s what the plot revolves around, I found Alexei and Nicolai, and their unique type of ‘coming of age’ storyline to be more of the focus and that’s what I was really interested in reading about; the paranormal elements were just kind of a bonus for me in this case. The ghost part of the story was a nice accompaniment to the changing relationship between the main characters but I was captivated by the deepening connection between Alexei and Nicolai. The air of mystique they have surrounding how they came to be found and raised as Romanies added to that and just made them more interesting to me.
Now, let me drop a bit of a warning/explanation about one of my tags here. I did label the story with an incest tag but that was more out of caution than anything else as there is no actual evidence to prove Alexei and Nicolai are related. They were raised together but no one knows if they are actually related in any way. To me, it didn’t feel as though they were but I figured I would drop the tag just in case as there was some confusion on this issue. The story itself flowed well and without a great deal of drama and I found it entertaining from start to finish. The ending, however, has raised quite a few questions and has only whetted my appetite for more. (I’m happy to say the sequel has already been released so I won’t have to wait for answers!) If you enjoy paranormal stories and are looking for characters with a unique cultural background I’d give this one a look; I’m really glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I love the characters' background and how unique it is. I've never read about characters who were Rom (Gypsies), and it was really interesting to read.
What I found interesting is that there's kind of incest in the book (I say kind of because you're not sure if Nikolai and Alexei are actual brothers or not but they were raised as brothers). I thought it was weird that that wasn't mentioned in the description of the book, maybe it wasn't because they're not actual brothers- I don't know, but I figured it should be mentioned. Plus, there was kind of a scene where there was multiple partners (basically someone watched Nikolai and Alexei get it on), but Nikolai and Alexei are also really friendly with other people (kissing them, mostly) and I don't know if that's because they're Rom or just something they do or what. It didn't particularly bother me, but it was still weird.
I did find some issues grammar-wise. They weren't horrible but there was enough that I noticed them. I wish this book was longer because it felt really short, and I don't think Alexei and Nikolai spent enough time on the ghost. It seemed like they figured out who the ghost was really quickly, and it wasn't described how they did it/the book kind of skipped over that until it got to the part where they killed it. I would've liked more details.
Overall, I liked reading this book, and I'm curious as to what the second one will be about.
