Reeves weaves the story threads together towards a dramatic suspenseful conclusion. He draws on mythology and lore about fey and fairies, dragons and druids, in his own unique way. I loved the use of music - the chords - as a basis for magic and spells, and he portrays the overlap between the material world and the home of fairy well. Marny, Squirrel, Oberon and Calem are great characters - and there are twists and turns in this tale. All is not as it seems.
In some ways, I found Reeves' strength was also what made it harder for me to be immersed in his world and enjoy the ride. His prose is poetic, rich in immediate and sensual detail, literary, and novel, which resulted in some brilliant descriptions yet often slowed the pace or made it harder to understand exactly what was happening.
Overall, a clever and thought-provoking story, but a touch too literary for me to enjoy fully.
