I generally like stories that start in the middle of things and force the reader to catch up, but that presupposes that the author does a good job of world-building, which isn't the case here. I gave up less than 30% of the way into this book. My frustrations with it began before 10%, but I wanted to give it a fair shot before ditching it. The crazy thing is that I tried the sample, didn't like it, and gave the full book a shot anyway. Silly me.
I will echo another reviewer and thank my lucky stars that this book was only $0.99. It's books like this that inspire some readers to impose a blanket ban on buying books that cost LESS than $2.99. While I haven't reached that point yet, I'm getting much pickier about the dollar books that I will read. If I hadn't been a fan of this author's other series, I wouldn't have tried this one out. I would have missed nothing, and saved myself a buck. Lesson learned.
I like the idea of the story: two sisters, one destined to fulfill a prophecy. Irish lore. One sister is taken and the other is trying to get her back and to do this she must accept the help of creatures she didn't know existed before. There are two factions of the fae in this and I really like the descriptions of the "bad ones". Quinn has a fear of the water and this drives many of her actions and reactions in this book, which is annoying but more realistic than making the heroine suddenly overcome her fears.
There is a small amount of romance or what might turn into it, but right now it appears to be the beginnings of a love triangle, which I happen to despise. We will see how that plays out.
The main character Quinn, was a little annoying at times, making stupid decisions. Hopefully as she matures, that will fade. It was over half of the book before the reader finds out that Quinn is 26 years old. I was reading her as younger than that so that clarification should be earlier in the book, but I am happy she is older.
Overall a good quick read. I will definitely read on.
