I must start by saying I really love the cover that Rebecca picked. I think it just flows well and is really pretty and eye catching. I love that those blue shoes she talks about is on the cover.
I thought overall this was a pretty good book, I did feel that it seemed a little rushed. It started out slower, you are getting to know Des a little bit and see her fiery side and then she is whisked away into the Fey world. She is slowly understanding who she is, since it has been hidden from her, her entire life in order to protect her. She meets her relatives and hears about this prophecy how she is the chosen one to defeat this beast and it is all thrown at her right away. Now who wouldn’t have some anxiety over this?! Then as she starts to learn more about what is going on in this world and gets to meet her father and starts to learn more about Jax it all of a sudden takes off. One second she is learning where to collect ingredients for spells and that she can see her moms essence and speak to her and then bam all of a sudden she is in a battle with the beast. Then from there it is nonstop, don’t want to put it all in here and ruin the story.
Maybe it is because I am used to reading trilogies where by the end of the first she might have had her first battle with the beast, but there would have been some backstory to it. I know this is a series as well, but it just seemed to go really fast. That being said I thought the story was interesting and kept me entertained and wondering what was going to happen. I really liked Des sarcasm and her attitude, I did feel that towards the end she kind of lost that spunk. She all of a sudden became really sweet tempered and romantic, which isn’t bad, but was different than how she started out in the book.
I am glad that this book didn’t have a love triangle, at first I thought oh dear Jax and Moyeth are both going to want her. Then you find out that Moyeth is actually married so I was glad. Not that I don’t love a good love triangle, but I enjoy books that don’t do it because you get to focus on the story and the growth between the two characters. I thought overall this was a fun book and am interested in knowing where the story goes from here. I thought the characters were good and that I did connect with them and were interested in them as the story progressed.
In this world, there are the Stalisies Fey and the Tanzieth Fey. The Stalisies are the pure-bloods and the Tanzieth’s are the fey who have human blood in their family tree. There is a class separation of the two types as well as discrimination of the Tanzieths. Des’s mom was Stalisies and her dad is Tanzieth. There has been a long-time prophecy in this world and the seers are saying that Des is the prophesied one. Only Des is not convinced that she needs to be the one to save the world.
What I loved about this story is that Des feels failure. She has issues unlocking her magic, when she does come into her powers there are difficulties and even in battle she struggles. Eventually she overcomes her failures but it is nice to see a main character not be handed everything. The good guy did not save the day the first time. Too often characters come into their powers and then everything is rosy. Throughout the story there were more struggles and growing pains for Des and I like that she had to truly work for everything.
Another thing that I enjoyed was that there were battle scenes. I wish that they had been more detailed I felt that I was getting a one-dimensional view of the battles but still who doesn’t love a book with battle scenes?! The twist with the villain was quite good. It was nice to see a sinister villain who had long laid evil plans. There was also a bit of romance in this story and I thought that it was sweet. There were some sexy times but it was really on the ‘G’ level.
So what were my issues? I felt that the story was rushed and that there was so much going on that it left little time for character development and backstories. Specifically, backstories for the motivations of why the characters made some monumental choices that affected the story line. Why did the villain become the villain? Why did Jax take it upon himself to attempt the assassination? It was touched on but I never truly understood why he felt he needed to be the one to hunt for the Dazerarthro. There were many opportunities for backstories to explain the motivations for the characters but no true explanations came. The story was quite remarkable but the lack of depth left me wanting.
The world that was built was quite fascinating. I think that might have been one of my favorite parts. I enjoyed how the Author included transportation ideas for the wingless fey. There is also quite a bit of magic going on with spell casting and actual building of spells with ingredients. The scene where she has to go hunting for ingredients was very comical and fascinating.
Overall, I liked this story and it kept me engaged until the end. Now, let’s talk about the type of fey that are in this story. If you are more in the camp of fey being like those in The Lord of the Rings, well you may not love these fey but you will enjoy the battles and conflicts. If you enjoy reading stories about fey who are more akin to fairies who cast spells and fly then this will be a very satisfying read for you.
