First off, the main character Keiron had ZERO redeeming qualities, none IMO. He treated Draven like garbage, one minute acting like he was so worried, the next refusing to say he loved him when Draven was dying. Draven told him that he would fade away if Keiron didn't say it, Keiron replied that, 'maybe, in time I could say it'... nice. Then after Draven is 'cured' but is still weak, Keiron gets angry with him, yells at him, this after supposedly being so afraid he would lose him. Or towards the very end, when Keiron finds Draven in the fairy world, lying unresponsive, he makes a joke with, "nothing ventured, nothing gained"... WTF?!? You've come to realize how much you love the virtually dead man in front of you, you've spent months apart missing him and your own life deteriorating... and THAT is something you'd think?!? It didn't make ANY sense, but almost none of Keiron's or even Bren's actions made any sense in this book; it's like the author wanted to write something fast and didn’t bother to think anything through. Like she had a plotline concept to push and used the most expedient way possible to tell it... I'm almost afraid to read any of her other books if this is how she writes.
Another example of her expediency... how Keiron, a 22 y.o. working for an accounting firm, can just call in and quit his job since he has 'a little' savings... and a couple months later his 'work from home' job is bringing in enough work that he can buy a house in the country... how convenient.
Then there's the whole situation with Bren... another 'ZERO redeeming quality' character. Keiron was so absolutely ignorant and inconsiderate, he saw how Bren was acting towards Draven and completely ignored it, leaving Draven home alone knowing that Bren had a key and Bren knew Keiron would be off to work!! Or how Bren invited his friends over to harass and mistreat Draven... how unrealistic... but again, convenient for the plotline. There is nobody as heartless as Bren was portrayed, and anyone who came across a real live fairy is going to treat them that way. Any person would be amazed, stunned, curious... but no, the way Bren and his friends treat Draven defies any type of logic, even from a 'jealous boyfriend'. Which brings up another point... the ONLY thing Keiron seems to mention positive about Bren is their sex, which he mentions several times... otherwise Bren seems to have no other positive qualities in Keiron's eyes. In my opinion, Keiron is a worthless character, I honestly don't think I've ever seen such a horribly written main character in all the books I've read.
Now on to the completely misleading book blurb... "... until the only way to save Draven and bring him home is to step into a world that should exist only in children stories. " It makes it seem like Keiron is going to go into Draven's world and we'll get to see the fairy realm... but no... the entire trip into Draven's world is about three or four pages long coming almost at the end of the book, and of that realm we see hardly anything, like the entire trip was an afterthought, or another expediency, for the author.
The only positive of this book was Draven... his personality and exuberance was fun to read... it's just too bad he lacked the ability to find a worthy mate and had to settle for someone as pathetic as Keiron.
