It had all the kind of things I love to read in a dark story, and done so beautifully that I was very captivated by some parts of the book. It also have some I'm not particularly comfortable with, but not in an amount it make the read less likable.
About the characters, I found Aiden fascinating. It was fantastic how unlikable he was and yet he had such amazing redeeming elements, that make me end up falling in love with such an spoiled brat. It was so easy to get in touch with his emotions. I had so much fun reading some scenes with him being bratty. Others characters, even though interesting, weren't as remarcable as Aiden was.
The issue I had, mostly, was the lack of romance. I know it was a dark read, and that part I absolutely love. If that was my only expectation, this book would be everything I could hope for. But it wasn't, because I was hoping for a little more romance, and it might not be complitely absent, but I struggle to find believable emotions between the ones who were supposed to be in love. It is mention in the book and it make sense, but it was still something I was expecting, maybe because of the fairytale theme of the series.
Regardless of my issues, it was an amazing read. I would't hesitate on recomended it to readers who are into dark theme books. Beware the warnings.
Aiden has known for his entire life that he is destined to be a trophy husband. But his domineering, cold mother has kept secrets from him that have thrown everything he knows upside down. Now he finds himself trying to survive within the fae realm, a place where cruelty is as common and expected as breathing.
Adara is a fabulous writer who has beautiful writing. The plot was enthralling, and filled with so many dark and twisted moments. This book is definitely not for everyone. Not only is it heavy on the kink and BDSM elements, but it also features some very dark topics during erotic moments. Read the warnings in the blurb. The ending reminds me of the endings in the older fairytales that weren’t Disney-fied and made palatable for young children. It’s ambiguous and twisted, but a perfect way to end a dark romance.
I really enjoyed Aidan's character. I liked how he didn't necessarily change so much as coming to his own being despite everything that happened to him. I also found it really hard to have any sympathy for Owen. Yes his life is unfair and terrible but his cruelty knows no bounds. Also if he's so familiar with Fae and their logic than he had to know what was going to happen eventually. I'm not saying it's right and none of these characters are particularly good people but logic of the book dictates you weren't going to get away with it my guy.
Anyways I did really like the story. Especially that final chapter. It was oh so sweet (something I never thought I'd say about an Adara Wolf book) and the perfect wrap up. I even liked the epilogue which is rare. That's all I can really say without giving the book away because I know how Adara Wolf fans feel about spoilers and again it's a fairytale. As Long as you follow that logic and steer towards the darker side you pretty much know what's going to go down.
The only thing that kind of got me, and admittedly it's a petty one, is I really didn't expect this to follow the original fairy tale so closely. Who knew the teasers were all from the first 30% of the book. Based off everything I know about this series and this author, the book could have gotten several ways. Many of which I think would have been a bit more interesting while still taking inspiration from the source material and ending on a HEA. That's part of the fun of retailing right? A different interpretation, not a almost direct replica. I'm not saying this is a bad retelling or even a bad book (far from it). But because it didn't quite feel like a retelling it kind of left me...wanting. For what I don't know but not sure how else to describe this feeling.
Anyways, 4 stars because I still enjoyed it and the geese were cute.
