Firstly, it was ill researched. Boy and girl twins = fraternal twins. Point blank, you may not skip this reality...ever. There was very little realistic facts regarding military protocol and lifestyle. For one, I have no idea why every single person is so overly affectionate because they have been 'touched by the Fey'. I'm over her by the second half of the book! I can't list all of the most nauseating events that occur between Alex and her crew because there are so many!
The plot of this book is all over the place. How many half finished directions did the writer take this story? I lost track. Some details I forgot by the time the writer threw more curve balls my way.
One major peeve I had with this book was the insert of the ghost of Jesse. Really now? I'm guessing because there was little to no research done on real military life, a ghost seemed like the best way to get the ball rolling.
Not a single character stood out to me as very likeable, because I wasn't given the opportunity to connect with them. There was too many people introduced with half baked backgrounds. And 'the Fey' is grossly overrated, sorry but it's true. She smells like chocolate? Or some other sweets? What group of masculine, hard-core terrorist fightibg, machine gun toting men sits around and talks like this...and in the middle of a life threatening crisis no less!
The ending was well... to put it bluntly, ridiculous.
The book is so unbelievable that it made me cringe straight through. The end!
I loved this book. Yes, the military protocol may not be exact but this is a work of fiction. Take it as such. I am looking for entertainment, not exact military protocol.
This book mixes fantasy aspects, thus the nickname of the character and references to fairies in the book. I would place this with Urban Fantasy-Military-Techno Thriller.
A couple of plot points didn't make sense to me, how could she not know who she married? The identical twins are actually fraternal, but look alike, that is very possible, but the verbiage is what throws most folks off.
Note: For those that are wondering, no, I do not know the author personally. The four stars are for the book.
