I wasn’t let down.
This book takes you through a journey through a parallel universe where you meet ogres, fairies, elves, vampires, wood nymphs and druids. Annika herself finds out some very interesting information about herself during this journey.
I loved the mostly love story between herself and Talvi. At some points very sexual (stress very, there is a BDSM scene in there that rivals a certain Grey book) and at some points sweet, I thought it was interesting to see their relationship evolve to where it did.
The other storylines (Yuri/Konstantine, Finn/Hilda are a couple) were very fun to read also and added to the plot, instead of taking away. Plus there’s the matter of Talvi’s secrets. The author didn’t reveal them all at once, instead she dragged them all out over the course of the book….which made it very, very, very interesting to read.
The ending was very bittersweet and it was written exactly how I imagined it to be. I won’t say that I wasn’t surprised by it, though….lol.
Will I read this book again? Yes!!!
Will I reccomend this book to family and friends? Yes but with a warning of the intense sex scenes.
Age range: Adult. Again, because of the intense sex scenes.

I think a better finish to this book would have involved the heroine tossing the big jerk to the curb after permanently scarring his pretty face in some way. Not that the heroine was such a prize either, considering she spent the first three months of her presumed pregnancy in a bottle and left her friends and family in the lurch by bailing on her financial obligations (so she could spend her time in a bottle).
Blech!!! For those into self-flagellation, maybe this will be a hit. Two stars for world creation.
Okay, so this is one of my favorite books EVER IN EXISTENCE right now because of how much I'm reeling after minutes of finishing it. I just- like- the FEELS I still have! It started off a little rough for me with the new type of style the author used for her writing, and it's completely different from the fantasy the synopsis promises, you know? So I needed patience, but it didn't take that long (maybe only two pages?) before the main character got intriguing. She was a young woman trying to figure out why she always felt like she never fit, despite having what every sensible woman would want in her lifetime.
From there, her travels to Europe and the other world completely enraptured me, and I couldn't stop reading. Even when I had to adult or sleep, the second I woke up, I'd have my kindle in hand reading on as I continued on with my day. I couldn't part from this book. The writing was a lengthy type of style that reminded me a little of the Anita Blake series, but took on a more narrative voice, which still managed to make me feel like I was with every character when their side of the story came up. It was just weird how well it flowed for me, how much I immediately took to the adventures going on. There were a few technical errors, and some details were too much for me when I couldn't handle the anticipation- gah -but other than that, I really clicked with this book.
The plot was a nice and basic foundation with more elaborate happenings to make things interesting. One person or problem was introduced, only for more things to happen, and by then, a lot of the characters felt familiar to me even though they'd only come on a few chapters ago. Just... wow.
It's a total fantasy world with great detail and complex people. They all have their faults and generosities, and I really enjoyed seeing them fight and make amends. It showed that they were normal people who fought and made up, that nothing was ever perfect and everyone made mistakes. One thing bugs me to this second, but for the life of me, I'm still working it out. This book will do that to you, making you look back at all that'd happen.... This is a definite recommend that one MUST READ. I can't imagine not having read this now.
