I really had high hopes that I would like this, but I didn’t. This is a spin off of the author’s Grey Wolves series. I only read the first book in the Grey Wolves series, which wasn’t enough to keep me from being lost at times, since there are so many points that lead back to or are references from that series. So I really don’t think this is a stand-alone series. I’m not sure I want to read the full Grey Wolves series now either, after reading this. This also has a cliff-hanger ending with not a whole lot of resolutions to problems. The editing was atrocious for a published book (I had to stop & double check that I wasn’t reading an ARC!), & that really hurt the already problematic flow. The plot really dragged along, seemed like it took forever for anything to happen. There was a lot of places in the plot or about the characters that the info didn’t jive together cohesively.
This book is full of snarky comments/banter that I believe were meant to be funny or maybe to make the female characters seem strong, but really weren’t IMO. The snarkiness came off as immature/juvenile instead. There’s also so much sexual innuendo in the conversation amongst ALL the characters (except for straight laced Lucian), that it’s actually annoying enough to make me skip thru paragraphs. All the characters (except Lucian) seemed to have the same snarky attitude too. I had to backtrack a few times to see what character’s dialogue I was reading because they all read alike. The other thing, the height of the werewolves was so confusing, now a days, a 6 foot man is common, to say they are big at 6 foot up to 6 foot 2 inches seemed weird. But to only give an inch or so more than the rest of the wolves in the group, to describe Dalton as huge, made no sense at all. I don’t think 1 or 2 inches more made him huge.
The main character “Peri the fairy” (as she’s referred to in the book) is very annoying to me. I didn’t like her at all. I would not want to read another book about her as the main character. Her werewolf mate, Lucian is alright, not memorable, not swoon worthy (except for his hallmark moments). He’s supposed to be some sort of dominant/strong alpha, but he didn’t really seem like it to me. This is supposedly their book (atleast I thought it was), but it really seemed to gloss over their relationship, I felt like I was getting the cliff-notes version at times.
I really hated that the puppet master villain (Volcan) kept being down played by Peri’s evil sister (Lorelle) as not so evil, but more like a 3 year old throwing a temper tantrum. It made it hard to take him seriously as a threat. There was also a lot of info that got twisted/changed involving the villains that made me not appreciate the book as a whole. The info needs to stay consistent or have a reason why it changed to justify it for me go with a change of direction. (1 Example- he was supposed to need to drain all 3 healers’ Blood to be able to take physical form & have some of his power, he supposedly needed all 5 to have his full power, but before he’s even done with The first one, he’s taking physical form & more powerful than everyone fighting him too, including Peri. What the?)
Reading the descriptions for the next 2 books in the series, sounds like this will be a “very slow for anything to happen” type of series -book 2 & 3 per their blurbs focus on the “new” couple (Dalton & Jewel) at the end of this book & they’ll still be fighting the same villain in book 3.
I was excited about this series and was not disappointed. Quinn has a way of pulling out every emotion you have in you in one single book. I laughed, I cried, I was angry and happy all at one time. Although this is a new series this book still has the beloved characters from the grey wolves series which I was happy about. There are now new characters to fall in love with as well as the love for previous characters. I am excited to see where this series is going and am now going to wait anxiously for Quinn's next book!!!!
But there are a few things that make me hesitate giving 5 or even 4 stars for this book.
1. There were errors in this ebook that for a New York Times Best Seller I feel like should not have been there. There were quite a few words missing from sentences and awkward phrasing that interrupted the flow of the story. I hate it when I have to mentally correct books so that I can understand them and I had to do that too many times with Into the Fae.
2. (This may be a silly one but it tripped me up so many times in the book I have to mention it) the first line of the book says that Peri is nearly 3 centuries old but based off of the Grey wolf series and Into The Fae, she's older, I think...Right away, I was slightly confused and annoyed and It only got worse as the book went on because Peri talked about experiencing so much and being so ancient, somehow I felt like it was another typo. Am I wrong?
3. After reading the Grey Wolf series and trying to read Rapture and now Into the Fae, I feel like Ms. Loftis only has one type of female character: loud, obnoxious and overly preocuppied with sexual inneundo. I found myself skipping whole pages and paragraphs because I was SO tired of the banter that went on between the characters. I don't find it entertaining anymore, just one more thing to slog through to get to the story. I like strong female characters who can hold their own against anyone and I think that is what Ms. Loftis intends but they are starting to come across as the same person: just varying shades of Jen. This really disappoints me because I can see the vein of individuality of each character but their being smothered in order to keep the bad sex jokes coming.
4. I really like that there are lot of characters in Ms. Loftis' books, it adds flavor and keeps the story flowing because the reader can see things from different points of view. BUT I start to feel like either me or the book has multiple personality disorder when we have to read about the same event through each character's point of view in quick succession: First Jewel, then Kara, then Heather. I could appreciate this more if I felt like something new was being shared but I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over again with only small differences sprinkled in.
All that being said, I can't wait for the next one and I will buy it and read it and die when it's done and I have to wait for the next book!
