The writing is rather dense at times. The author seems to love descriptive prose, but couldn't decide which phrase to use - so he used them all. It slows the book down, while also having an effect of creating that sense of otherworldly. You cannot describe the Fae in one pretty sentence, just as you cannot get a solid feel for them from just one book. I must point out that the author isn't describing objects, he describes the emotions of the moments at great detail. Amazingly, he didn't lose me while he did so (it's a very, very slow and confusing start to the book that makes sense later) and I couldn't quite seem to stop reading.
It's a good story. I liked his history of the Fae and how they came to be where they are in the modern world. I liked the characters, the worlds and I actually did like the ending.
Not sure I would read it again, but I certainly don't regret the weekend I spent on it.
