McDermott writes a spine tingling adventure for both Helene and Miach, which involves fae magic, hot sex, some sexual voyeurism, danger and betrayal. I did not like this book as well as I liked Cold Iron, which was Beth and Conn’s story. The plot does revolve around the fae court trying to break through the veil between the worlds, as this is the arc of the series, which I did find interesting. I just never felt the connection between Miach and Helene, the way I did between Beth and Conn. Also it is alluded to that Helene was sexually assaulted during her time lapse. I also didn’t understand why she need to build the solstice gate? I felt a lot of the points in the book did not make sense except to throw red herrings at me as the reader. Helene staying with the female fae Deirdre seemed contrived to only give Helene a reason to become a sexual voyeur and titillate the reader with group sex and same gender sexual appreciation. Plus the book eludes to something that happened in book one, that was not in the copy I read. Nowhere in book one does the fae Edale try to run Helene and Beth off the road. Yes, he does pursues them but no car bumping and crashing takes place.
Plus the author brings a lot of plot devices into the book that she does not wrap up in this book. I still am wondering how Nieve, Miach granddaughter is doing? Why would she fight so long to be with her baby daddy if he was such a horn dog. A lot of the book though fun to read at times did not make sense. McDermott tried to encompass too much and expand her world too quickly with this book.
I'm very much looking forward to reading the third in this series!
I was really looking forward to reading Silver Skin, the set up for this starring pair in their supporting roles in the previous book, Cold Iron, already had me hooked. And I enjoyed seeing how Miach, manages to cultivate Helene's trust and win her to his bed without using his Fae mojo. I especially liked that, despite the fact that the deck is stacked against Helene in a confrontation between full-human-her and those with magic, Helene's clearheaded-ness allows her to strike back and to make a difference in the battle against those who are working to tear down the wall imprisoning the cruelest of the Fae in order to set them loose upon the Earth. I also liked that given Miach's history and the problems which may require his magic in the future, author McDermott didn't try to wrap Helene and Miach's HEA off too tightly - a big shiny bow would have been a bit too much at this point.
In addition to Helene and Miach's story, there is a nice little touch up with the previous starring pair Conan and Beth. As a nit though, while I was completely invested in Helene and Miach at the end of the last book, there wasn't as much set up for warrior Elada's story, Stone Song, in this book. Although, I did sneak just a wee bit of a peek at the teaser for Stone Song and Elada's leading lady, Sorcha, looks very promising.
Glad the third in the series is out in just a couple of months.
