I’ve had this book sitting on my bookshelf since March. I kept putting it off, because I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy it. I was pleasantly surprised.The characters were delightful, the action was fierce, and the prose was beautiful. I truly enjoyed this book. It was action packed in most places and I got seriously freaked out by the cat-sidhe. Those are some freaky little buggers.My favorite character was Finn. He was brave, caring, and so loving even in spite of legendary enemies. The love story between them seems like one the most natural love stories I’ve read in awhile. Teagan was so caring about her little brother. She seemed to easily step into the roll of caretaker, which isn’t surprising with her love of animals. She was a very goal orientated character and I appreciated the fact that she kept her goals in mind at every stage of this book.The only issue I had with this book was the pacing was a bit off. It would have a ton of action and then not really resolve the action and then everything would simply slow down. The pacing didn’t throw me off enough to disrupt my reading pleasure.The mythology was painted beautifully from page one. The characters all had ancestry links to the world in which this book was set. Mag Mell is a place I’d really like to see with my own eyes. It simply seems so magically beautifully dangerous.
