Have you ever had a book that's been on your to-read list for years, and then when you finally get to it, it's a screaming disappointment? That's me with this book. So many of my friends were hyping up the Tairen Soul series and after finishing Holly Black's Folk of the Air, I was desperate for more exciting stories about the fae.
The blurb from Christine Feehan on the cover was an immediate red flag because I've disliked nearly everything of Feehan's that I've read, and I've disliked most of the books Feehan has blurbed too, since like a lot of authors, she seems to like to read the types of books that she likes to write. And what kind of a book is this, you ask? Why, it's a fated-to-be-mated romance, of course, with the hulking alpha and his innocent ingenue who must help him save the race from bad magics that are Not Good.
If you like authors like J.R. Ward and Lara Adrian and, yes, Christine Feehan, you might like this. If, on the other hand, you are like me and those books make you roll your eyes so hard that they are in danger of falling out the back of the hole you drilled in the back of your head to trepan yourself out of your own misery, then AVOID this book at all costs and spare yourself the wasted time that I wish I'd spared myself.
