It took me a little while to get into this novella. I mean, it was good and enjoyable, but it didn’t quite make me want to dive right in. Partially because Claire didn’t really make me feel super connected. She was a little bit too naive and innocent. And just not quite as quick ass as the women that I’ve been enjoying lately.
I did enjoy the way that the fae feature so heavily in this story. They’re definitely not good or kind. And there’s a whole lot of horrifying politics at play – which is exactly the way I like them to be portrayed. I mean, all of the traditional tales of fae don’t feature nice, kind fae characters. They’re all disturbingly terrifying and seriously going to mess with you. Which of course is just why I love this novella so much.
Claire’s ability to outsmart the fae and reclaim her man was completely predictable in the fact that it happened. But it wasn’t quite predictable in the way it actually happened. I kind of want to know where their happily ever after goes from here. And perhaps, more importantly how Claire’s parents’ tale unfolded and bought so much wrath down upon their family.
