I thought this was a sweet story, and I really liked Tomlinson's take on the fae...I found it quite original. But like another reviewer, I thought it a little odd that the parts of the story told by Netta and Garin and Loic were written in first person while Aurelie's parts (the vast majority of the book) were in third. I think I would have liked the telling a little better if the whole book had been written from Aurelie's point of view--I just didn't find that hearing the other characters' voices really added much, and in some cases, it actually felt a little awkward. But I found I liked the characters, and I enjoyed Tomlinson's descriptions. I wouldn't have minded a much longer book, actually, with the action a little more drawn out--this kind of flew by!
