A comparison to Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere is what caught my eye and got me to pick up this book. The story is really quite different from that one - in both, a Londoner gets sucked into a world he never knew existed, but otherwise they are not the same. They do perhaps appeal to very similar audiences.

In this book, a middle-aged man had a heart attack, and then learns that he is half-fey. His life will never be the same again, as he learns of his abilities while running from both the human police force and other fey who want to see him dead. Mixing a historical ceremony with the world of the Feyre (definitely not Disney fairies), Shevdon has created a very interesting urban fantasy that is not more of the vampire and werewolf craze.
