“I would not worry about that, mortal. No one ever leaves the Nevernever completely sane.”

I have been a fan of both Kagawa's Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series, so of course I decided to try this one again despite putting it off the first time I read it. I honestly can't remember why I didn't finish this one, though.

First off, the world building was as lovely as always. If there's one thing I love about Kagawa's books, it's that they all have these magical settings. The Nevernever is definitely in my top 10 most-loved worlds in fiction.

“Tough guy, if brooding was a sport, you'd have gold medals with scowling faces lining the walls of your room.”

Sadly, I was indifferent about the romance. While I thought Ethan was a wonderful lead, I found his love interest, Kinzie, to be a little bit too dull and a bit of a "trying too hard to be awesome" character. I don't know--it might just be how she's cute, feisty and loved by everyone, but I wasn't a huge fan. So of course, my indifference toward the romance followed suit. And maybe I felt that they were attracted to each other much to quickly.

Overall, it was a fun read, especially with the appearance of our beloved characters such as Puck and Ash.  The writing was entertaining, the world was fantastic and the characters were quite okay and the romance was... not okay. But I would still recommend it to you if you like witty characters, angst and wonderful fantasy elements.

♥Rachel♥ Wonderful review, Aimee! I had really similar feelings. The romance didn't really make me swoon.

Aimee Thanks, Rachel! It felt like the romance just happened too quickly...
