Not the best urban fantasy I've read, but certainly not the worst. Emma was a pretty typical heroine, though I have to give it to the author - even though her mother being dead is old news, the rest of Emma's home life was pretty interesting. It would have been more so if the characters had been given room to be fleshed out.

Curtis, the love interest, could especially have used that room, because I actually liked him. He didn't only think about wuving Emma, and he had an actual backstory. Granted, it wasn't brought up much, but at least it was a backstory. And his revelation at the end was pretty surprising. Loni and Tyler were amusing but not-extra-special sidekicks. The fairies - Trevor, Rupert, and Gilbert - were funny; reminded me of the fairies in Eyes Like Stars, actually.

A good solid three and a half stars - the writing wasn't great, especially with Ashby's love of 'she said in so-and-so voice' to dodge using an adverb. But still three and a half stars.
