really liked it

** spoiler alert ** I haven't read the first in the Faeire series (me being bit of a twit didn't even realise it was part of a series until now!) so I haven't really got any 'backstory' as it were. Although judging from the other reviews, this is a completely new story anyway. So, I will continue as before. I thought this book was very good and fairly original. I liked the characters even though some were distasteful perhaps. I found the beginning a bit .. odd. I mean her boyfriend and her mum ?? That's a bit gross and a bit weird and that shocked me. Yes, there is swearing and sexual references but this is a YA aimed book so if you don't expect that then I think you are being a little bit naive. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this and liked the ending particularly, plus the cover art is pretty awesome too.
