Seductive. Cruel. Bored

Prince and his fairy courtiers are staggeringly beautiful, unrelentingly cruel, and exhausted by the tedium of the centuries―until they meet foster-siblings Josh and Ksenia. Drawn in by their vivid emotions, undying love for each other, and passion for life, Prince will stop at nothing to possess them.

This book was such a let down for me. I truly hope that I was just in a weird mood when I read it and that all of you love it when it's released. I really wanted to love it but I didn't. One of the main characters, named Josh, reminded me a lot of a recent Big Brother winner also named Josh whom I found extremely annoying. I couldn't stop reading the character Josh with BB Josh's voice and that probably was the downfall of this book for me. He drove me crazy. I couldn't stand the two main charac ...more

I need some time to think before writing a review because this was one of the weirdest (in a good way!) books I’ve ever read in my life.

The writing in this book is like a Dali painting that is unique and beautiful but sometimes you just don’t get it.

Considering this has been one of my most anticipated books lately, I did not think I would end up writing a review for it saying it was my most disappointing read of the year, yet here I am. I have honestly been putting off writing this review because I didn't want to, but now I have like 4 reviews to catch up on from the procrastination of this one, so I think it is time. And small disclaimer before I continue, I did not end up finishing this book, I had to DNF it after the first part, there wa ...more

Two foster siblings are drawn through the hedges of the faerie after one makes a desperate choice. Porter's characters are beautiful, androgynous, and haunted by their pasts, especially Ksenia, whose struggle to accept herself is poignant and breathtaking. Think Holly Black's Tithe with the shiny edges rubbed off-Never Contented Things stays strictly in the dark side of faerie and creates a fantastically creepy world all its own.

The book has a phenomenal concept, but execution isn't quite enough. Whatever you are expecting from this book, I guarantee it's much, much weirder.

I find it funny the description makes Prince appear to be the main character, but my biggest problem with this book is that he is not elaborated on AT ALL and essentially is a lazy antagonist.

Think this will be super appealing to some, but it was not for me. There was way too much constantly happening to get really invested in any of it, and then it was over.

I write stories that seem to me to be quite true enough for all practical purposes. Among them are VASSA IN THE NIGHT, THE LOST VOICES TRILOGY, and the forthcoming WHEN I CAST YOUR SHADOW and TENTACLE AND WING. Realism makes little sense to me and I experience more truth in the
