After the mirrors that link the Fae to the human world are shattered, the Fae must find new sources of food and, equally importantly, magical power.

Too preachy. I don't mind politics integrated into a book, but not to where it takes me out of the fantasy/fairy genre story. I see and hear enough of that in the news, and don't want to feel like propaganda has been thrown in (along with the kitchen sink) when I spend my hard-earned cash. Again, I don't mind some, but it was too much in this case, and didn't really fit in well with the story line. I want something I can relax with at the end of a work day.

Five stars is in part because this is building so well on the previous three novels. Now we get a lot of items falling into place. But also the plot this time around is very strongly linked to the politics of the Fae world in a way that gives another dimension to the series and also feeds directly into the current events we're experiencing around the rise of fascism and the pandemic. Great stuff.

I am an avid reader, and will pick up almost anything. I grew up in a comic book shop (seriously), so I also have a great love and respect for comics, superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy.
