When I started reading this I was excited to see where Finn and Diego's relationship was going to go. I guess you could say I had some preconceived notions. Those notions, for the most part, were not realized.

If you recall, I thought Finn and Diego's relationship relied heavily upon telling rather than showing in Finn, so seeing them together and growing as a couple was primarily what I was after in Diego. Two things: (1) I would hazard a guess that 10-15% of this book is endearments sp

The mysterious world of the sidhe and their enemies comes to life yet again in this second story about Finn and Diego. Their love has already spanned centuries, has survived several lifetimes’ worth of suffering and separation, so they are determined to make things work in this newest incarnation. With Finn’s background as a pooka with a strong link to water, and Diego’s life as a human writer, it is a challenge for them to face the Otherworld together. They were in trouble before, but what they ...more

Finn and Diego return! They've settled in Montana for a nice quiet life, but life with a pooka is rarely quiet for long. But really, this time it's Diego's fault. Mostly. A simple misunderstanding opens the Veil and a whole set of new problems. As Diego becomes more confident with himself and his magic, Finn begins to have doubts if he's the best thing for someone as wonderful as Diego. We follow the couple and their new friends between worlds and into trouble. Life really isn't going to
2.5, rounded up

This story was quite a bit different from the first and I didn't care for it. There were sone good parts, but I was mostly disappointed.

I was so excited to read more about Finn and Diego, but that insecure and melodramatic pooka was not my Finn. A few moments of insecurity would have been understandable, but this was too teenage angst for me. Of course, the Fae were prone to childish overreactions, but this was over the top, and irritating.

And then the government happened and I di

I absolutely loved Finn and had been chomping at the bit for the sequel. Diego made me a very happy woman though one part of the story made me say WTH?

It happens at the beginning of the book when Finn rescues a young woman from drowning, brings her back to the home he and Diego shared in Montana, to care for her. Diego comes back, eager for the pooka he loves only to have a silly, jealous tizzy fit seeing the woman wrapped in a blanket and in Finn's arms. Instead of at least TALKING about it ra

Some time has passed since the end of Finn and we find our boys in Montana. A miscommunication causes an accident that sends them both into the land of the Fae.

I found the Otherworld to be a rich setting with interesting characters. And we are introduced to a lot of new personalities.

Overall, I liked Diego a little more than the first book however, it felt like the book was told in three, distinctive parts parts. The first being the adventure in t

I adore Finn. When I finished his book, I immediately picked up Diego. I needed more Finn! Don’t get me wrong, Diego is a wonderful character too. He is Finn’s soul mate and he took good care of my Pooka. In this installment our guys are settled in Montana, living a seemingly happy life together. Diego travels a lot with his new found fame and worries about Finn being alone. It is not apparent how much insecurity he is feeling until he returns home early one day and finds Finn in bed asle

Finn and Diego are thrown into the Fae world when Diego wrongly thinks Finn is cheating on him. Diego draws in his full magic when his jealousy over rides his good sense ripping a hole between the two worlds. This one is darker than the first book. Sadly, I wish there had been more humor like the first, but it wasn't a humorous situation.

The Fae world is further explored. Relationships are reveal and more characters are fleshed out. The Fae become the center of attention by more than just the

Having marked this book as to read I'm now having doubts having read some reviews.

I loved the first book so much that I don't know if I want to tarnish the memory with what some reviews have classed as OOC behaviour for the two MCs. And having read reviews for book three I am even more concerned.

I think for the time being I will stop where I am.

If you love books on fae, this is a fantastic series.
Rating: 3.5 stars
While good, this book was no where near as good as the first one in the series. I think the problem was the author tried to cram too much stuff into it. There was just so much going on. From Diego accidentally opening the vail to government experimentation. Add in Diego and Finn’s relationship problems and it was a bit much. I must say that I felt really bad for Finn throughout. I understood his insecurity and I do think that Diego had a tendency to put everyone ahead of his rel

I was concerned that I might not like this story as much as I liked the first, but I shouldn't have worried. Both Diego and Finn need to learn to trust each other -- I think they may have finally gotten there by the end of the book. Lovely!

First, I think I have a few things to get off my chest....This is a re-release/re-write of sorts. It's been completely revamped from the inside out. You'll notice that not only have the covers become more enticing, the story (in my opinion since I haven't read the original) has matured as well. That being said, when looking at reviews for this book, please look at the most "recent" ones. It would be a same to judge from the past, and not the present.

This is the second installment to this series
Finn and Diego are back! :)

In Diego, a misunderstanding between Finn and Diego causes a tear in the Veil and they are sucked into the Otherworld. Separated and held by the different Fae courts, they must find each other again. But this is only the beginning...

Firstly, let me start with the reason that this only has four stars and not five, even though I loved it. On at least two separate occasions, it felt as though the book was nearing its climax, but, in reality, I wasn't that far through at a

I LOVE THIS BOOK! This series really…. So I sort of accidentally came across this series via Sid Love. I started reviewing books at the beginning of the year for Sid and he planned an author of the month event, Angel Martinez was one of the authors. I was not familiar with her books, looked at a list and saw the Endangered Fae books. They sounded fun and I asked for them. They were mid transition to a new publisher and not available. I told Sid to just pick something for me. He picked Angel’s Br ...more

I loved this book and this series!
Angel was concerned about my comment regarding Fae courts in a review for Finn, because they make an appearance in this book, however, it is still different than the courts have been portrayed before, this time there was a vulnerability along with the game playing and I liked that different perspective.
This one was a different kind of heartbreak for the doubts Finn goes through because as the reader, of course you know he should have no doubts, but he had to tra

Diego and Finn are settling into life in Montana when Diego, jealous, inadvertently opens a door into the Otherworld. Now the two are stuck on the other side where they are facing Finn’s past as well as quarrelling Fae and mysterious illnesses. Working together is the only option. But only if Diego and Finn can find a way around egos and old feuds. If that is not bad enough, returning lands them in the middle of U.S. Government investigations.

I love the progression of this series. It has so much

From my review: "When a book and characters are able to pull me into their story to the point that I forget the time and other things I need to be doing then I know that the author has accomplished their mission as a craftsman of tales, a first rate storyteller that would be welcomed at any fire or table around. That's how I felt about Diego (Endangered Fae #2) when I finally put down the Kindle and looked at the clock. I c
What should I say? I adored so many things in this story…the Otherworld…can I visit too? I loved the inhabitants of the Otherworld from the majestads, champions, heralds to all the other fae. How they are interacting with each other, who is the lover of whom or was the lover in another life, the connections of the fae among themselves as well as with the earth. Its all so richly described, the characters are great and of course the humour didnt fall short either.

Spectacular Continuation

The worlds that Ms. Martinez creates are amazingly rich in color and texture and Diego is no exception. Diego slips through the veil between the world of Fae and humans and has to battle old feuds and find a cure for what is killing the Fae.
This story is surrounded by magic, love, and tolerance. But what I love most is how we are allowed to see Finn and Diego’s HEA as they work together to blend their two worlds.

They are still as adorable as they were in the first book. Good descriptions on the fairy world. So glad to see that the author spent time to fully built the world and not just sparing a few paragraphs for it.

3.5 stars. I liked this overall. Lots of action and a great HEA ending. What I didn't like was our two heroes being apart for much of the book. I want romance in my stories and not quite so much angst and being apart. Maybe that's just me.

I almost don’t know where to begin with this. So much happens, it almost feels like different stories cobbled together. Diego and Finn are living in their new house in the Montana forest. Diego has to take a business trip to New York. While he’s gone, Finn saves a drowning women and tries to keep her warm. When Diego comes home and catches them together, his jealousy rips the Veil to the Otherworld open. Here the sidhe and fomorian courts are at odds. There is a wasting
