I wish the library had the other books in the series

Jul 07, 2014

At first, I was hesitant, the beginning was a little confusing and I had no clue where this book was going. But then once everything started to make sense for the main character, I started to enjoy the book. I didn’t know much about it going in, the only reason I requested it was because I loved the cover honestly. However, after reading just 20% of it I knew it was going to be a great read.

The book reminded me of Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series, mainly because it was about faeries and Seelies and such. However, it also reminded me of my love for that genre. It has been so long since I read a book featuring faeries.

This one differed in many ways to the Iron Fey. One thing which I liked was the whole Salem and Boston aspect to it. This author put her own twist on the genre that I really enjoyed. It was refreshing.

Selkie Stewart, our main character, honestly is one of my new favourite protagonists. I loved how she always picked up things and kept them in her pouch; it was so unique. Also, she is as strong-headed as I, so I was able to relate to her in many aspects.

This book overall was very well written and it left me wanting more (which there is a sequel coming out in December). The only fault was some odd parts at the beginning and that is why it did not get full stars.

I really recommend this to anyone who enjoys books like the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa, and really anything with faeries.
