Genre: Modern/Paranormal Romance
Usually I hate romance novels, the ones that seem to take a turn for the more scandalous and cliche connections. So when I picked up this book I was fully prepared to loathe every second of this book and either A.) Get bored and never finish it. Or B.) Over analyze everything about it and pick it apart till it was just a mesh of words that had been read and reread over and over again. However, I was hoodwinked by myself and felt like I made a little bit of an ass out of myself by making an assumption. The story was captivating. After the first few pages I had to force myself to put it down and go to sleep or else I would have been to tired in the morning to get up.
Kaia is perfection and I love how the writer took her from that dropped her into a setting ripped everything away from her and turned her into someone that people could relate to. Yes , this may have read a little like a fairy Cinderella story but it was one that I instantly fell in love with. The struggles of the main characters were connected to real life situations and concepts that are not outlandish and over the top. Things were carefully planned and for all the secrecy and lies each were sharing in the end all the questions you build up and ask are answered. You love not only Kaia but her friends Jenny, Rachael , Ted... you see her develop from this cold calculating cruel creature into a true loving human. To understand both sides of her life and to embrace them with the same vivacious innocence.
All in all this was a wonderful book and the story was very well done, I can not wait to read more from Inara Scott and already look forward to seeing what she has to offer. I would love stories of all the Fae and hope that perhaps she has something tucked up her sleeve for later.
