    A Nice Surprise

    This is definitely different than what I usually read in terms of the character progression and subject matter. I was really drawn to the Irish twist to fae lore and I have never seen that genre mixed with steampunk which brought out a really rich and complex environment. Aileana is a classical strong and bad ass warrior/debutante walking the line between the life of a lady and that of a warrior hell bent of destroying the creature that killed her mother and the rest of the faery race. Ultimately she's a puppet to her own fate and despite wanting desperately to choose her own fate she continues to do exactly what is expected and "destined" for. In the end she honestly does nothing to against expectation whether it comes to her father, her engagement, or even the war with the fae. Her character is fueled by rage and guilt making her one dimensional and predictable. Aileana is ultimately overshadowed by her mentor and partner, Kiaran MacKay who even described as stoic and unfeeling block ice, has more depth and interest in his character. The mystery behind why he hunts his own kind with Aileana, his past and his conflicted displays of emotions cover for the repeating drawl of Aileana's emotions and conflicts. The story is jam packed with heart racing action and plot twists which carried me through the book. Danger lurks around every corner and the action is vivid and incredible. Cliffhanger is a bloody bitch though.

    Fantastic read

    I loved this book but hated the 'to be continued' ending like they do on TV. I would have preferred a more complete ending as opposed to a serialized one. Especially if the wait is over a year. The main character's fixation on her rage although understandable started to wear thin towards the end. perhaps it felt overemphasized after a while. Otherwise a great read that I sped through

    Worth a binge read later

    I enjoyed the plot and pacingof this book. Any book set in Edinburgh already has my attention. The main character's relationship with her father was especially well done. I have to say that I wouldn't recommend reading the book until the rest are out. The ending was frustrating and would only have held my interest if the next book was already available. It's good, but not compelling enough to make me want to go out and get the next one a year after I finished the first.
