Disclosure Note: I received a copy of the book to review from the author.
It’s been quite a while since the last time I’ve read a book in what was effectively one sitting. There were a couple of breaks for dinner and driving back from a trip to a nearby lake which made this several marathon sessions rather than one continuous one. Still, anything that can keep me that focused is worth taking note of.
The story primarily follows Eilidh, an outcast Fae, and Munro, a police officer in Perth Scotland, as they hunt a killer who is well beyond the abilities of human authorities to handle. Life throws them together in a way that neither of them could have imagined, nor really believe, and they find something extremely rare and potent that will change each of the forever.
If I had to put forward one word to describe the feel of this story it would be whirlwind. As I said, I read the book from cover to cover (it was in ebook form so they were virtual covers) in a little over nine hours time, so that might have had something to do with the rushed feeling I had while reading. The pace of the story left me a little breathless and, in a few places, wishing there was more meat to things.
Overall, I would rate this book at 4 stars. Even if it went a little fast, Blood Faerie was a good read and well worth the time reading it.Reading - The Other Half of Writing
