Maggie Stiefvater plays with the old myths of fairies stealing people away and the idea that the fae are dangerous. I do enjoy her writing and this is the first of her books that I haven’t absolutely adored. I felt the relationship between Deirdre and Luke was a bit sappy and she wasn’t conflicted enough about it considering what she learns out. It doesn’t take much from her to go from sceptical to moony.
It’s an easy to read book but I find myself not really having much to say about it. Maybe I had too high expectations after Shiver and The Scorpio Races. I will probably read the sequel, Ballad, mostly because the fey world holds potential and I already have a copy!
