tl;dr |✭✭✭✭✩| ELIZABETH MAY, HOW COULD YOU LEAVE THE BOOK LIKE THAT??? Read this book people. READ. IT.
Description Lady Aileana Kameron is not your average lady. For one, she wears pants. She tinkers with inventions. She sees fairies. Oh, and she hunts them down and kills said fae too. Aileana's mother was killed by a particularly vicious fae on the night of Aileana's debutante ball, and since then she has sworn vengeance against the fairy that killed her mother. But Aileana struggles with keeping up her reputation amidst her fae hunting, and being the only child in the family means she must secure a good marriage to help pick up her already tarnished name. Aileana doesn't want that life, however, the life of marraige and balls. And she must decide what to do, as a trouble with the fae is ever growing.
So, I believe this was Ms. May's first novel. It was quite enjoyable, but you can kind of tell its her first novel too. Not that it is poorly written, but the pacing and general storytelling do feel like its early on in her writing career. Anywho, this book has a great setting (Edinburgh, Scotland) and wonderful characters.
Gosh, I'm trying to figure out how to talk about this book without giving anything away, and thats really quite difficult. OK lets get into the characters!
So Aileana aka Kam. She is a very intriguing, and there is definitely room for a ton of character growth within her. Seeing her mother die had a profound affect on her. I love her interactions with the little pixie and Mac, so much sass to be had.
I am absolutely terrible at remembering details of this book. And I read in an article somewhere that people who read books in the actual physical book form retain the information and story better than they do if they read a story from an e-reader. I read this on my iPad, so I'm definitely believing it.
Sorry for the segway, and the lack of real info. But basically this book is full of awesome sass, a vicious female heroine, gorgeous men, and a funny pixie who gets drunk on honey. (Spoiler alert, sorry. Its not really vital to the story). Read it and enjoy!
