Synopsis:

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae—beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles? Welcome to my world. What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh—did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae… every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface—not even me.

Review:

Wow!! This book was unexpected and surprising! The author had so many twists and turns within the plot and created such an exciting story! I don’t even know where to begin my review.

Ryder was a character that was difficult to fully understand. There were times throughout the book, I thought he was one of the good guys. But then the author had you questioning his motives, especially when the book switched perspectives. I’m still undecided on which side of the good versus evil line Ryder falls. The ending makes you want to put him on the evil side but there are just to many questions left unanswered for me to decide.

The main character, Synthia, is strong, determined, and everything you would want out of a survivor. Considering everything she has went through, it’s amazing she is still fighting. I’m not sure where the author plans on taking the character. By the end of the book, she has lost almost everyone who she considered family, found out she is the one thing she hates most, and signed a contract with possibly the worst evil Fae out there. Her past is not only confusing but haunting. I wonder how much more she can take.

Overall, this book was amazing. I found myself blushing during parts of the book but never wanting to put the book down. There are some grammatical errors that take away from the story but those are easily overlooked.
