Charles de Lint fans, this is the book for you!

This is the story of Pook, a homeless teen, set in a Victorian type setting wherein just being poor is a crime in and of itself, and the story of Alex, an young woman who ran away from a pre-arranged marriage and an ugly past in search of freedom and a better life. Add the fact that both Pook and Alex are part unseelie fae who are disconnected from their fae selves, and they are a natural match for one another.

The story itself is enchanting, the tale of how these two find themselves and one another against a backdrop of an ever raging war between the seelie and unseelie fae, where human casualties are not just a side effect, but a necessity. The author has her own take on the fae, and unlike the traditional roles wherein the unseelie are the enemy of humanity, in this book, the seelie are the bad guys.

The characters struggle to find their own humanity, and in the end, they learn that when it comes to love, it doesn’t really matter what kind of blood you have; all that matters is who you are. The ending is more of a beginning, and it leaves the reader chomping at the bit for the next book in the series. A perfect little love story for a lazy day. ( )
