I liked this one but I didn't love it. Glad I read it? Yes.
My full review is in the link above. ( )

I really like the concept, of it being a modern town with modern technology, intersecting with Faerie and magic. The last probably quarter took me from, "I really like this book" to, "Wow, I LOVE this book." ( )

This book was so delightfully creepy. Creepy is not usually my genre, but this book pulled it off without too much focus on the horror parts of the story(and there were some). I thought the characters were interesting and the romance balanced nicely to not overtake the story, but present enough to be nice. ( )

I thought this was a much darker fariy novel. I did like the characters and the world building but the conflict could have been stronger at points and the plot did drag. I really did love the myth she created in this book and the darker story that we got. The thing that stood out to me was the world building and the characters. I feel like the plot was unbalanced at points and slow burn but I am glad I read it. I am excited to see what ties it has to her cruel prince series! ( )

Epigraph
Come now, my child, if we were planning to harm you, do you think we'd be lurking here beside the path in the very darkest part of the forest?

-- Kenneth Patchen
Dedication
For Sarah Rees Brennan, a great friend and an inspiration
First words
Down a path worn into the woods, past a stream and a hollowed-out log full of pill bugs and termites, was a glass coffin.
