4.7 stars- I loved this fantasy. It is a new fresh look at the Fae human world mixing, and messed up Fae politics. We follow a young woman who has been serving the fae for 10 years, since she was 16. She has never doubted them, until she meets (kidnapped by him) one of the rebels that she has helped to thwart over the years. Aren, the rebel shares his knowledge with her and has her questioning her long time protector Kyol. War, death, mistrust and years of yearning all take their toll.
This books takes off right from page one and never dulls down. I enjoyed every page and can't wait to get book 2.
