Helene Whitney has been losing time. Not losing track of time, but missing hours, finding whole blank spaces in her day she can’t account for. A year ago she would have put it down to overwork and exhaustion, but that was before she found out about the Good Neighbors, the Fair Folk, the Beautiful People, the Fae.
Ancient, immortal, tricksy and cruel, these creatures out of myth and legend rule the Irish enclaves of South Boston and Charlestown, and one of them has been using magic to abduct and control Helene for hours every day, gaining access to the collection at her museum and searching for ancient objects of Fae power.
Now, Helene’s only hope of escaping this unknown assailant lies with the Fae sorcerer, Miach MacCecht, a man she knows she can never trust—and who may prove impossible to resist.
I was anxiously waiting for this book. I’m already smitten with the world of the Fae, and ever since reading the first book, and being introduced to the ruthless Fae sorcerer Miach, I wanted more.
It’s no secret that I love these cold creatures, I mean, don’t we all find the cold and dangerous ones so sexy? Many of my book boyfriends tend to be on the dark side, I guess it’s a weakness of mine. And Miach, well, let’s just say he seems to have all the delicious cookies.
I was already drawn to Miach’s character from the previous book. He was portrayed as the embodiment of the true Fae character, with his cold and calculated view of life. Fae people are not ones to bring home to your mama, let me tell you. They’re very hard to deal with- a test for your wits and patience-, and Miach was very much Fae. But of course, to go with his scary character, he was also very much human. Sure, he had a tough guy facade going on, and he was a criminal through and through, but he was also the kind of guy to hold a grudge against the young man who seduced his granddaughter and got her with child-childbirth is very dangerous for the Fae.
