Synopsis: Seductive. Cruel. Bored
Be wary of…
Prince and his fairy courtiers are staggeringly beautiful, unrelentingly cruel, and exhausted by the tedium of the centuries―until they meet foster-siblings Josh and Ksenia. Drawn in by their vivid emotions, undying love for each other, and passion for life, Prince will stop at nothing to possess them.
First seduced and then entrapped by the fairies, Josh and Ksenia learn that the fairies’ otherworldly gifts come at a terrible price―and they must risk everything in order to reclaim their freedom.
Review: I was really curious to discover this novel. I loved the cover as soon as I saw it, and I must admit that the faes are my big weak point! So I could not wait to immerse myself in the story. However, I must say that I didn’t expect this and finally, by forcing myself to continue reading it to see if things would improve, I preferred to give up.
In fact, it wasn’t necessarily the plot that bothered me, but it was mainly the relationship between Josh and Ksenia. I was really uncomfortable and I found it too unhealthy. Our two characters are brothers and sisters, even if not by blood, and live in foster care. So far no problems, but Josh is obsessed with his sister, he absolutely wants to sleep with her and make her understand that they are made for each other so that she finally gives in. And that, for me, was very complicated. Especially since he is 16 years old, if I am not mistaken, and at some point she tells him that if at 21 he still wants to, they will discuss it again. And now it gets even more complicated.
This novel may be for others, but I was too uncomfortable to continue it.
Yeah, when you get uneasy with a story, its tough to keep at it. Too bad! 🙂
yeah it’s complicated
I hate DNF’ing especially when something has or could have so much potential. So sorry this didn’t work out for you.
This is the second DNF I’ve seen for this book, with similar complaints, so you aren’t alone! Sorry it didn’t work for you though.
yeah that’s what I saw too… complicated this one
I just got this one, and I’m really excited to read it. Hopefully I’ll have an easier time. Sorry it wasn’t for you.
Ash @ JennRenee Read
I hope so for you too. I would be curious to see your opinion.
Sorry to hear you didn’t like it more. I love the cover for it.
Aww… sorry to hear this was a DNF!! Although from what you’re sharing- yes I can see why.
it was complicated
Yea, I don’t think this one would be for me either. Hopefully the next will be so much better.
Yeah, if adult foster children date I would be ok with that..but while they are living in the foster home..nope. nope, nope. The cover is gorgeous. Shame.
end she really feels like he is her brother, not just another kid
So glad I decided not to go for this one. Her last book didn’t work for me, and it sounds like this one has a lot of the same issues.
I understand why you would be uncomfortable with the relationship. That is a big no no for me.
it’s something so difficult
Always disappointing when that happens 🙁
Sorry this one didn’t work out for you, Melliane. I hope your next read is better.
Ughhhh yea – I would have an issue with it too
