It’s dispiriting to
think that a traditional “paranormal romance” cliché – “I must resist the allure of this beautiful yet dangerous man” – may be the high point that the rest of a novel struggles to live up to, but that’s the case here. A twist halfway through the book changes everything you thought was going to happen, and soon you’re looking nostalgically back on the yearning phase as a better, simpler time.
Alina is an ex- reporter looking for a story; in rock star fae Sovereign she may have found it. As Alina struggles to follow the “no- touching ” rules for fae, she learns there’s more to the beautiful creatures than humans know.
Starting out so- so and heading downhill as the story gets ever more outrageous, this feels like bad fanfic for a TV series you never wanted to watch. Rhian Drinkwater
