New to me author, new to me series and I am seriously in love. The story was great, the supernatural world Jayne Faith has built is awesome and the characters make me want to quickly rush out and get more of Ella Grey's stories so a well deserved 5-star review.
The main problem with this book is that the author let the world building overrun what is essentially a good story. I understand why she did this but it stopped me from emotionally engaging with the characters who had plenty of depth. There were also a number of typos and/or editing mistakes though they weren't too distracting. One thing did bother me was how selfishly insensitive the MC was portrayed at times. I didn't like the way she aggressively questioned her new workmate's career choice when it was clearly not her business and he was obviously uncomfortable. She also put two unsuspecting allies in danger when she blatantly used them to help her rescue someone. She also used and betrayed the trust of another individual when she could have simply been honest and then asked for help. It all may have been for a good cause but it was the wrong way to go about it. Over all though, these issues won't stop me from giving the next book a chance to prove the series's worth.
This story includes a lot of scene setting for the next book and that was a nice change. We get to wonder how the main characters interact and where they go from here. Story a little slow but I'll give the next book a try before I decide if this story is for me or not.
