My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I liked it, but didn't love it. The plot was cool but not exactly original, and I really thought Raveling could have done a better job with setting. I really don't think we need another book about a society hidden in the human world by magic or some other mess like that. It's just a little played out. But this is coming from a fantasy writer who creates new worlds and locations instead of trying to spice up the same old boring one (i.e., Earth).
However, location/Earth aside, I liked the characters. Their names were awesome and beautiful, and Kendra Irisavie was great. I love female leads who wreak havoc on the world for whatever reason, justified or not. Chloe (my new favorite name) Moreaux and Aubrey Rossay were cool complementary characters but I would've loved to have seen them more developed. I just couldn't relate to them as essential parts of the plot which kept me from truly liking them as much as I wanted to. I want to like the "friends" as much as the main character. Same goes for Prince Belicoux (Tristan). Kendra might have been googoo-gaga over him, but I wasn't. I actually liked Julian LeVeq better, but maybe that's what Raveling wanted. Who knows.
Overall, a nice, easy read. If you're into Amanda Hocking's Trylle Trilogy, you'll be into this.
