Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time... 
A plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Ui Neiill, leaving a young midwife's father with months to live. To save her people, Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae. She must travel across the sea, through merrow and kelpie lands, to find a forgotten king on a crumbling throne. 
Born king of the Seelie Fae, Eamonn fought battles unnumbered to uphold honor, duty, and freedom - until his twin brother sank a blade between his shoulders. Crystals grew from the wound, splitting open skin and bone. His people banished him to a cursed isle for his disfigurement, now king of criminals and fools. 
With the help of brownies, pixies, and will-o'-the-wisps, Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne. 
This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart.

<Insert stone pun here>

Heart of the Fae tells the story of Sorcha, a midwife struggling to help her family through a deadly plague. When her father falls ill to the plague, Sorcha makes a deal and then sets off on a long journey, that unfortunately feels incredibly long and drawn out.

--Warning: this story has graphic descriptions of violence, sexual themes and actions--

Sorcha travels to a few different locations before finding the person who supposedly has the cure, Eamon, the 'Beast' of this story, and tries to get him to leave his brooding castle and come save her people. Spoiler alert, he won't go. There's quite a few scenes of her life in the otherworld, and quite the cast of characters, some of which are more memorable than others.

Unfortunately, the pacing of the story is very jumbled, with a lack of progress in plot for what feels like half of the runtime of this audiobook. Sorcha seems to forget about the urgency of her quest while the incredible unhealthy romance builds between Sorcha and the violent, brooding Eamonn. I recall one of Eamon's first comments about Sorcha being that {paraphrased} "she had been the first to calm his rage without his destructive temper tantrums". Their first few romantic scenes involve rather vivid descriptions and the pair continuing to engage with destructive behaviors when they bite each other hard enough to draw blood, using the mark as a brand.

But, all things considered, the concept is really fun as an Irish retelling of Beauty & the Beast. I am curious about what happens next in the story

This is my first experience of an Audio book. I'm a third of the way through but had to share my thoughts. I am really enjoying the book. It is beautifully narrated and the story is captivating. I will definitely keep listening and looking for more titles by the same Narrator and Author!
