Kept me guessing...

I really liked this book, it kept me guessing and there are a lot of twists that just sneak up on you. I am surprised this didn't fall into the erotic section as well as romance, I am not complaining but if you don't like sex scenes in your book this is not for you. There are quit a few sex scenes but they don't detract from the overall book, they are the dark Fae after all, the sex just pulls you further into the story.

I can't wait until April for the next one!!

So, Miss Lennox, Do You Have Any Other Hobbies?

This book is not for the faint of heart among you. There is a LOT of sex -- having it, dreaming it, or reliving it.

That being said, I love Charlotte Featherstone's writing. She weaves such rich detail into her work and in spite of some repetitive plot action (i.e., sex), she manages to not become trite with the words she uses. I have read other books where overused words make the book difficult to finish (you know the words I mean), but Ms. Featherstone's vocabulary is extensive without being laughable.

The plot is interesting enough to carry a nine hour book. The Unseelie Fey must bring the personification of the the seven Virtues to their court willingly to break a curse set by an angry Seelie queen. Chastity Lennox and her sisters are Virtues being seduced by the Unseelie to save their court and by the Seelie out of revenge. It is a nice twist on the "good versus evil" theme. It is easy to root for the bad guys.

Helen Stern is an excellent narrator for this book. She manages the many accents well and keeps the characters straight. I look forward to the continuation of the series and I hope that Helen Stern narrates them all.
