A Houston college student, McKenzie Lewis, can track fae by reading the shadows they leave behind. For years she has been working for the fae king, tracking rebels who would claim the Realm. Her job isn't her only secret. She's in love with Kyol, the King's sword master - but human and fae relationships are forbidden. When McKenzie is captured by Aren, the fierce rebel leader, she learns that not everything is as she thought. And McKenzie must decide who to trust and where she stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.
"Featuring a gutsy heroine and plenty of fay lore, this urban fantasy debut should appeal to fans of Seanan McGuire's October Daye novels." (Library Journal)

Incredible new series

No, I generally like this genre.
I don't know. The book was so mind-numbingly awful that I can't give an objective review of her narration. I didn't HATE her. So that's something.
The best part was when it was over.
This read like something written by a thirteen-year-old. At its best, the prose was cliche. The rest of the time I was cringing. I had no affinity with any of the characters. The protagonist was obnoxious, unrealistically oblivious, and not the least bit interesting. I found myself wondering how she had managed to live into her twenties with absolutely no survival instinct whatsoever.
The fact that she was extremely obstinate wouldn't normally bother me if I couldn't tell that it was merely the author's lazy attempt to artificially insert conflict into the narrative.
