The narrator spoke a bit too softly for me and at times it was so whispery I could barely understand what she was saying.
I love the juxtaposition of modern world with the classical faery mythos; the narrative it creates is very strong and interesting. It's such a great change to read a book with my "niche-interest mythology" without having to wade through dense purple prose in High Fantasy.
The traditional Seelie and Unseelie Courts is something that I don't see much in modern literature with faeries; that was very cool! I really loved how Zefer very clearly stated that the Courts aren't good versus evil, rather two tendencies which were far from absolute truths on morality, which is how it is in the original mythos.
The setting, and the explanation of how the world became what it is, is extremely interesting and was well-integrated into the plot since the very beginning. I liked how well all of it fit together plot-wise and also with the characterization both of the Hidden Lands and fae there.
I wish that we could have gotten more characterization on the Diamonds; I feel like I don't really know any of them, even Lily. I'm very curious about all the full fae too!
