    There’s not a huge amount of paranormal in this first book - it’s more realistic fiction, more about the characters and in particular Imogen, but I’m thinking that will probably increase as the series continues. I have to say I didn’t really like Imogen to start with, mostly because of some of the decisions/mistakes she made, and I kept tooing and froing between not being keen on her, but then feeling empathic towards her because of understanding why she did some of the things she did - or didn’ There’s not a huge amount of paranormal in this first book - it’s more realistic fiction, more about the characters and in particular Imogen, but I’m thinking that will probably increase as the series continues. I have to say I didn’t really like Imogen to start with, mostly because of some of the decisions/mistakes she made, and I kept tooing and froing between not being keen on her, but then feeling empathic towards her because of understanding why she did some of the things she did - or didn’t do. She did recognise and acknowledge these though and it was enjoyable (and a bit of a relief) seeing Imogen put right those mistakes as the story progressed - until she didn’t, with one biggie! The author has done a great job in creating a realistic character in Imogen, with the complexities and contradictions of human (fae?) nature and the internal emotional battles faced due to trauma(s). For me Brendan’s change from living rough for 20 years to being back amongst society seemed a bit of a quick transition and adaptation, even knowing his past and with the present developments that occurred (trying not to do any spoilers!) but I liked his character. The storyline, murder mystery and character development flowed and progressed nicely. The book is well written and is an interesting and enjoyable read. Although I didn’t really connect or feel engaged with the MC, I did feel for her at times, with all she had been through and continued to go through and I think this is a good start to the series. I’m intrigued to see how the storylines and the characters develop in future books - book 2 is already on my tbr list - I’d recommend giving it a read I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

But she was a faerie and he was human. Her father Mark never wanted them together. She was born with a special birthmark and was destined for something greater. And one night, Michael was murdered. A witch warned Imogen she was also in danger and gave her a protective amulet she could use only one time to save herself. It wasn’t until later when Imogen went into her father’s garage and looked in a toolbox. She saw something glinting… it was the ring Michael had worn the day he died. And she knew her father had murdered him. A grisly murder in Central Park, rumored to be an attack by a lycanthrope, prompts the police to hire Imogen to use her Fae powers to help them. The police have arrested Brendan Connor, a homeless man, but she knows he is innocent. After living wild and alone for so long, Brendan trusts no one. But he needs to open up to Imogen and work with her to find out who did this or more people would die. And in racing to solve the crime, their relationship is changing. What is drawing them together? The story line, murder mystery, and character development was done well and let the reader wonder at each step what was going on. This was a different approach, but well-written and intriguing to read.

    Book 1 in a 6 book series starts off with the heroine, Imogen, facing an uncertain future after her husband serves her divorce papers after a 20 year marriage. I strongly suggest that readers read the prequel, which introduces Imogen, a young fairy with a bright future, before her life changes drastically, and helps you understand where she is coming from, literally. The main characters are well drawn, and their stories well told. I’m looking forward to reading further books in the series.

    It’s never easy starting over, at any age, but throw a murder, and fae powers into the mix and you have the start of a new series. I found the story hard to get into at first, but the plot line was intriguing and the characters were appealing. Great start to the series.

    Storyline had potential. The storyline had potential but the dialogue was unbelievably stilted and the punctuation mistakes made it hard to read. I never developed an interest in the characters and honestly never cared what happened to them. I just was grateful to finish the book and will not be reading the rest of the series.

    Wow! I recommend this intense and beautifully written book to readers who love reading imaginative and mysterious fantasy. It takes the reader from the Scotland to New York, thru perilous dangers to a truly deep understanding of what it takes to make a happy life, even in the midst of turbulence. Enjoy!

    Good story writing needs work The story is interesting and the characters are relatable. But there are some rough spots grammatically. The writing or digital version needs editing or better editing. Some of the explanation seems repetitive.

    2 Star Although the premise of the story was intriguing, the drawn out mania of the central character overshadowed any enjoyment of the story.
