With a start that intense and dark, it should be a good read……
I have to admit, it felt very surreal reading this at the moment…..
The pandemic sweeping the world feels like an invasion and so I found it hard work at first, and then to find out it written within another series I did have to wonder if I was missing a little information.
But as I travelled further into the book, I didn’t worry about another series, I only wondered and worried about the characters in this book.
So a quick recap, the world was invaded by a plague then an invasion of dark Fae, I get the impression they don’t want to rule us, they want to wipe us off the face of this planet….
They burn their way through the world taking very few prisoners, not sure why they want to wipe humans from existence.
Coralie and a small group of people have banded together for safety, but they are being picked off a couple at a time.
But now, they want to fight back, they want to hurt the dark Fae, or at least die trying! What I like about Coralie is the fact she’s not a hero, she’s a coward, but in her position I’d be the same, I’d be hiding behind the door, and out the door! In fact she’s thinking of taking her own life! She’s had enough of trying to survive, but with each battle she’s survived, but if they take her out, she won’t be sorry to leave this scorched and barren world!
And coming face to face with a fae it’s not instant love, it’s not even dislike, it’s fae trying to kill Coralie and the people she’s travelling with, and it’s humans trying to kill the dark Fae, it bloody, brutal and graphic….
And now she’s a prisoner of the dark fae, not dead, oh no, because she has something that’s important to her survival!
It’s a dark fantasy.
Not my normal reading material, and I have to admit it’s darker than I thought it might be, but a fabulous read. It feels like your living in the moment with Coralie, your hiding from the fae, your palms get sweaty and I definitely got the tension that the author was building.
Nothing is skipped in this short story, really well written, descriptions come alive and your running for your life.
And I can’t wait to see where this story takes us……
And just to warn you, it’s a cliffhanger!!
