Fae by C.J. Abedi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This had better be the start of a new series with many books, otherwise I will be completely disappointed! I was completely in love with one of the two main characters, Caroline, from her first POV chapter (the book hops back and forth between a few POVs). She's lovable in a real way -- complete with flaws and nerdy-ness. Her star-crossed lover story with Devilyn (I know, forgive the name) was heartbreaking and at the same time completely sizzling. Their awkward back and forth through most of the book had me cringing and laughing out loud at parts.
I don't want to skip out on mentioning the supporting characters, either. Teddy and Odin (and Famous) were all really great additions to the story. This wasn't your "typical" book about the Fae. There was a great historical spin to this book that I wasn't expecting to really enjoy as much as I did.
The only gripe I had (which is almost specifically a "me" thing) is that the POV changes made me dread the obligatory "bad guy" POV coming up every few chapters. I could have done without that, and it did slow my reading a bit. Other than that, I really had no story complaints. I'm mad at the cliffhanger ending and would have liked some happiness, but it will bring me back to read the next installment, for sure.
