Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Couldn't Love It I wanted to like this series so much. I really, really did. Lilith Saintcrow is fantastic at world-building. Her settings are dark and devious, the descriptions vivid and surreal. I love the idea she was going with and know we're only scratching the tip of the iceberg in terms of the world. But... I just couldn't fall in love with the story and essentially just tolerated the characters. I didn't get why everyone thought Robin was so special, and Gallow made a colossally stupid decision that definitely screwed him in the end. The book was way too padded with endless descriptions and chapters that didn't focus on the main characters or the central plot. I had a hard time recalling what was going on until I was slammed back in the story. I loathed the ending. It didn't bring me any closure. Some of the dialogue was pretty good, though there were times were Saintcrow was too vague about their interactions and the message she wanted to get across. I like to let my imagination wander, but I need some hints so I don't miss the idea the author is going for. I couldn't visualize the action scenes very well and didn't think Robin and Gallow's lack of interaction warranted the ending they had. The one character I was mainly interested in was Unwinter, who stole the spotlight whenever he showed up. I really am sad that I couldn't enjoy these books as much as I wanted to, but hopefully they'll appeal to other readers.

Editorial Reviews

"Saintcrow's urban fantasy series launch is expertly crafted with heartbreak and mistrust, far darker and lovelier than the title suggests... Saintcrow's artful, poignant descriptions remain with the reader long after the tale's end, as does the persistent sense of dark, unsettling unease."-Publishers Weekly on Trailer Park Fae
