Magic, Merlins and Mayhem,
This review is from: Blood and Iron (Roc Fantasy) (Mass Market Paperback)
What fun! A thoroughly detailed universe where the world of (modern) man is linked with the world of the Fae. Clever ideas link the two worlds - and with enough imagination you can see the shadows concealing the Seekers in your own house... A battle between the two worlds rages, bringing in Werewolves, King Arthur and a huge Dragon, along with a host of believable (but strange) characters from legend and myth (or perhaps Shakespeare) - Puck, Peaseblossom and an assortment of goblins, bogies and fairies.
The book is not at all "fey" but a robust tale (and the fairies swear!) that zooms along like a thriller, mixed with Arthurian Legend, a dash of fairy [faerie] tales and nursery rhymes, and the underlying theme of the legendary ballad of Tam Lin.
I have already ordered the second book in the series...
