Give Me, A Tale of Wyrd and Fae, L.K. Rigel
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I thought this sounded interesting, but wasn't sure if it was going to be part of a series – and have a hated cliffhanger... Still, I succumbed to the lure, and found that its a great read, a complete story, no cliffhanger!
One of the things that made me think it may be part of a series was the “tethers 1” addtion to the title. Having looked on LK's blog though I saw that its a complete book in an interconnected series. I love series but HATE cliffhangers, so when books are complete but connected as this is, I get everything I need in my reading ( providing the story is good of course!)
So, this book: well Lilith – what a sad start for her, with a real jerk boyfriend. Fortunately he doesn't last, and she's off seeking a change and taking a break in Dumnos. The whole way she found the place, the time, the people, was sort of a twisted co-incidence, and quite a magical, spooky interference if you have that mindset ( yep – I do!) and the closer she got the more the interfereces and coincidences stacked up.
I loved the people, the French girls, Mo, Lilith ( Lily) and Cade. She was an interesting person, one of those who'd make a good friend, who care about people, who we want the best for. Cade; he was a real flirt, and of course Lily was attracted to him, but so were the others on the tour, and then the attractions took a spooky turn. Lily wonders if its her he's attracted to, or the mysterious woman who keeps taking control of her...
It's a fun tale, full of times past, in the tenth century, married with the present. Things happen that overlap both periods and make for a fun, and somewhat suspeseful, story. There's lots to work out – not just who, but what and why. There's Fae connections too and it made for a book that was easy to read, engrossing and absorbing, and one I really enjoyed. I'd be happy to read more in the series.
Stars: Four, a great read, not heart stopping romance and suspense, but a gradual sliding and tempting into the mystery and people involved. A gentle, subtle romance, sensual withot being overtly sexual, with a satisfying ending too :-)
