Hmm, first off, the prologue is crap and best skip it entirely else you ll just confuse yourself into thinking it s revelant to the following story Which it isn t.The actual beginning of the story is sort of confusing mainly because we re not sure exactly in which kind of setting the story is happening in We ve got magical creatures such as troll, fairies, banshees, etc, in what looks to be the normal human world There s also some confusion as to whether they can be seen by humans or not It seems like some can and others can t Not explained in any way either as to why Once you finally realize that O Grady is the drunk banshee s name as well as the name of the clan he is protecting , some of the confusion clears up.I think this story showed a very sad but true fact about how people humans for them tend to take sexual relations very lighty Something that greatly confuses our little fairy friend Maeebsef which is under the deluded notion that he is now bonded to a human because he sucked him offThis story is mainly about O Grady helping Maeebsef find his human even though he clearly sees that what happened between the fairy and the human was nothing to write poetry about He s thankfully there to pick up the pieces when Maeebsef finally learns the truth about his silly crush.And when O Grady and Maeebsef start getting closer not all is well when O Grady s duties comes knocking on his door.All in All I did enjoy this book enough that I most likely will
Good m m urban fantasy about the male banshee of the Clan O Grady who befriends a naive young fae lost in New York City. Fantasy Sci fi is always hit and miss for me, but, man, I loved this I haven t read anything by Riley that I didn t love yet, so I shouldn t be surprised This had a nice balance of a few laughs, a few sniffly moments and a great big smile at the end 4.5, bumping up to 5 for goodreads.
