Blurb: Jeremiah Gallow is just another construction worker, and that’s the way he likes it. He’s left his past behind, but some things cannot be erased. Like the tattoos on his arms that transform into a weapon, or that he was once closer to the Queen of Summer than any half-human should be. Now the half-sidhe all in Summer once feared is dragged back into the world of enchantment, danger, and fickle fae – by a woman who looks uncannily like his dead wife. Her name is Robin, and her secrets are more than enough to get them both killed. A plague has come, the fullborn-fae are dying, and the dark answer to Summer’s Court is breaking loose.
Be afraid, for Unwinter is riding…
Review: I could not force myself to finish this. The writing style came across as someone with grandiose plans of writing high literary fiction. Considering that is not at all what is expected when reading the blurb, it was incredibly disappointing. Most people pick books like this up to read for entertainment, not a reminder of high school English and the Shakespeare unit they had to plow through.
The vague and archaic style that this book was entirely written in made reading it a chore rather than a joy. If I have to spend tons of time while reading a few sentences to try and decipher the meaning, and even then it is only a guess, then it is a complete waste of that time. Again, I’m reading for entertainment, not a class credit.
