Goodreads synopsis:

Unjustly sentenced to death, Eilidh ran–away from faerie lands, to the streets of Perth, Scotland. Just as she has grown accustomed to exile, local police discover a mutilated body outside the abandoned church where she lives. Recognising the murder as the work of one of her own kind, Eilidh must choose: flee, or learn to tap into the forbidden magic that cost her everything. 

My review:

I liked this book. Of course anything with faeries in it, I am sure to love. But this book was very dark. I almost didn’t sympathize with Eilidh at first, but the more I read, the more I began to understand her. Her accidental awakening of Monroe’s druid power was unreal, and I felt terrible for her. Only because you could see how starved for attention she was.

Quintin Monroe came across as a bumbling oaf. I am not sure if the author meant for it to come across that way, but it did. I did get a few giggles out of certain scenes. The scene with Eilidh stripping down in front of him was hilarious because of how innocent she was.

The mystery part of the book wasn’t a mystery because you knew who was doing the killing. And let’s say, about that, poetic justice.

I will reread this book and read the other books in the series. Sure thing. From what I looked into, the series gets!! Can’t wait to read them!!!
