Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book started off strong. I was excited to read a novel about the fae because it's not something that I've really delved into before. We're met with our main character Cate that can see the fae but has always been warned by her grandmother to ignore them, to never acknowledge them. She's done well with ignoring them for several years that is, until her friend is kidnapped by one which sets Cate off on a mission to rescue her.
Cate's fairy companion is Rook, a fae that has bee with her for years. He is enamored with her and is always watching her. Of course, because Cate hids her feelings, Rook doesn't think she can see him until she reveals that she can in an effort to get to the fae dimension so she can save her friend.
This book has lots of descriptions of the vast and strange fairy worlds but sometimes, the descriptions just border on lackluster. Sometimes I wonder how their world could be a fairy world because it just seems boring based upon descriptions.
Also, I realize that this is a romance but the romance just happens all the time freaking time! These characters just cannot keep their hands off each other. In my opinion, we could have delved deeper into the fae realm and the story of things if those characters would have done something else other than fondle each other. I just was not impressed with where the story went after Cate was introduced by Rook to the fae realm.
