I chose this book to review because I was attracted by the cover. It’s so beautiful, dark and tempting. But I was sorely disappointed when I started to flip the book. This story is a steampunk story and there’s not really much I can say about this book. The story pace is not only too fast that i found it impossible to connect with the characters, but it is also confusing. There’s story in a story kinda thing and I don’t exactly sit too well with this sort of writing.
Give this book a try if you’re a steampunk fan. This book may not suit my taste, but it might suit yours.
I rate this book 2 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Carina Press via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book.
Journeying by steam-powered sled to London’s Frost Fair to perform, Tara and three friends are trapped in a blizzard in the woods. A gruff, handsome stranger offers them shelter-and wants one thing in return. Stories.
The travellers are glad to oblige. Their host, Rolph, is especially captivated by Tara’s story of an orphaned girl raised by the Fae in the world of the spirits. Equally intrigued by Rolph, and aware of an electric pull between them, Tara encourages him to share a story of his own. When Rolph weaves a tale of a man who is doomed by his own folly to turn into a wolf at the full moon, Tara suspects there is more than a grain of truth in his words.
When the veil between the mortal and spiritual worlds is parted, and danger threatens, will Tara make the ultimate sacrifice to save Rolph?
