Just how did I go from hating Tray to thinking he’s the best thing since sliced bread?
This author’s work never disappoints me. Her stories hold me spellbound, her characters step of the page and become my friends and her imagination just wows me. I really, really enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the Midnight Fae series.
At first I thought Tray was a real ass, particularly with his talk of “games” and his plans for Ella. However he soon realised that would never be the correct way to introduce her to her future and I soon found myself genuinely liking him. He continued to tease and torment Ella but he also treated her with respect and love. He really is a swoon-worthy hero. Ella is an amazing heroine, snarky, strong and spectacular as all hell. She’s really got the rough end of the stick but Tray offers her a future she never even dreamed existed.
I totally believed in their connection, they have a chemistry and passion that explodes of the page, leading to some very, VERY, steamy moments. The story is set mainly in the human realm, and involved some significant time jumps. Not only were all clearly labelled but they didn’t affect the flow of the story either, instead they allowed the pace to be maintained and avoided any tedious “fluff and filler”.
This is a wonderful story, one I’m only too happy to recommend, and a great introduction to a new Fae realm. You don’t need to have read any prior books that are linked to the series, and as a stand alone it’s ideal for sampling both a taste of this authors amazing writing and getting to know the wonderful universe she has created.

She stole my heart, once upon a time. Three years ago in an alley where she left me with a pair of sodden blue slippers.

But first, we’ll play a little game.
One that will end in destruction.
Because f*ck fairy godmothers.
What Ella needs is a Dark Fae.
One who can help her burn Darlington Academy to the ground.
A Dark Fae like me.
