City of Fae by Pippa DaCosta
My first read by Pippa DaCosta and I can tell you it won't be my last.
Alina rescues a fae rockstar from certain death in a train station in London setting in motion an action intense storyline. For some unfathomable reason, Alina is utterly drawn to Reign, the rockstar.
Alina knows she is suppose to stay away from the fae. The fae in this world suck the living, essence, so to speak, out of the humans creating a slave like bond with their victims. Why does she keep taking the risk? She has convinces herself that its the story of the century but deep down there is magical pull keeping her invested in figuring out what is going on.
There is murmurs of an ancient and formidable queen which threatens the very fabric of society. Alina must unravel the truth before they are all under the fae spell. But what she discovers rocks her to the core.
Warning, this story is not for those with arachnophobia. Those creepy little suckers are everywhere.
I'm a huge fan of fae based books and believed I've pretty much read it all but City of Fae took me by surprise. Lets just say, man I didn't see that coming is a total understatement. Striking visual images jump off the pages in this great fae tale by Pippa DaCosta.
