After defeating an evil wendigo, a man and his pooka lover deserve a little quiet, don’t they? Unfortunately, Diego and Finn’s hard-won peace is disturbed, their new life in Montana turned upside-down when Diego, in a jealous rage, unwittingly rips a hole in the impenetrable Veil to the Otherworld.
Separated, stuck on the other side of the Veil where Finn has to deal with old conflicts and Diego is the only human in a land of fae, the two of them are forced to navigate rocky waters between huge egos and ancient feuds. To make matters worse, some of the fae, in both the sidhe and Fomorian courts, are dying of a mysterious illness and everyone believes Diego is the key to a cure.
Things can’t possibly get any worse, can they?
Oh, yes—it can when the U.S. government gets involved.
Not having read the first one in the series put me at a serious disadvantage.
Finn is Fae and Diego is human. Their story began in the first book, aptly named Finn.
Diego and Finn are settling in for some down-time in Montana. Diego is away on business and Finn is left on his own. While Finn is down by the lake he hears a distressed call from a young woman. After he saves her and takes her home, Diego returns to find Finn in a situation that immediately threatens what they have accomplished together so far. Diego inadvertently sets off a chain of events which ends up finding both he and Finn trapped on the other side in the Fae world.
The author is very good at world building. I was fascinated with the politics of the Fae world, the interactions among the characters and the tension between Finn and Diego. When you add the deadly sickness on top of everything that was going on, this made for a very interesting read.
There is a wealth of twists and turns in this story and it would only help you to know what is going on if you read the first one. I strongly suggest it.
