My rating: ❤❤❤❤ of 5!
Did you ever wonder where Puck and Kale went for three weeks to sort out their differences, when Dia told them to get their shit together in Dianthe Rising?
Yeah, me neither. But that’s exactly what Fae Dominance is all about. Puck whisks him and Kale off to the Fae’s world, so they can benefit from time moving faster there and then work on their issues. That doesn’t sound too interesting does it? Well actually I enjoyed it a hell of a lot more than the first book in the series. I liked getting to know both Kale and Puck better and even though, this isn’t part of the main story line, I think you’ll miss out on a lot if you don’t read it. We get to hear more about Puck’s upbringing, how he came to serve the Fae king and all the countless atrocities he has committed while serving the king. We also get a better understanding of what goes on in Kale’s thick alpha head and honestly, I liked it a lot.
When I read Dianthe Rising I had a really hard time connecting with the characters because I didn’t see anything but hollow beings, that didn’t develop in any way, shape or form. But in this instalment, it helps that both Puck and Kale let go of their surface persona and each dig deeper. On top of that, when there’s trouble in the Fae world they each have to make a choice of how to cope now that they’re mates.
In reference to the main story line we do actually get to hear a little about the hunt, it even sounds like Dia was a target prior to meeting her dad. This could of course just be the way I read it, but either way, I’ll recommend this book if you’ve read Dianthe Rising but like me felt that the characters were too hollow to deal, you certainly won’t be thinking that after reading this instalment in the Dia McLearey series.
Normally I would recommend this book, because it’s rather awesome. However, as I don’t recommend the series it seemed a pointless. Shame really, because so far this one is the price winner.
Have you read the book? Thinking about reading it? Please comment and let me know.
