I am in absolute awe of this book. At first I thought the beginning was a smidge slow and was unsure how it was going to progress and fit into the rest of the book BUT that completely changed as I kept reading. When it picked up it really picked up! Everything fit perfectly together, the mmc is way more than morally grey he's definitely not a good guy but it works well. The words and confessions that came out of Mendax's mouth was so beautifully written. The FMC Callie, at first she seemed super stiff and honestly kind of bitchy, but once she got into the fae realm her character really developed. The author really depicted these two MC's internal struggles really well. Callie's internal monologue was exactly what my own would be if I fell into an unseelie fae realm. Chef's kiss!
