I thought the premise of a fay genetic creature bent on vengeance interesting.For the first chapter it held together. It was downhill after that. Just a mixed up jumble of myths, stories, and stereotypes. Our heroine steals away from Fay, then holes up in a series of motels, learns English from TV, though she cannot read or write, knows a lot but somehow does not know what a fork is? (I am sure I have seen people eat on tv) speaks perfect English, except when she can't, is a terrific fighter, except when she is not, etc. Our hero is a 2 dimensional Native American, with mythic powers who has trouble with his feelings. His vocabulary is peppered with (helpfully translated) "indian"language. Other characters pop in and out ( to help drag out this tediously long narrative.) Lots of fight scenes, a little nooky. Needed a good editor to straighten out the storyline. I could go on, but this mess helped me get to sleep for several nights.
and Siobhan is pronounced Sheh-Van.

This was my first Elisa Paige novel. I enjoyed her world building. It intricate languages and how she tied Native American lore into the tale. The story is both hauntingly sad but hopeful at the same time. Felicity Munroe did an awesome job with the narration! I thoroughly enjoyed her work!
