New York Times bestselling author Lilith Saintcrow returns to dark fantasy with a new series where the fairy world inhabits diners, dive bars and trailer parks.

Jeremy Gallow is just another construction worker, and that’s the way he likes it. He’s left his past behind, but some things cannot be erased. Like the tattoos on his arms that transform into a weapon, or that he was once closer to the Queen of Summer than any half-human should be. Now the half-sidhe all in Summer once feared is dragged back into the world of enchantment, danger, and fickle fae—by a woman who looks uncannily like his dead wife. Her name is Robin, and her secrets are more than enough to get them both killed. A plague has come, the fullborn-fae are dying, and the dark answer to Summer’s Court is breaking loose.

Be afraid, for Unwinter is riding…

Quick & Dirty: Fae are dying, and Robin is on a mission to find Gallow and have him help save everyone.

Opening Sentence: Summer, soft green hills and shaded dells, lay breathless under a pall of smoky apple-blossom dusk.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Jermiah has left behind his past…well his fae past. He has been living like a mortal long before his wife Daisy died. He is working construction and living a very human life until the day she walks into the bar. Robin looks just like Daisy, she isn’t but she looks just like her and she is looking for Gallow and running from Unwinter. There is a plague that is killing full blooded fae.

She is also looking for Puck, but she finds Gallow first and he is drawn into running with her. He has secrets and so does she, and neither of them trust much. But they will need allies in order to stay alive in the game that is ahead for them.

Soon it becomes an all out race against time, the plague and Unwinter. Will Robin and Jermiah be able to find out what is going on? Will they be able to save each other and everyone else?

I wasn’t blown away by this, but I did enjoy it. I wasn’t a total fan of some of the prose and wording, but I did like the world building and I was intrigued by the concept. Robin and Jermiah are half fae, he fled to marry his mortal wife Daisy, and Robin still belongs to Summer’s court. Jermiah has a lot of ties to the Court and relationships he would like to forget, but he and Robin seemed to mesh well and no romance so far.

I am not sure if I am disappointed, sometimes I prefer no romance in a story, but I like them and I do hope to see some sparks really start flying.

Notable Scene:

It didn’t matter. She wasn’t Daisy, she couldn’t be Daisy… but still. He knocked one man aside, ducked another flung beer bottle, threw his arm up as someone tossed a bar stool. It was nothing but reflex: the leg almost clipped his skull but the cursed sidhe speed was still with him. Everything slowed down, droplets and shards of glass hanging in struggling air, faces contorted with rage. Jermiah moved.

Gallow and Ragged Series:

1. Trailer Park Fae

2. Roadside Magic

3. Wasteland King
