Forests of the Fae : Devlin's Door
This is a slow, unfolding mystery, with magic, faeries and intrigue, and which alternates between the past and present.
I love the opening pages of this book. Great description, an interesting character dynamic and dialogue that is realistic.
I also like the genuine shocks this has. The book gave me a jolt on more than one occasion and I feel creeped out after finishing it.
You don't know where this is going to go. The metaphors are marvellous. This also has more female characters than male, which is no bad thing as I don't think there is enough fiction with female perspectives.
The only criticism I have is the infuriating cliff-hanger and the wait for part two.
