Overall: So good! Definitely a must read for fans of Rose Gate (but serves perfectly well as a stand alone, or introduction to Hanna Sandvig’s work!)
Characters: Highly Enjoyable!
Plot: Um…slightly of THC’s Scarlet mixed with….Lol, the Rose Gate was what stuck out after that statement, just read it! XD
Page Turner: Yes
Series Cont.? Yes! (It’s a series of stand alones, but still recommend reading them all if your a fan for the ‘easter eggs’ and cameos!)
Favorite Character: Eh…I want to bad to say Gavin, but my favorite scene is one that doesn’t include him…But yeah, overall Gavin is too lovable for his own good!
I beta read this back at the beginning of the years, then read it again in a finished version offered for a limited time though the author’s newsletter. As I’m not big on rereading, as I have too many other books I want to get to, that says a lot!
I’ve loved each addition Hanna adds to her Fae world, and this one might just be my current favorite! I mean I’ve always been a fan of the ‘bad boy with a heart of gold’/’rebel with a cause’ type characters, and well tattoos seem to help….but really WHO could resist? I like all of the male leads/love interests in her books, but like Wolfe in The Lunar Chronicles, some just….stand out more than others.
Moving on, haha, I also really liked their ‘adventure’ if it can be called that, as they ran across the Fae lands in hopes of getting away from the Unseelie Queen and her henchmen…Easier said that done for…well quite a few reasons actually. In The Rose Gate, the darkness kept them pretty much trapped, and in The Lily Gate we got to see a different kingdom of sorts, but still not much talk of or actual travel. Which is another thing I appreciated in this one, more so with an artifact they find making me hope it’s something important later on. I liked the other stories, but also loved getting to see a bit more of the lands, especially more closer to the end.
Favorite scene? I can’t/won’t say much, but that campfire scene was my favorite both times I read this story. I don’t know why, it just has something special….Favorite line though might just be when Audrey wakes up confused and asking is she imagined something fuzzy keeping her warm. (You’ll have to read it to understand her confusion! ^.^)
