It seems that there are a lot of paranormal romances out there right now - very popular genre and it's getting a lot of attention. But among a lot of them, there is a boring generic quality - if you change the location and the paranormal entity, some are pretty much the same as many others.
Gail Wolfe has gone outside the common mythologies that many of us know at least reasonably well, created her own myth and then carefully inserted that creation into Celtic mythology, giving us something new. Her characters have depth and vitality, her descriptive abilities gave me a lovely sense-of-place, and the romantic elements are adroitly handled.
At the end of the day, the most important question is: did I enjoy reading this book? Yes, yes I did.
While physically, the print edition has some issues - totally the fault of the publishing company - the story was well-worth reading for me.
