I picked up this book after reading this review by KJ Charles (one of my fave authors). I don't read everything that KJ recs, because some of it isn't my cup of tea, but many of the books she recommends I eventually pick up and try out. I've not been disappointed yet!
So I found this book, the first in the The Arcadia Project series, fascinating for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the main character who narrates the story, Millie, is one of the most intriguing main characters I've read in a long while. I can't say it better than KJ does in her review (so if you didn't read it, go and click the link and READ IT!). What I can say, is that I grew to really LIKE her by the end of the book and can't wait to see what she gets up to in the next book.
Secondly, I liked the way the two worlds/realities were treated. Sure, we didn't see anything of the fairy realm itself, just some of the creatures and beings that inhabit it and cross over into our world. I have to hope that we see more of it and learn more of it in the next book.
So, even though I'm not a huge fan of urban fantasy/paranormal, I really did enjoy this one and will be adding the second novel to my list.
