This book is one of those books that has stuck with me, even after 3 year have passed since I read it. The portrayal of the witch is a bit messed up but, I don't believe it was an intentional stab at the Wiccan way. Just one side to the coin of that culture. The love between the protagonist and the fae was very touching to me. All in all, I believe that this book is worth the read if you feel like being lost in a realm that is mystical but, still includes the mundane realm in which we dwell :)

Ps, I've never read any of this Author's other work so, that may be why I was so fond of this book.

I was disappointed in this book. Having read I Am Legend, I expected something of similar quality. Instead, I felt like I was reading something by a totally different author. The characters were one-dimensional. I found it difficult to identify with the protagonist; he frequently referenced his father and his dislike of him, but very little background information was given and little attempt was made to resolve the problem. It seemed to be a big part of his life, but we never learn much about it. The book in general read like a teenage boy's fantasy; two women fighting over him while he has lots of sex with both of them. I'm also not impressed with the negative portrayal of Wicca - it seemed intentional. I found it difficult to read through to the end.
