    Great Faery fun!

    Conner Grey. What can I say? I like him. He's a crippled Druid who's retired from the "Guild" and working as a consultant for the Boston PD. He's very limited in his abilities and it seems he has just enough to constantly get himself in over his head.
    Dead fairy prostitutes are popping up all over the "Wierd", hearts missing and no clue as to how they got that way. Connor sticks his foot in it...almost literally and it's a downward spiral of plot twists and action for him that ends with one kick-butt fight at the climax.
    This one read like a crime-solver mystery to me. There was a LOT of information being thrown at you from the get go. It's a very complex world that requires much attention. I loved it! My brain hasn't had that good a workout since.... well, it's been a while. I'm going to need to read some mindless fluff next to give my mind time to recover.

    I really appreciated Del Franco's take on the Fey. Down to the little details of how they phrase their names in this society, like "Gamelyn Dannan Sidhe" denoting what race they are. It was an interesting twist on what I've read in the past. And I LOVED the Flits. I keep picturing these little Cornish speaking pixie-like beings armed with sarcasm and a sword.
    Connor was a great hero. He was humbled by his lack of abilities, but was using the "disability" to take inventory of himeself as a person...of who he was in the past, and who he is now. And his growth as a character was enjoyable to read. I can't wait to see how he prgresses with his new directions in the next book.

    As for the negative. The only real complaint I could have was that it had the "first-book-blah's" in at a few points. I see that in a lot of firsts in a series. There's a lot of back story and information to impart in a limited amount of words. You have to build a new world for the reader and catch them up on everything and still try to keep the plot flowing. Not an easy task. So There were a few dry spots. Ah well, it was made up for by the end! What an amazing ending! Holy kickin-butt-not-expecting-to-leave-this-room-alive action! It's amazing what someone can drag themselves through when the end of the world as you know it is looming in the distance! I can't wait to see where this goes in Unquiet Dreams!
