The Setting - is Washington D.C. post Convergence. Something happened many years ago that merged the Fairy world and our own. Forced to integrate, the various races now walk a political tightrope of intrigue and terrorism. The landscape of DC is different than it is today, but that would be expected with a world that has so many differences than our own; mostly the location of buildings and important locations to the Fae which of course do not exist in the here and now (that we know of). *slight spoiler; not that you didn't see it coming* The Characters - were a little disappointing this time around. I feared in Skin Deep that Laura just wasn't enough, but the character was rescued from flatness by a really interesting character arc. I came into Face Off hoping for the same thing. I was disappointed. I think there are some distinct barriers for a man writing a female lead, especially when one of the crucial character development moments includes sex. It was closed door sex, but I failed to see the changes her decisions made in her or her relationship with Jono. I found through Face Off that Jono became far more entertaining with his quick wit and charisma. The stories of Cress and the Inverni fairies seemed at times more interesting than Laura, who sort of hit a plateau in this book. The Plot - started out amazing - and then I felt like the end became a little like a clusterf*ck. The thing I really like about the Laura Blackstone books are the complex plots and the secret spy stuff. There are multiple story lines being juggled and the plot is fascinating, though I question one particular character having big moments in both books when that character is a secondary one. My biggest issue with the end of the book was the way the resolution played out; there were so many things going on, and so many ways in which it could have unfolded, that I thought summing it up in one sit down was anticlimactic. I would have preferred to have been led along with a few more bread crumbs, given a few more clues and piece at least part of the puzzle together myself. I still enjoyed the book. If there are more Laura Blackstone books, I'll read them, and hope that they get better, because who doesn't love a super hot, awesome spy with a sexy, witty boyfriend?
