I've never read fantasy before. So I was surprised when I was able to jump right in without a problem. Kirk draws you in by creating a fantasy world that is also believable! Dragons and Fae co-exist peacefully. At least until an evil presence threatens to undo all that has been done. They are a segregated society and prefer it that way. (Shades of a society we all can recognize.) Tyler, the Queen's guard, is drawn to Issie and she to him. Can two such entities find love in such a world? Well they do! In between fighting prejudice and their feelings for each other, love blossoms in a very unique way, forever changing their world. Kirk has written a story that will appeal to fantasy AND romance readers. The prose is fast-paced, the world building deft and sharp. Since this is my first fantasy book ever, I believe I have found a new genre to dip into.

This is definitely a book that is more a high fantasy romance than anything else. I am a reader who can really enjoy a well written high fantasy, but often times for me they feel more stiff than anything else and aren't character driven enough for me. This book is the perfect blend of high fantasy themes, character driven plot, and exciting romance. The book has a lot of bittersweet moments, and a lot of separation both in terms of people and the classes. I like the way that this book doesn't just revolve around a couple trying to find their way to each other, or a two people solving a problem and ending up together. Granting there is a couple involved, but the issues at play within the novel have to do with fae society as a whole. Sure there is a bad guy, the society itself is suffering from its own problems, and the bad guy just takes advantage of the situation. Issie's particular situation is both happy and sad. She feels like she belongs where she is, she has made a good life for herself, and she seems happy on the surface. But when you dig a little deeper you see that she has a had a rough past, and was cast out by the Uppers, separated from her family and deemed to be less than she is. Even though she is happy when she ended up and the life she has now, she carries what happened with her, and sees the impact the rules their society has plays on all families. Then you have Tyler who came from the Lowers, but is now an Upper, and how accepting his is about society status quo, he doesn't really see anything wrong with it. In the beginning it's really easy to want to smack him upside the head, because he never really looks deeper and makes a lot of assumptions about people. Thankfully he starts to open his eyes as the book goes on and realizes how things really are and that maybe a change is needed. I was unsure of how I would feel about the dragons in the book. I like the concept of dragons, but a lot of times I don't feel like the are utilized well, they tend to overwhelm books, like the author forgets that books are primarily character driven. Thankfully Kirk has some really well established characters, and the dragon more enhance the story than try to drive it. I like the way the dragons themselves become characters in a really nice way. Overall, I was really happy with the book, and with the ending. I am really curious to see what direction the second book takes, given the ending of the first. I like anyone who enjoys fantasy with romance will really enjoy this book. I love the fae, the society, the dragons, the whole package was just really nicely done. I would seriously recommend it to anyone looking for a good book.

I loved this story. The characters were quirky and vivid. The world was well established and the plot was in interesting balance of action/adventure/myster/romance. I loved the concept of the division of fae classes between magical/non-magical. It establishes lots of great conbflict and tension. The chemistry between the hero and heroine is wonderful fun. I loved seeing the snobby Tyler go slumming with the freespirited idealistic Issie. If you love Fantasy Romance with rich world building and an action packed story this one is for you.
