Overview

New York Times bestselling author Lilith Saintcrow returns to dark fantasy with a new series where the faery world inhabits diners, dive bars and trailer parks.

Jeremiah Gallow is just another construction worker, and that's the way he likes it. He's left his past behind, but some things cannot be erased. Like the tattoos on his arms that transform into a weapon, or that he was once closer to the Queen of Summer than any half-human should be.

Now the half-sidhe all in Summer once feared is dragged back into the world of enchantment, danger, and fickle fae - by a woman who looks uncannily like his dead wife. Her name is Robin, and her secrets are more than enough to get them both killed. A plague has come, the fullborn-fae are dying, and the dark answer to Summer's Court is breaking loose.

Be afraid, for Unwinter is riding...

I've read all of the author's books. This one is a little more fantasy -oriented than her other books, which have a little more of a dark urban fantasy feeling. Reminded me a bit of Holly Black.

True to form, nothing given easy to the reader, but worth the time and thought to dip into the world she creates.

The story falls squarely into urban fantasy. The big problem with this one is the language. The author users terms like chantment as if dropping the "en" somehow makes this more mystical, otherworldly sounding. There is also a lot of archaic words that aren't necessary. Taken all together, this reads as an attempt to trick you into thinking what a magical story this is. There is good story here if you can get past the teenage-level angst (think mortal instruments) and the language that just ultimately feels clumsy. Clearly my lack of plot points means I couldn't get past the writing.

Spectacularly bad INDEED! This REEKS! I would take this to a con to read in the dark and stormy night panel. Pom. Pous. Suckage.

It's hard to do seelie vs unseelie urban fantasy without seeming cliched, but Saintcrow makes old tropes feel new again in a lush and original take on modern-day faeries. Her version of Robin Goodfellow in particular is deliciously eerie and inhuman.

Good, imaginative novel about the fae and a plague that attacks the full-bloods. Halflings are immune, and the queen of Summer sends one - Robin Ragged - out into the "real" world to locate a cure. She finds the scientist that Puck Goodfellow and Summer tasked with curing the blackball plague. Running from Unwinter, Ragged runs into Gallow - another halfling and Summer's former soldier who had fled to marry a mortal. Trying to sort out the lies from the truth entwines Gallow and Ragged into a race against time - both the plague and Unwinter hunts them both. Good story, some of the language was a bit tough. It felt a bit archaic at time, but given that the fae are involved, it's perfectly understandable. Looking forward to the second book in the series.

The first thing I noticed about this book was the prose, there is a whole lot of it. But the next thing I noticed was the intriguing characters. Gallow is a brooding, mysterious, and handsome muscular hero who just happens to be fae. Ragged is an attractive fae with a need to save a young child, Sean, from the Fae Court, and who is an unwilling participant in the secrets and dark workings between the fae world and ours. One of the most fascinating characters was Puck, an independent fae whose mischievous ways bring both bad and sometimes a little help to the other fae, as we as an occasional human. A battle is coming between the fae, and disease is spreading through their ranks on both sides. Gallow and Ragged, for their own individual reasons, stand up to the fae, and challenge them. As all the secrets and plots started coming together I could not put this book down, and I can't wait for the next one in January. I'm just hoping there is a little less prose.

Much more dark fantasy than some of her other books. The one thing like about this author 's work is characters make choices sometimes not always what one would think is best but those choices involve growth of the character . characters start off slow but as book progresses found out their back story ..to me prefer this since seems more real. world build is different enough to be unique .

When I saw the title I was instantly intrigued, however the book was a bit of a disappointment because of the use of language. I think the author was trying too hard to sound like an Elizabethan Fae. There were a lot of obscure and esoteric words and phrases that did not enhance the story but made the text more unnecessarily complicated than it should have been. Frankly, the language could be simpler and that would make the story more enjoyable I thought story line and characters were good; the main protagonist Jeremiah Gallow is a reluctant hero who gets thrusts into the middle of Fae conflict because of the mysterious woman who happens to have a striking resemblance to his deceased wife. They set off to retrieve a cure for a Fae illness and experience treachery, battle a few undesirables to save day.

Jeremy Gallow, a half human/half fae is in the mortal world working as a construction worker. He turned away from the fae when he married a human woman and decided to live a normal mortal life with her. Unfortunately, after awhile together, she died in a car accident and he's left to continue living his life like he had been, though filled with sorrow. So when a fae girl walks into the bar that he's having drinks with his coworkers at and she looks uncannily like his dead wife, he gets up and follows her. This starts the journey of Gallow and Robin. You see, Robin is the fae queen of Summer's errand girl. In their world, the fae are getting a plague like illness that affects the fae that are more pure blooded. It's not effecting the half bloods or less quite as badly. Robin is sent to get a cure from one of Summer's human playthings in the mortal world. On the way, Unwinter's minions cause issues and that's when Gallow steps in to help his dead wife's lookalike. This continues on until the end of the book. There are discoveries along the way, but I'll leave that quiet in case you want to read this book. I will however mention a few things if you are planning on reading the book. I had several issues as I was reading and feel like I should just put this out there. It quickly changes both of the main character's names depending on who is speaking. Gallow is known as Jeremy, Jeremiah, as well as Gallow. Robin is called Robin, or Ragged. Initially both of these character name changing so often confused me, until I figured out some random guy didn't just show up, it was still Gallow. Secondly, it's extremely slow at the beginning. I'm not sure if that was just an issue for myself, or it others will have this issue as well. I had trouble until about the 25% mark, then it got a bit interesting and at the 75% mark I was fully invested in the story. My last complaint is that Gallow's dead wife is mentioned a bit too much as well. I understand that having a girl that looks just like her will bring up the subject, but I felt it was mentioned almost every few pages. All that being said, there were positive things about the book as well. The fae had me intrigued, and I hope for the characters to spend a bit more time there vs on the human side in the next book. I liked Robin's character, and her powers intrigued me. And I seem to have a weakness for the nonstop running until we work everything out type books. So all that being said, I did enjoy Trailer Park Fae, but had a difficult time getting into it. I would however read book two just to see what happens next. I'd suggest this if you like dark fae books.

First book I have not liked by Ms. Saintcrow. The whole book reads like a set up to a story.
