In a desperate attempt to earn income, fairy world therapist Olive Kennedy resorts to finding clients at the Texas Renaissance Festival. When she discovers the corpse of her client's husband discarded in her booth, she realizes that earning her next paycheck is the least of her worries. Even worse, Olive learns the murderer may be a magical monster from the fairy realm. The fae and their escorts arrive from Faythander to aid in the investigation, but they do not travel alone. Olive must confront the one person she never wished to see again. Kull—her ex.
After months with no contact from Faythander, Olive hoped the magical drama was over. Yet it seems she'll never escape the beings who haunt her nightmares, or be free from the man who took away her happily ever after.

If you love fantasy, don't miss this enchanting read!
While that sums up a lot of the plot for the more action-oriented segment of the story arc, there is still the romantic side, as Olive tries to work through her feelings and where her relationship with Kull actually stands. I think it it really this element of the story that I was drawn to, as I felt a lot of frustration. There were times I wanted Kull to wake up and see what he had, and Olive to see what she could have again if she really wanted it. I could see glimpses of what they had previously, and there were times when I found myself thinking “Wake up you two. You're great for each other.” There were definitely a lot of ups and downs in this part of the story. That's the mark of a good writer and compelling characters when I'm very much invested emotionally with both characters.
Also, I'm pretty excited, as there's hints of the continuing story, and further development of one of the sub-plots which has yet to be fully explored. If the hints in Bloodthorn are any hint, I definitely want to read book four to see where this series is headed.
My rating is 5/5 platypires.
