Of Blood and Honey - Stina Leicht

I read the excerpt and thought this is just another novel - although a Northern Ireland seventies setting appealed as a refreshing change of pace, so I didn't get back to it for a while.

Luckily, it improves enough to go over the 3.5 range enough to round up to 4, with the story of a neophyte (and naive) and newlywed freedom fighter who happens to be one of the Fey. Throwing in strange Fallen Angels and a conflict with priests into The Troubles complicates things even further, along with some rather big family secrets.. As does his wheelman work for his particular army.

Good stuff.

4 out of 5
