Finn’s been asleep for centuries. He’ll need to catch up fast to survive.
Diego’s impulse to rescue a naked bridge jumper starts as just that—talk the man down and get him to social services. But there’s something odd about this homeless person, more than just his delusions of being a pooka, and something so vulnerable that Diego’s determined to help him stabilize rather than see him institutionalized or deported.
Finn went into the Dreaming centuries ago to escape a heartbreak he couldn’t bear. Now that he’s back, he finds the Veil to the Otherworld closed. The fae courts have abandoned him in a poisoned human world where a displaced pooka has little chance of survival. His human rescuer is kind and compassionate—and shockingly familiar. One thing at a time, though. He needs Diego to believe he’s not human first.
I love Angel Martinez, and I've read mostly everything she's written, but this book, while pleasant, wasn't my favorite from her.
Finn was a fun read (I'm always down for a hottie fae) with a nicely plotted, fast pace. I've never read a book with a pooka MC before, but I was totally down with the magic and charm of the story.
Three-star reviews are some of the hardest for me to write because while I enjoyed the story, I don't feel super-strongly about it, either way. There were dark parts and some funny parts, but overall, the sappiness and cheesy pet names brought me back from really enjoyed the story. I found the jump to love to be way too fast for my personal tastes as well. It read like a novella, though it clocked in over 200 pages long.
I think if you like Angel Martinez, the story is certainly worth your while. It was a nice break from some heavier reads for me, though I don't think it will stand out a few weeks from now.
