Worth a read for the amusing romance between the main character and her faerie bodyguard, but I had trouble buying the tie between the world of the fairies, their wars, their rules and the band's music. Not my sort of story, I guess.

Excellent. Keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Strong female character.

"It's the way I'm made, I suppose. For centuries, my kind have delighted in luring travelers off the path and into the marsh for the sheer pleasure of seeing them wet their feet."

"That's nice". Eddi felt a queasy forboding. "What do you want me to do? Referee?"

The phouka flung his head back and barked laughter. "Ah, sweetling, you are fresh as the wind, if not as quick. The Unseelie court are as immortal as we are. We could strike off all their warty heads tonight, and have it all to do again tomorrow. How would you slay an immortal?"...

"Were you upon the battlefield, you would bring to it the taint of mortality. All wounds would be true ones, and some would be fatal."
