Here is the summary of the book:
From the moment Alina touches London's hottest fae superstar, breaking one of the laws founded to protect all of her kind, her fate – and the fae – close in.
Below ground, the fae High Queen plots to claim the city as her own and places her pawns, ready for the battle to come. A battle she cannot lose, but for one small problem – Alina. There are four ancient keepers powerful enough to keep the queen in her prison. Three are dead. One remains … And to fight back, Alina risks sacrificing everything she has come to love.
This New Adult urban fantasy is packed with action and suspense and will have you yearning for more forbidden fae romance.
Fae we love. The Fae we adore and the Fae we fantasize about. And Pippa DaCosta's City of Fae falls into the category of great fae stories, we eagerly take in. A bit more New Adult than Young Adult, City of Fae caters to the older teens and adults and sure sets things on fire and really you won't even care ...... The Fae folk form an integral part of the fantasy genre and is my absolute favorite so i'm thankful I got to read an advance reader edition.
A well balanced plot that has some pretty amazing characters with their own unique attributes. Alina was too curious, too clever and much too resourceful. She is one of those persistent reporters that truly go after their story ...... and Reign is the sexy-smoldering hot Fae, who is just too hot for his own good and very dangerous as well of course. Attracted to each other like moths to a flame. Reign tries to keep Alina from his world but the more they meet, the more they are thrown to the wolf's path.
DaCosta's Fae sees them coming out in the 70s. The humans know they are dangerous but are a coveted lot and the mortals just can't help admiring and desiring them. Conspiracies abound, the Fae know how to play the game as the worst of the lot plans to gather the power to wreak havoc and destruction ......
City of Fae on the whole was of the zing of fantasy and the zang of hotness. DaCosta laid in a frame work here with its twists and turns and loops and binds. It was magic and it was dangerous. So very dangerous ..... and I loved every bit of it. If the author does continue this series, I will definitely look forward to reading them.
"Magically alluring and a dangerously adventurous page-turner"
