Publisher's Summary

Saiya Buchanan is a wraith, able to detach her shadow from her body and send it off to do her bidding. But, unlike most of her kin, Saiya doesn't deal in death. Instead, she trades secrets - and in the goblin besieged city of Stirling in Scotland, they're a highly prized commodity. It might just be, however, that the goblins have been hiding the greatest secret of them all.

When Gabriel de Florinville, a Dark Elf, is sent as royal envoy into Stirling and takes her prisoner, Saiya is not only going to uncover the sinister truth. She's also going to realize that sometimes the deepest secrets are the ones locked within your own heart.

I love the avoidance of tropes

A fun Scottish story. the characters aren't who you expect them to be in a good way. there is the core of a neat mythology here.

Loved the novel and the narrator

I couldn't stop listening to this novel. I had to finish it as fast as possible. The narrator was superb, and the storyline kept me engaged from start to finish. The characters were well developed and likeable. More, please!

Great book and superb narration!

This is a great stand alone book. The story was well written and the characters were extremely relatable. I really enjoyed it and finished it in a day! The narrator did SUCH a great job with each character. I was never confused at who was speaking since everyone had their own distinct voices. I would like be for her to narrate more book in the UF genre!

A fun experience!

I truly enjoyed this Audible, the Novel itself was highly entertaining, well written and the story line was truly unique. The narrator, Ruth Urquhart did an amazing job!

Not for me

The premise of this story is interesting but it's not what I expected. I couldn't finish it.

Wow, This book was terrible.

I have read a lot of books centred around Elves, Fae, Goblins and the like so I kinda feel I have a broad variety of some of the best to the worst and I have to admit this comes close to some of the worst. Personally it was incredibly boring. Vert predictable, cliche, the characters lacked any personality and the narration was incredibly dull.
If you are looking for a read to just pass time with a pretty storyline and happy ending then this is for you. If you like a bit more magic and mystery you will probably not enjoy this book.
