After dealing with so many of his antics throughout this series, we finally have Adam Black's story. He's arrogant, sensual and a troublemaker and finally got himself on the wrong side of Aoibheal, Queen of the Fae, who strip his of his immortality and makes him invisible. Adam's only hope for survival is Gabrielle O'Callaghan, a hard-working law student who is cursed with the ability to see both worlds. She's leery of him (smart girl)and resists his charms...for awhile. It was good to see Adam get a bit of a smackdown but we also get to see another more substantive side of him. Gabby holds her own with him and they both find themselves evading danger as he tries to regain him immortality in the face of deadly politics involving the Faery Queen's court. Imagine my surprise in finding myself rooting for Adam after all the shenanigans he's pulled in the past. There apparently was a method to his madness and it was an interesting journey to discover the many layers of this man. And, of course, his romance with Gabby lived up to expectations of a match involving Adam. It was also a bit of a treat to revisit with the MacKeltar clan who have an important role in the story.This is one of my favorites to date in this series, which is a big surprise as I was reluctant to start the story.
