THERE IS A SECRET WAR GROWING BENEATH THE STREETS OF LONDON. A dark magic will be unleashed by the Untainted...Unless a new hero can be found. The smarter, faster brother to Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere has arrived. The immense Sixty-One Nails follows Niall Petersen, victim of a suspected heart attack on the London Underground, into the hidden world of the Feyre, an uncanny place of legend that lurks just beyond the surface of everyday life. The Untainted, the darkest of the Seven Courts, have made their play for power, and unless Niall can recreate the ritual of the Sixty-One Nails, their dark dominion will enslave all of the Feyre, and all of humankind too.

A book in need of a good editor. Far too long and mostly comprised of endless dialogue explaining what's going on instead of actually showing the reader what's going on. It's a decent fantasy story once you actually get to it but there's far too much ponderous exposition to slog through before that happens. And the major focal point of the plot - the Quit Rents Ceremony - is a major letdown when it finally occurs. Needless to say I doubt I'll be picking up any more books in the series. ( )

Interesting world with some really enthralling ritual aspects, and some good character aspects. One of those first books where I'm really interested in seeing his more experienced, polished work, because many of the weaknesses of this can be smoothed out with practice.

Those weaknesses? The story was told through a first-person camera permanently stuck to our hero's head. Following his every step for the three days over which the story unwound grew occasionally tedious - the travelling between story points often doesn't need to be told. There was also constant minor repetition - conversations would cover the same material multiple times in slightly different ways when they could have been significantly streamlined (leading to less length but also less of me shouting, "Yes, I know!" at the book).

In more substantial matters, I seriously side-eye any book that takes place over three days and involves the main characters falling into a significant relationship and possibly getting pregnant. THREE DAYS. Dude.

But it's interesting, it's very readable, it's nicely developed and, like I said, the central weaving together of magic into arcane legal ritual is the sort of idea that makes me clap hands with glee. Definitely going to try the second one. ( )

An interesting mix of urban fantasy, the fae, and old British legends and traditions of the monarchy. Fantastic supporting characters from Claire Raddison to the Highsmiths. ( )

There are four books in the Courts of Feyre series; this is the first book in that series. This book started out really cool and reminded me a lot of Gaiman’s “Neverwhere”, unfortunately it never really went anywhere. I was reading this on Kindle and got about 40% of the way through (215 pages) and realized that not much had really happened yet. I finally stopped reading this book at that 40% mark.

Niall basically dies, is brought back to life, and then finds out he is some sort of fae in the first couple chapters of the book. There is discussion that he will need to join one of the Feyre courts in order to survive the awakening of his Feyre powers. From this point on there is a lot of Niall running around as he tries to tie up the loose ends of his old life, this part seemed to go on forever.

Blackbird is an interesting side character that is introduced and I liked her. There are a few other side characters introduced but not much time is spent with them.

I was really disappointed in how slowly this book moved; I really wanted to like it and it feels like the kind of story I would like. However, I finally got fed up with the lack of progress and decided to put this book down and start reading another.

Overall this book has potential if you have the patience for it (which I didn’t). It has a very “Neverwhere” feel to it and if felt like something I would enjoy initially. However, in the first 40% of the book not much actually happens and I got bored with it. ( )
