To Catch a Thief…
For centuries, Gideon Montrose has served the King of Fairies without question and, often, without mercy. So when the King orders him to apprehend a notorious thief, Gideon obeys. But when he finally gets his hands on the beautiful culprit, Gideon’s in for a shock.
Arabella Locksley is none other than the spirited, unpredictable woman he knew back in Make Believe as Robin Hood — the love of his life whose tragic death destroyed his chance at Happily Ever After.
Now, he has an impossible choice. Betray the woman he once loved, or the king he’s bound to serve?
Like the earlier books, SeRine’s Ever After takes place in the Here and Now, but unlike the previous books, we get a glimpse of what life was like before. We start with a peek at Gideon’s life before he began working for the Fairy King, and throughout the story we get enough of his back-story to understand why he stayed for so long. We also learn about his tragic romance, and of course that makes us fall in love with him and want to heal his broken heart.
While I found the romance predictable (I have read a LOT of PNR though, so it takes quite a bit to surprise me) the action and mystery involved in the story kept me entertained, and turning the pages as fast as my eyes could read. And of course, cameos with our favorite Tales, including Red and Nate (still my favorite, for obvious reasons!) kept me grinning with what could only be described as a feeling of being in on an inside joke.
I’ve always felt a closeness with these stories, and as fun as they can be, they also have a darkness to them. Ever After is no exception. It was exactly what I expected and was left at the end with a feeling of contentment and hopefulness for future books in the Transplanted Tales saga. (More Nate & Red please!)
