There are kelpies, brownies, and whimsical common cottage-dwelling Folk but there are also dangerously elegant high faerie lords, who love stealing the local villagers from their warm cottages. She also bullies Wendell into helping her retrieve two local women when they are taken into a fae revel, the likes of which they would never be able to escape from without assistance. Her only redeeming quality is her love for her dog and I can respect her tenacity as an academic but other than that she is just an awful human being. We also get to travel to some fae realms to solve a mystery that did get a little dark - so please use caution.

Emily Wilde-I don't even know where to start with my breakdown of this character bc I have so many issues with her. Because readers often ask me about my favourite books and authors, I'm aiming to use this page as a place to collect all of my recommendations.

I mentioned that she can be prickly but at the same time she doesn’t mean to give offence, it’s simply that she speaks her mind and sometimes others take umbridge and so reading her thoughts, as she jots the days events down, was so refreshing because quite often she’s baffled and trying to work out where she went wrong. Brilliant, prickly Emily Wilde and her infuriatingly charming fellow scholar have a special place in my heart now. He apparently fabricates a lot of his work and prefers to lounge around than do actual field work, but he makes up for it by being charming and unreasonably beautiful.

She likes adventure, discovering anything she can about the faeries, and tends to put herself in dangerous situations.

From its characters to the writing style, this book is as much of a curiosity as the mythical creatures it lovingly explores. Wendell is just the most flamboyant eccentric academic idiot to grace a page and I absolutely loved him from the start. Hrafnsvik has the feel of a mysterious place from the moment we arrive there, and the people also have their own unique culture about them, seen especially in the way they react when Emily rejects their offers of help.

This has led her to visiting the small village of Hrafnsvik and, subsequently, Wendell ends up following her in a similar vein as to a lost puppy. It’s written in the style of field notes, if such notes were written by someone who has a compulsion to log absolutely everything in a first person journalistic way. However Emily does care about people in her own way and she makes a lot of steps to help some of the locals that have been negatively impacted by interactions with the fae.When mysterious faeries from other realms appear at her university, curmudgeonly professor Emily Wilde must uncover their secrets before it’s too late, in this heartwarming, enchanting second installment of the Emily Wilde series.
