I really enjoyed the characters of Cat and Fenodree in Rebecca's story (the first two Fae Games novels), and I missed them the third story for Ashley. When I realized they weren't just coming back but playing the leads in Born of Nothing I was super excited.
Fenodree cracked me up. His awe and manner of acceptance of the modern human world after spending centuries alone in the Shadow Realm were a mix of childlike wonder and total confusion. It was portrayed so well by Jill Ramsower, and the way his past was woven into his present was amazing.
Cat has a fight on her hands. As the druids learn to accept that not all Fae are as bad as they had been taught for generations, her family is one that refuses to change. But she won't let that stand in her way of having a friendship with Rebecca and Ashley.
But the story turns very dark and gets quite real when Cat's mother arranges for a "re-education" in the old ways of hating the Fae. Her re-education was horrific, and the psychological games really mess with her head. But Fenodree knows something isn't right. But without knowing how to navigate the modern world, will he be able to find her?
This seems like it may be the end of the Fae Games, but I really hope it isn't. I'm loving the world Ramsower has built, and I'd really like to come visit again.
