New York Times best-selling author Lilith Saintcrow returns to dark fantasy with the second novel in her Gallow & Ragged series, where the faery world inhabits diners, dive bars, and trailer parks.
Robin Ragged has revenge to wreak and redemption to steal. As for Jeremy Gallow, the poison in his wound is slowly killing him while old friends turn traitor and long-lost enemies return to haunt him.
In the dive bars and trailer parks, the sidhe are hunting. War looms, and on a rooftop in the heart of the city, the most dangerous sidhe of all is given new life. He has only one thought, this new hunter: Where is the Ragged?

Lilith Saintcrow is a hit or miss author for me, I either love it or its just kind of “meh”. This one falls in the second category. I just could not get into this story, I don’t know if it is because I did not read the first one (I skipped as many reviews said it was very slow, and dragged on except for the end) I had hopped that in skipping to the next one I would be able jump right in and get sucked into the story. The story is beautifully written but for me that is all it was….I can’t quite figure out why this one did not catch my interest……I loved her Dante Valentine and Jill Kismet series….maybe it was that I listened to those as graphic audios and that made it more entertaining, I just not sure. I guess I was just expecting more action, something keeping me on the edge of my seat while listening, instead it just chugged along and an 8 hour book took me almost a month to listen to.
I don’t really have much more to say about the story but one statement from the story stood out to me: “Funny, how things became very simple once a man’s course was decided. It was the aimlessness of choice that made mischief, among both sidhe and mortals.”
Joe Knezevich is a new to me narrator and I did enjoy listening to him, he did a great job on the voices and I would be interested in hearing other books he narrates.
As I said, this author is hit or miss with me, but even though the book was not for me, it was well written and well told. If you like stories about the fae I would say give this one a try, you might enjoy it more than I did.
