This seems to be what happens when a fairy tale prince goes terribly wrong.
I picked this up from the library without realising it was related to Charming, which I have had on my TBR list for quite some time. I may possibly have immediately raced through all of the rest of the short stories and then put a hold in for the novel as well.
I'm really tempted to describe this story as "charming," so I feel like I should get bonus points for not technically doing so, as it kind of is. There's plenty of action, an interesting take on the ubiquitous fae, and a main character that manages to walk that always-awkward line between "confident with a Tragic Past" and "cocky as hell and annoying to boot". Figuring out which side he falls on is probably going to take the entirety of the series, but I'm certainly willing to enjoy his snark and the rather ridiculous shenanigans he gets himself into until a clear answer surfaces.
