Publisher's Summary

Journeying by steampowered sled to London's Frost Fair to perform, Tara and three friends are trapped in a blizzard in the woods. A gruff, handsome stranger offers them shelter - and wants one thing in return. Stories.

The travellers are glad to oblige. Their host, Rolph, is especially captivated by Tara's story of an orphaned girl raised by the Fae in the world of the spirits. Equally intrigued by Rolph, and aware of an electric pull between them, Tara encourages him to share a story of his own. When Rolph weaves a tale of a man who is doomed by his own folly to turn into a wolf at the full moon, Tara suspects there is more than a grain of truth in his words.

When the veil between the mortal and spiritual worlds is parted, and danger threatens, will Tara make the ultimate sacrifice to save Rolph?

Strange mix of Genres

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The mix of different genres was most likely the most interesting aspect of this book. There was steampunk/fantasy with some historical/romance and fairytale. The book though fell flat near the end. For me it just failed to deliver.

What does Rebecca Wisocky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I picked up this audiobook because of Rebecca Wisocky. I absolutely adore her narrations and would listen to anything she read. She is so good at crafting suspense and her pacing is marvelous.
