"A library with a deadly enchantment. A Fae lord who wants in. A human woman willing to risk it all for a taste of power. In a land ruled by ruthless Fae, twenty-one-year-old Lore Alemeyu's village is trapped in a forested prison. Lore knows that any escape attempt is futile-her scars are a testament to her past failures. But when her village is threatened, Lore makes a desperate deal with a Fae lord. She will leave her home to catalog/organize an enchanted library that hasn't been touched in a thousand years. No Fae may enter the library, but there is a chance a human might be able to breach the cursed doors. She convinces him that she will risk her life for wealth, but really she's after the one thing the Fae covet above all: magic of her own. As Lore navigates the hostile world outside, she's forced to rely on two Fae males to survive. Two very different, very dangerous, very attractive Fae males. When undeniable chemistry ignites, she's not just in danger of losing her life, but her heart to the very creatures she can never trust"--… (mere)

Lore lives in a world where there is one city of humans that are essentially trapped in their town due to the world being run by Fae. When she is dragged from her home and family, she is thrown into a world that makes it clear that she does not belong. Lore finds out she has been brought to the city to catalog a lost library that is off limits to the Fae in the town.

Lore is fascinated by the seemingly endless amount of books at her disposal to catalog and organize. She has to spend every day alone with the books and is barred from exploring the greater town. She is assigned to a soldier of the castle to ensure that she sticks to her duties in the library. Without any way to contact her friends or family, Lore starts to feel the isolation creeping in. When she feels a calling to a particular book she finds, it triggers a series of events changing her world forever.

This was a lovely cozy fantasy world and the twist had me screaming at the end. Very much looking forward to what happens in book two! ( )

First, I LOVE this cover (shoutout to the artist @green446004 and fantasy Black people. Let’s go!

But the pacing and storytelling weren’t for me. The writing felt heavy on the telling and was too fast-paced. But the last third of the book picked up until it jumped the shark a little bit. I thought the book would take place in one location and was surprised when it moved to somewhere unexpected for the brunt of the book.

With the worldbuilding, the fae/different types of fairies are established to be very dangerous. There's a serious class issue and they all have unique magical traits, view humans as beneath them, and are execution-style scary supposedly. But, it didn't make any sense the way and how quickly Lore would mouth off. She wavered between being afraid of them to not caring. Can or cannot these people smite you where you stand???

I wanted to like Asher and Lore more, but their connection felt like we were on a speed-run. The core building of their relationship mostly happens offscreen, so the romantic strides felt unearned. I couldn't get into their banter either. Also, the ending... I don't even know any more. what? whole time he's been living a lie??? did he get lost in the lie? why did he let the relationship go romantic if he was just using her?

i didn't want to mention them making out after finding out the human women are being forcefully impregnated because I thought it was a final hurrah/going out with a bang because they might die. but nah, it makes sense. y'all are acting horny after hearing that??? because you're a doggone villain!


The second male lead, Finndryl was rude and standoffish, but he was the strong, quiet type. These are the main types who have undying loyalty to the fmc when they get their act together lol. He and Lore kept getting on each other's nerves for the smallest things, but I liked him better because we got to see him slowly defrost. Then, freeze again. Slightly thaw. And freeze again.

Unfortunately, the majority of the character interactions felt like I was being "told" things. Let it marinate. Lore's friendship with Grey didn't have much time, but I believed in their relationship way more than the one with Asher and later Isla.

The editing process probably cut a lot of things which made the book pacing feel too fast. I don't like needless filler, but I think it would've made me more invested in the characters. One scene I liked in particular was when Lore gets pushed in a swing. Just a peaceful moment that let the story breathe.

Still, I'd check out book two! I'm ready to see Lore gain mastery over her skills. I also want to see the Finndryl route.

CW: forced breeding: in the big villain monologue, we find out some of the fae are forcefully raping human women to have half-fae to increase their declining population. 7 women are already with child when Lore and friends save them

2.5 stars

Drinking Games:
Lore fretting about her hair
Asher’s "long legs"
Lore drinking too much alcohol
