Urban fantasy and magic are things that are usually just outside my interests, so I was a bit dubious about this when I picked it up. But I loved the cast of characters and the way the pieces of the story fit together. The world building was great!

This was a book that I could not put down, breezing easily through the first three hundred pages. I love how different this book is, never a dull moment, and the story is just fascinating to me. So happy that there is a sequel! :)

Really good and fairly suspenseful. A good urban fantasy that creates a fantasy world just outside the realization of the real world. I'm looking forward to the next book.

I really enjoyed this book. IT kept me so interested I barely put it down. Excited for more good reads from Mishell Baker.

Los Angeles-based filmmaker Millie, paraplegic and institutionalized following a suicide attempt, receives an unusual job offer from Caryl, a representative of the Arcadia Project, a nonprofit organization that arranges gainful employment for individuals with mental health issues. What this actually means, Millie learns when she accepts the job, is that she's to serve as a liaison between Hollywood and Fairyland. Her first assignment? Track down a missing actor who also happens to be a Seelie Court noble. With its tough-yet-vulnerable heroine, gritty supernatural-inflected setting, and intricate fae politics, this debut may appeal to fans of Seanan McGuire's October Daye series.

One of the better urban fantasies I've read lately. Protagonist unusual and characterizations excellent. Decent plot twists. Definitely not a cookie cutter fantasy. I would be thrilled to read any sequels that get published.
