I like the mix of fantasy and contemporary/coming of age novel; Spencer is actually plunged in a fantasy world he was not aware of, but sometime I had the feeling he was more interesting in getting lay as much as possible than actually trying to puzzle out the chaos he was in the middle of. Spencer is 18 years old and he is not a “little adult”; on the contrary, he often takes his decision based on his instincts/impulses more than on his reasoning, and that is very much like a common teenager, even if there is nothing common on the situation Spencer is living.
For various reason, for the fantasy plot, for Spencer’s allergy at the word “love”, someone could think this is not much of a romance, and instead I found it to be sweet and very romantic. It’s mostly due to Rourke, he is a very fascinating man, a man that allures both women than men, and so maybe I fell on his charm net like everyone else, but in a way or the other, I was cheering for him to catch Spencer and to take him forever. I was more interested on the love story than the fantasy plot, but that doesn’t mean that the fantasy plot was not good, and quite complex, a very good alternative world, even if the author managed to not make it too “heavy” on details distracting the reader from the plot.
