Although a YA book, the story is remarkably sophisticated, drawing on the tales of faerie and blending it together with various musical aspects and a thoroughly modern setting. I found the role of the main character as a harpist and a “cloverhand” (someone who can see faeries) to be very well done. The darker elements compare favorably with the works of authors like Holly Black.
