The book really picked up for me when Wendell arrived to help Emily, and their banter lifted the dreary landscape and kind of kick-started the plot and sped things up. Some spelling mistakes here and there, and it ends with the promise of a second book, so the standalone I thought it was going in didn't land - some plot threads I thought would finish the story are left open for the next, so now I have to read the next one,  which I don't want to because I think this could have easily been a standalone. It was written that way at the start, all the plot threads could have been wrapped up by the end,  so I don't understand dragging it out. 
Can tell the author packed a lot of research into lore and history from around the world, you really had the setting and mythos down, which made it so easy to dive in and read the book in a few days.
Spoiler Emily Wilde is badass by the end, and I kind of laughed comparing her to Feyre from ACOMAF. Feyre almost married and did marry 2 Fae Lords by the end of the book - Emily gets engaged to 2 Fairie KINGS in two CHAPTERS. Queen shit. Literally.
