When young Irish artist Natasha Newlyn paints, she hears music; a wild, secret symphony of ancient jigs and reels that accompany her stunning watercolor landscapes. Natasha lives in a small sea village in the far west of Ireland, the perfect place for her work...or at least it was until the dreams came. Starting as nothing more than vague erotic images, the dreams begin to grow. Then they begin to affect her art...and intrude into her real life. When an invitation arrives to attend her friend's wedding in Brisbane, Australia, Natasha seizes the chance to have a vacation and sort out her confused mind. But there is someone else who can also hear her secret music. Someone unearthly and dangerous. Someone who covets her: Finvarra, the Faerie King of Connaught. He has decided that she will be his next bride, and to that end he will follow her to the other side of the world. But the entire Irish Faerie Court is a little out of place in the sub-tropical streets of Brisbane, Australia; and like many things, winning the heart (or at least the soul) of a mortal just isn't as easy as it used to be.… (meer)

I think I'm getting very unforgiving in my old age; I put this aside after fifty pages of Celtic muddle, with an emotional setup for the two protagonists (fairy king and mortal woman) that did not make sense to me and bordered on some potentially abusive territory (he is wooing her by bonking her in her dreams). At the point I gave up, the narrative was about to switch to Australia with potential for hilarious culture-shock japes. Not for me, sorry. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I found Paul Brandon's writing to be engaging and descriptive. It gave the reader the unique feeling that this was a story that could just occur in the middle of anyone's life. The author did a beautiful job of making the characters regular people going about their lives, while the fantastical world of faery happened all around them, always just beneath the surface of every day life. With the exception of a few slower spots, I thoroughly enjoyed it! I highly recommend it for an enjoyable read with a happy (if not a bit too perfect) ending. ( )
