Poor Finn, at 15 he was exiled for 25 years. 25 years of being nothing and getting sucked dry of memories by the Fey. 25 years for a murder he did not commit.
But now he is back. Something went wrong and he has no idea how the world has changed. He still wonders who framed him and now someone is after him.
This was a urban fantasy that felt..dunno, just different. In a good way. Finn comes home to his strange necromancy family. His sister without powers, his brother who thinks he is a were (though there are weres). His other brother who has taken over and does not seem happy to see Finn back. Yuo, that family had issues.
Poor Finn, the world certainly did change in 25 years and he is so clueless. But I liked him, sure he is clueless but he does well adjusting. He really does not have a choice since things go boom at once he is back.
I liked his family too, strange as they were. The whole mystery of who framed him was well done, I sure did not figure it out, but then I never do.
The world was interesting. Normal people do not know that there is magic (we never do ;). And I'd like to explore the world more.
