Michael has just moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, to make a fresh start with his three children. While they're out exploring the city, he's relaxing with a glass of wine.

That is until a knock on the front door leads to a bizarre revelation from a strange, red-haired woman, and an encounter in the attic with some grumpy, swearing pixies.
Michael moved into the house after the prior resident has passed away little did he know that she left him something in the attic. When a strange shows up on his doorstep looking for the prior owner she reveals that she must remove something in the attic after a trip up and unusual hunting trip she finds exactly what she was looking for leaving Michaels eyes open to everything he had no idea existed.

While it’s a short novel we have just a taste of Hattie who swoops into Michaels life quickly. I actually really like her character a human who sees the not so human acting as a mediator. While it’s a brief intro I feel like I really could connect with Hattie she’s one of those types of characters I enjoy plus it’s a supernatural world.

I picked this one up earlier this month as a kindle freebie based on the cover it sounded cute. I found the concept interesting the fact that the humans live among the supernatural is always one of my favorites ideas and that Hattie is human but in the supernatural world fits. The story while flows along into a whirlwind action packed adventure. I enjoyed the authors writing style it’s captivating it was easy to read in one sitting. My only real complaint is I want a 300+ story about Hattie it’s just not long enough for my taste. I do plan to check out the rest of the series in the future.
