I was hoping for a little bit more from Helen Scott Taylor’s “The Magic Knot”. This is a contemporary paranormal about a half-Fae, half-pisky who learns the truth about her lineage with the help of a sexy half-Fae, half-leprechaun.
When Rose heads for her latest accounting job in Cornwall, the last thing she expected to encounter was a sexy biker with a serious attitude. Although her mother had always warned her never to enter Cornwall, after her mother’s death Rose is feeling lost and wants to search for her Cornish father. What she finally finds in this magical land will change her life…assuming she lives through it.
Niall is a protector. Right now he has his hands full hiding his sister and brother from the eyes of the Fae Queen. The last thing he wanted, or expected, was the beautiful woman he meets at his brother’s pub turning out to be not only a Pisky Queen, but his mate.
It started out with such promise, but for me, the scope of the story was too much for just 300 pages. There were chunks of information left dangling, or missing, and the action moved at an incredible pace. The main characters didn’t seem to have much time to connect which left me confused when they fell in (and out of) love so often and so quickly. The setting, on the other hand, was fabulous and made me want to visit Cornwall again. I think in the end I’d have to say the editing of the story was likely what caused me problems. I’ll be looking to see what Helen Scott Taylor comes up with next and hope the scope is more agreeable to the length of the story.
