Diego’s banishment is just about up. While he’s learned a lot, he’s worried how that will translate back in the human world.  Diego has no idea what he’ll do when he returns but as long as Finn is by his side, he knows everything will be okay.

No Fae is An Island is the newest book in the Endangered Fae series and I have to tell you, I was really looking forward to this book.  When book three ended, Diego had been banished to the Otherworld for three years and three days.  As his mate, Finn goes with him and the two learn more about themselves as well as those that populate the Otherworld.   While both men are excited about returning to the human world, they are also nervous, which is understandable since they have no idea what they are returning to.  The author does a great job bringing this uncertainty across realistically.

However, it is not only Diego and Finn who are unsure how to proceed.  Zack has gotten used to being the Fae’s representative, although the job drives him crazy at times.  As much as he wants to give the job back to Diego, he also hates giving it up. Then there is Theo. 

Theo has just as many reasons to be concerned as anyone, which is totally understandable.  I was curious how he and Diego would react around each other and their behavior plays true.  If anything, I think their reactions to each other was a little tame.  It is Theo that the romantic portion of this story centers on and I love the character that the author has paired him with.  Limpet is a selkie and, as the baby of his pack, has been protected to the point that he feels smothered.   Deciding to do something about it, he runs away and crosses the veil with Diego and Finn, unbeknownst to them.   This is when he meets Theo and I loved their first meeting.  Limpet has no knowledge of the human world or even some of the other paranormals.  This leads to some laughable moments as Limpet finds himself in one situation after another.  As for his relationship with Theo, the two are hot together.  Theirs is a relationship that brings both men a measure of peace, as Theo learns to forgive himself for his past actions, and Limpet learns to stand up for himself.  

No Fae is An Island is a great addition to this series.  Each book must be read in order or you will not get the full impact of what is going on.  I am waiting to see what the author has planned next and hope the author has plans for future stories.
