Tarynn Kerr is the author of the YA Paranormal novel Lure. She has a degree in psychology but probably should have gotten one in mythology instead because that’s way cooler. She lives in southern California where she works a boring day job and covertly writes down her daydreams when her boss isn’t looking. Aside from writing, she enjoys reading and eating enormous amounts of mac ‘n’ cheese.

Lure provides a glimpse into the world of the Seelie and tells us they aren't necessarily the good guys we've thought them to be. It's all a matter of perspective, and no matter what humans are not allowed. I was intrigued by the relationship (or lack thereof) between the courts, and how each one regarded humanity. Most of this story was a bit hollow for me, though I loved Cearo. The characters didn't draw a great deal of emotions from me, but I did become invested enough to read to the end, not expecting it to be a cliffhanger as it was. There could have been a lot more development for David, Eric and their Mom, and I would have loved the story had I known more about why things were so tense with the fae. The author was obviously a great fan of fairy stories, as am I, and I enjoyed the references to the old tales. In the end, I suppose this just fell a bit short for me, with very little in the way of detail and complexity, it was like staring into a pond and only seeing the reflection. I'd love to have gone deeper. 3 stars
