This urban fantasy does not pull any punches. I am still recovering from some of the things in here. Douglas is a recovering drug addict who decides to stay with his grandmother in Scotland so that he can be as far away as possible from bad influences and to get clean. He raises funds by busking, and a lot of this book is about music. Meanwhile while he is in Scotland he suddenly gets the Sight and can see faeryfolk, which gets him into a lot of trouble, but he has some tricks up his sleeve as well. This book is really vivid and engrossing, but also rather dark. Characters in here and things that happened genuinely surprised me.

The writing style was good. Despite the swearing, I got into the story. Then things started to get a little dark and bloody ... and then I absolutely hated the end. I kept waiting for the, "No, really, I'm just kidding. Honestly, this ends well" moment. It never came. I recommend for people who like cussing, blood, and bad endings.
