Never-Contented Things – By Sarah Porter


Goodreads Synopsis: Prince and his fairy courtiers are staggeringly beautiful, unrelentingly cruel, and exhausted by the tedium of the centuries ― until they meet foster-siblings Josh and Ksenia. Drawn in by their vivid emotions, undying love for each other, and passion for life, Prince will stop at nothing to possess them.

First seduced and then entrapped by the fairies, Josh and Ksenia learn that the fairies’ otherworldly gifts come at a terrible price ― and they must risk everything in order to reclaim their freedom.

Because I enjoyed a previous book by Sarah Porter, Vassa In The Night, I hoped that this book would be equally enjoyable.  I also received a copy of it from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Never- Contented Things follows the story of two foster-siblings, Josh and Ksenia, who are in an unhealthy co-dependent, think they love each other relationship.  Let me be honest. This book is weird. The writing is weird, the story is weird, the dialogue made me cringe, the world unexplained,  and the main characters in an almost incestuous relationship.   I was equally uncomfortable with this book and bored by it. Which is a new combination for me.

I wish I had something nice to say about this book, but I only made it to about 20% into the story before I couldn’t stand to read anymore.   I am disappointed that I didn’t like this book, but I would be willing to read more by this author because of how much I liked Vassa In The Night. In the end I gave Never-Contented Things 1 star on Goodreads.
