I’ll admit I was initially attracted to Never Let You Fall by the gorgeous cover. I read the blurb (which is, in a good way, rather vague) quickly, just enough to know the book had some sort of paranormal/fantasy element. I actually think it improved my experience to know as little as possible going into the book, and I’m so glad I read it, because…I loved it!I really don’t what to say too much in this review because, as I said above, I think readers will enjoy the book even more if you don’t know too much going into it. I will say that Never Let You Fall was an escapist read for me, in the best way possible. It swept me away into a larger-than-life story and romance. I loved both main characters, even though Xander was at times almost too perfect to believe, and I felt for both of them dealing with difficult childhoods and the loss of their families and, for so many years, the loss of each other as well. I also found the secondary characters interesting, and I appreciated the way the author continued to develop them throughout the story, leaving me questioning their motives and eager to learn more.Another thing I really, really liked was the way this novel melded the contemporary and fantasy genres. While I like fantasy, I often have trouble staying interested in traditional fantasy novels. I’m not sure exactly why, but I think it has something to do with the combination of the quasi-historical settings and complex world-building. As much as I want to like it, I find it hard to stay fully involved while reading. Never Let You Fall got around those issues by beginning in a contemporary setting and focusing on characters who’ve grown up in our world, even when they transition to more of a fantasy environment. This made the book much more accessible and enjoyable for me, as did the fact that the world-building, while interesting, wasn’t overly complicated. And I loved the parts of the world-building that were reminiscent of traditional fantasy, and even of fairy tales.While Never Let You Fall doesn’t end with what I’d call a cliffhanger, it definitely leaves a lot of possibilities open for a sequel. And I’m definitely looking forward to reading it!
