Going into Waylaid I had some basic knowledge of Rachel. I own most of her books, but have only listened to the first book. However I have yet to read Peri's book, even though it's sitting waiting to be read. I was worried that reading Waylaid would spoil the series for me, but the author assured me that I could go into this blind, and not be spoiled.
Waylaid is set in Peri's world from The Drafter, with a hint of Rachel's world mixed in thanks to her arrival. Their worlds collide with the help of an accelerator, a tiny device created by Event Horizon. This device, with a bit of blood and magic, somehow transported Rachel to an alternate reality, where everything she knew hasn't happened, and she finds herself in the company of Peri.
Rachel was smiling as she came even with Peri. "It's what pixies are second best at."I loved getting to see Rachel and Jenks in the pages of this book and seeing thier reaction to a new world. Peri was someone who I instantly liked, and I would love to have her abilities, especially when I've just missed a bus. Waylaid was a very quick read for me, and I really enjoyed getting to see Peri's world and how it all worked.
"What are they best at?"
Rachel's smile widened. "Making more pixies."
You may be wondering why I only gave Waylaid 4 stars, when I loved it so much, and that's any easy question to answer. I wanted more. When I began reading I fell into this book fast and hard, and before I knew it, the end had come. Just imagine what these two powerful women could do given the time and opportunity. I would love to have seen them have more time together, thier story was over far to fast for my liking.
Waylaid was a book I really enjoyed, and it's left me wanting to binge read The Hollows and The Drafter. Waylaid is the perfect blend of two worlds, without spoilers, but with just enough of each to make this a unique read.
