I had read Finn and was looking forward to seeing what else was in store for our Pooka and his man.

From the Publisher:
Diego and Finn’s peaceful life in Montana shatters when Diego unwittingly rips a hole in the Veil to the Otherworld—mysterious prophecies, dying fae, hostile government agents, and there’s so much more that could still go wrong.
After defeating an evil wendigo, a man and his pooka lover deserve a little quiet. Unfortunately, Diego and Finn’s hard-won peace is disturbed when Diego, in a jealous rage, unwittingly rips a hole in the impenetrable Veil to the Otherworld.
Separated, stuck on the other side of the Veil where Finn has to face old conflicts and Diego is the only human in a land of fae, the two of them navigate rocky waters between huge egos and ancient feuds. Worse still, some of the fae are dying of a mysterious illness and everyone believes Diego is the key to a cure. Things can’t possibly get any worse, can they? Oh, yes—they can when the US government gets involved.
Some time has passed since the end of Finn and we find our boys in Montana. A miscommunication causes an accident that sends them both into the land of the Fae.
I found the Otherworld to be a rich setting with interesting characters. And we are introduced to a lot of new personalities.
Overall, I liked Diego a little more than the first book however, it felt like the book was told in three, distinctive parts parts. The first being the adventure in the land of the fae and dealing with the mysterious illness, which lasts about half way through the book. During this time we also see more of Finn and Diego’s relationship developing.
The second part felt like it came out of left field, and while exciting, didn’t feel like it should have been part of the same book but another installment. It was horrifically descriptive and dark; a stark contrast to the beauty of the fae world.
It then transitions into “act 3” so to speak, and a frustrating miscommunication and eight long months pass before we get our HEA. The end is satisfying though, and I read the whole book in a day, wanting to see what happened next. If you enjoyed Finn, I recommend reading Diego.
I would like to thank Angel Martinez for providing me with the eRC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
