Not another UF you say. Well, yes, sorry. She's not the most likable heroine, (she can be a bit sarcastic, stubborn, even bordering on the edge of TSTL - and utterly normal. She's not flashy or edgy, she likes routine and gets freaked out at the sight of blood)
But the worldbuilding of Faerie is fantastic, intricate and doesn't dumb it down for the audience. The relationship between Tybalt and Toby is often confusing, filled with conflict and the romance is a very SLOW build that takes place over at least 6 books. The pay off you get when it all comes to fruition is awesome.
The secondary characters are fleshed out well (some more than others) and people do die upon occasion - so these aren't filled with happy endings at every single book.
I will keep reading until she's done writing them.
