Into the Dreaming (with bonus material) - Karen Marie Moning

This is part of Moning's Highlander series, but it really doesn't have much to do with the other books. Its super short (less than 100 pages) and a rather "meh" read.

Jane, a romance writer, has been dreaming about a Highlander named Aedan since she was a child. One day, Jane randomly receives a tapestry with Aedan's likeness stitched on it. It looks old and priceless so she decides it would be a good idea to take a nap on it. When she wakes up, she's suddenly buck naked in medieval Scotland. Apparently, the Seelie queen has transported her back in time to save Aedan from the Unseelie King. Aedan remembers nothing of his past and it's Jane's job to make him remember before the end of the month or else he has to return to serving the Unseelie king.

My biggest problem with this story is that very little is explained. There were a lot of unanswered questions like: What is with the Seelie queen and the Unseelie king's odd relationship? Why was a tapestry delivered to Jane? Was it a tool the Seelie queen needed to transport her back? And most of all what the hell is with the kitten that appears the moment Jane wakes up in the past? What function does writing about it serve? Is it for the cute factor? A spy for one of the Fae royalty? Is it evil and plotting everyone's downfall? TELL ME.

Aside from those annoyances the love story between Aedan and Jane was... okay. There were no road blocks in their relationship though so it got old pretty quick. Jane worked to get Aedan to remember and Aedan complied. That was about it. They weren't dull characters, just not all that memorable.

I would probably only recommend this to fans of Moning. I think anyone else would probably be bored out of their gourd.
