Totally awesome! I was hooked from the first minute. Great story, great characters and great actors. It is so NOT your typical fairy tale story. It is set in this Victorian/Steampunk fantasy land and centers around a war that left a lot of fae creatures homeless and seeking refuge in The Burgh. It has this gothic vibe going on which is really cool.
The characters are well drawn and you get into the story really quick even without knowing the background of the main characters which is not revealed until the third episode. The story might be predictable but it has quite a few unexpected twists and turns and keeps you glued to the screen the whole time.
The settings are awesome and something that you rarely see in a series.

I can't believe there are only eight episodes to this first season. But I am so relieved that Amazon renewed it for another season. Hopefully with more episodes to it. I know I cannot wait for the next season!
