Why I Picked This Up: I immediately started this the same night I finished Shadowspell!
Why You Should Read This: Great series! Buy all three books at once!
Dana has been invited by the Seelie Queen to be officially presented at the palace in Faerie. This is a great honor that can not be refused even though it seems like a dangerous trick. Dana along with her father, Finn, Keane, Ethan, and Kimber begin their travels to the Seelie palace. Tensions run high between Keane and Ethan along the way. Some of my favorite parts of this book include Keane picking on Ethan and Ethan bringing down Keane's shields allowing Dana to knee him in the groin during practice. Absolutely hilarious and entertaining to me but the travels are an agonizing ride on horse back for Dana.
Along their travels they are attacked and Dana's horse takes off with her. She learns more about what her dangerous magic can do just when she needs it. The Erlking is still around protecting his deal and what he hopes Dana will one day give him. Once they have finally arrived at the palace they think they get to relax and enjoy themselves. But a set up against Dana leads the group to flee leaving behind her father and Finn. Dana and her gang take off for safety but lots of fighting jealousy and new feelings makes the trip difficult. Dana wants to clear her name and make sure her family and friends are safe. She puts in some bravery, luck, and brains into a plan to clear her name and stop the faeriewalker hunt on her forever.
A great conclusion to a wonderful trilogy. I don't think the author plans on any more books but I would love it if she did. This was an amazing ride with such wonderful characters. I grew to love Dana and Keane so much during this story. A wonderfully unique faerie series. Such great humor and action throughout.
"Far be it from me to insult your manhood," Ethan said. "I'm sure you'd have no trouble whatsoever defending against my magic." Keane sneered. "Just like you'd have no trouble whatsoever defending yourself in a fair fight. Right?"
Rating: 4/5 faeries!
