This is a young adult fantasy/paranormal novel (Rated PG-13)

(Four beating hearts)
Book Blurb
Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.
Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

My Review

To say I wasn’t blown away is an understatement. The story dragged a lot in places and was interesting in others. My biggest problem was the insta love from the first book which I haven’t yet gotten over. I’m sorry to say, I just didn’t get it. Why would a certain someone risk or give it all up for someone he barely knows. At this point, I’ll have to just accept it. But I found it really hard. And poor the other guy. Gosh, I just wanted to give him a hug.

So, this story moves on from the last stop. Meghan acts clueless about why Prince Ash is acting aloof despite him warning her in the last book. I mean duh. I know she is sixteen, but he all but spelled it out to her. And I read the 1.5 book and he did there as well. So why she doesn’t get it, I don’t know.

Still, the story was rich in characters and was interesting enough that I will continue on. The ending was a surprise to me and I’m curious most certainly to see where the story goes from here. I must say that I was able to accept the love thing at the end, so hopeful that won’t hinder my enjoyment in the next installment.

Overall, worth a read. Prince Ash really grew on me in this book.

Audio Review

Khristine Hvam is an awesome narrator. I’ve listen to other books she’s done. This one is really good except she seemed limited to when it came to the powerful woman in the realm who all sounded much the same. And I wondered why she felt the need to do so. Three powerful fairy women should be distinctive but they were not. But I will forgive her as everything else was excellent.

My book boyfriend, Ash.
