Zara White and her friends kind of solved the pixie problem by locking them away in the woods. However, as the king’s needs grow stronger and his control weakens, it draws a new king to Zara’s town. This new king, Astley, claims that he and his people are different — that pixies and humans can live peacefully together without the violence and the needs taking them over. Zara believes this until he claims that she is fated to be his queen. Zara will never become a pixie, but when something threatens the most important thing in her life, she may be forced to make a decision she would have never made before…

Okay. Another supernatural book. :P Hopefully, I will make this review a short one because it takes longer to write a longer review of it. :(  Oh, there may be some spoilers. :)

Like in the first book of this series, I liked some areas of the book, but in the others… bleh. :( Though, there are more interesting parts than “bleh” parts this time. Some things that are interesting about the book, in my opinion, were how the beginning of each chapter opened up with some kind of information about pixies, and also there is a little bit more “supernaturals” added to pixies and weres like Valhalla, Odin, and other Norse myths. With the Norse myths added into the plot line, it became a lot more interesting than the first book. :)

Like the first book, the things that I didn’t like about the book were the lack of or very few descriptions of characters and events, though there were more descriptions in this book than in the first book. I can’t wait for the sequel since this series has become more interesting now. :)

Where I Got It:

Checked out from the library.
