Synopsis from Goodreads:
Aran Cole hacks code and sells his gaming cheats on the black market. It's barely a living, and one he's not proud of. But when he turns his skills to unlocking the secrets behind Feyland—the most exciting and immersive game on the market—he discovers power and magic beyond his wildest dreams.
Spark's mission is clear; pull Aran from the clutches of the fey folk and restore the balance between the worlds. But can she risk her life for someone who refuses to be rescued?
Although I truly enjoyed reconnecting with Spark and the other Feyland characters in this novel, I absolutely fell in love with Aran, a new character in this novel. He is the perfect counterpoint to Spark. Both their similarities and differences shine through to make quite the show as they get to know one another. In fact, all of the major characters in this novel are quite well developed.
I loved this novel as much, if not more, than Sharp’s previous novels. I can’t wait to read more about this wonderful world.
