Back Cover Blurb:
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.
I thoroughly enjoy how well developed the characters in this novel are. We get to know a great deal about who they truly are, what lies underneath the polished court exteriors. And this doesn’t end with the main characters in the novel. It extends throughout the supporting cast as well, allowing readers to connect with everyone who graces the pages of this novel. My heart breaks for the characters in this one. It’s very Romeo & Juliet, with a definite twist and without the horrid ending. The variety of creatures and species that we meet are simply magical. The way that she develops them is brilliant too, and never hampers your imagination.
Kagawa may just be one of my favourite YA authors. Once you open one of her books you’re transported into your most vivid fantasies. This novel is no exception.
