Each book in this series adds a little more to the mythology. In book 1, we learned about fairies and their biology. In book 2, we learned about where the fairies live and their culture. In this book we got to learn a lot about the history of the fairies with some fun references to Shakespeare and King Arthur. There's a lot of mystery and intrigue going on about a new character and what their motives are that I can tell is building up to a great finale. In addition to that there's some love triangle drama/angst/fun - whatever you want to call it (I think it's fun, romantic and just a little bittersweet). Laurel insists it's not fun to have guys fight over her, but I agree with Laurel's mom - it seems fun. At least to watch anyway. We get to see things from Tamani's perspective for the first time and it just makes me like him all the more. The romance completely swept me away. At the end, I was left with this feeling that this whole thing isn't going to end well. I hope I'm wrong and that Aprilynne surprises me with the ending in the last book. I'm off to read it and I'm so excited!show moreby Jessica B
I absolutely adore this series! Aprilynne Pike has created such a great group of characters that you just fall in love with. With Yuki being a new character to the story it has allowed Laurel, David, Chelsea and Tamani to become even closer as a group as they plan and decipher who she is and what is her connection with Klea. A simple, easy to follow read as it helps one to escape own reality and become engrossed into the faery/human world. Can't wait for the finale!show moreby Christina
