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.
This book started for me very much like the first book in this series, with Meghan being weak and not too sure of herself or her emotions. I think that is something every teen can relate to...so in that way I like it, from an adult reader perspective, it annoyed me. I did enjoy seeing the Unseelie court in all it's glory.
I love that there is finally some more romantic tension in the Puck area and I, as always, enjoyed seeing Grim again...he always knows when and where to be, and in his own weird way I think he likes Meghan. I was happy to see Meghan finally stepping to the plate and embarrassing her inner fairy...although I was sad to see one of my favorite characters fall. I had grown to love him and now *sniff* he is gone.
I also hate how the monarchs of the courts berate her for being a "stupid human" yet they always expect so freaking much from her. She always delivers, you think they would show some faith or a bit of appreciation, but no...anyway, I enjoyed this book and can't wait to see what else is in store for Meghan and the gang.
