Synopsis:

My name is Meghan Chase.

I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, t
here will be no turning back.



My Review:
If there was ever a book that could leave me speechless when I was done reading it, it was this one. Seriously, I've been looking at this screen for over an hour now, just trying to figure out how I even want to say how I feel.

This book is full of any emotion I can think of, anger, love, fear, suspense, jealousy, sadness, depression. It tore me to pieces in parts, and gave me the biggest smile in the next part. I never thought I would see the day that I would love a slower paced book, but this one, is truly amazing.

I loved the other 2 books so far in the series, but this one has the number one spot in the series, by a land slide. Meghan was so brave throughout the whole thing. The poor girl goes through so much in the series, but yet she still get handed more problems that only she can deal with. If I were here, I don't know if I would be able to handle it all.

Then there is Ash. I don't know how to even put words to my feelings for Ash, except maybe I need to be medicated for wishing he were real. Even though I am a small peon of a human that wouldn't get his attention what-so-ever, a girl can still dream right? *Spoiler Alert* The time when Ash becomes Meghan's knight made me melt. When he gave her his true name without a second thought. *swoon* I fell in love with Ash so much at that moment. I have re-read that part several times so far, and I have a feeling I will be re-reading it for a long time to come. *End Spoiler Alert*

The romance in this book is swoon-worthy for sure. You won't be able to stop reading it for the love alone. But there is also the sarcastic comments from Puck, the mysteriousness of Grimalkin, and the importance of even the creatures considered scum within the Fae world.

This book is mainly set in the Faery world, but it is also sometimes in the mortal world and the Between. Kagawa does a great job of still keeping the description to where you can picture everything going on, but not enough that you feel bored and tired of reading what things look like. It is nice to find a book with a great balance within the story.

The book is left in a cliff hanger for me. Even the epilogue makes you feel like you have to rush to read the next book and figure out what is going to happen. I am definitely glad I bought the boxset for this series so I have been able to keep grabbing the books as I finish them.

I am sorry for the review being so boring, but I really don't know what to say without giving away the whole plot of the story. I want you all to be able to read this and love it like I do without it being ruined for you because of my review. I just hope you all see the love I have for this series, especially this book in particular and run out and start reading this series yourself.



Couldn't Put It Down!!
