Zara and her friends thought they’d solved the pixie problem. And they did — sort of. The pixies are all locked away, deep in the woods. But the king’s needs grow stronger each day that he is in captivity, while his control over his people weakens. And it’s enough to draw a new king into town. Astley claims he is different. He claims there are pixies who can live peacefully with humans, that it doesn’t have to be all violence and nastiness all the time. Zara wants to believe him . . . until Astley also claims that she is fated to be his queen.
There is no way Zara would ever turn pixie. And she’s got good friends who will make sure of that. Besides, she and Nick are so in love they’re practically inseparable. But when the very thing Zara wants to protect most is exactly what’s at risk, she is forced to make choices she never imagined. . . .
I wanted to scream during the middle of this book! There was so much suspense and waiting to see what would finally happen and what decisions would be made. I couldn't help but have my heart racing at high points in this novel. Poor Zara. She has so many choices to make and so many things go wrong. The love that she has for Nick is amazingly awesome. They are an adorable couple and what happens to them astounds me. I would like to point out...the ending sucks (not literally, of course). The ending left me hanging! I was so excited to find out what happens and how everything goes with Zara, but that's it. The end of the novel. Ugh! Jones sure knows how to keep me intrigued and make me read the next one in the series. I'll let you all know if it ends in a meaningful wrapped up way! This is a great series for those of you who love paranormal romancy gushiness as well as adventure and action.
