“With the defeat of King Atroth, McKenzie's stuck in the middle of the Fae war. Sides have been switched and it's hard to always tell who can be trusted. Then McKenzie's best friend, Paige, turns up missing and has been taken by the remnants, who are fae that are still loyal to the King. McKenzie has to rescue her even though she has a feeling it might not be easy.
I felt like there was nonstop fighting in this book! Every time McKenzie needed to go somewhere, there was always battles and she was always on the run. On top of that, Aren and McKenzie never got any alone time and when they would finally get together, they were interrupted! What was up with that? It was sooo frustrating!
I still really like McKenzie and I liked that she was sticking up for herself more even though she spent a lot of time trying to help everyone. I was so happy when she was finally coming to term with her feelings.
Aren was great as always. I really warmed up to him even more and I loved how he was always watching out for McKenzie. He really made me laugh when he was helping her in the bath!
My heart still goes out for Kyol. He really put on a brave face most of the time but you could just tell how he really felt.
It was nice getting to know some of the characters more in depth or...just more. It's a little confusing with all the rebel fae, the court fae and the remnant fae but at least a few stuck out. Trev was one I find really interesting and I really like Naito. I can't help but hope things will work out for him.
What happened and what will happen with Paige is really intriguing but I'm not really happy with how her and McKenzie's relationship is being affected. Lorn is another one that's being set up to be disappointing but I'm not really buying it.
And then comes the WTH moment....really? really? Why did it have to go there? I had accepted the way things were and then SW had to go and screw with us!
The working title of the next book is The Shackled Night and unfortunately it won't be out till January 2014.
♥ “You told me you wanted time. I’ve given it to you, and I’ll give you as long as you need, McKenzie. I love you.” He tucks a lock of my hair behind my ear. “You’re worth waiting a decade for.”
♥ “I love you. Sidhe, I know I have no right to tell you this, but I do. I always will.”
