"On top of spending most of her time in a bunkerlike safe house and having her dates hijacked by a formidable Fae bodyguard, Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway is in for some more bad news: the Erlking and his pack of murderous minions known as the Wild Hunt have descended upon Avalon. With his homicidal appetite and immortal powers, the Erlking has long been the nightmare of the Fae realm. A fragile treaty with the Faerie Queen, sealed with a mysterious spell, is the one thing that keeps him from hunting unchecked in Avalon, the only place on Earth where humans and Fae live together. Which means Dana’s in trouble, since it’s common knowledge that the Faerie Queen wants her – and her rare Faeriewalker powers – dead. The smoldering, sexy Erlking’s got his sights set on Dana, but does he only seek to kill her, or does he have something much darker in mind?"

This book is filled with major drama. Boy drama. Girl drama. Family drama. So much so that I loved it! Dana is once again trying to help everyone out. Even at the cost of her being in danger and her getting in trouble she does anything she can do to help.

What I like most os the strength that Dana has. I love seeing characters who fight till the very end. She did not give up when she was trapped at the safe house, she did not give up when her father threaten her. She did what she had to do to save the ones that she loves.

The love interest in the book were good. We see Dana struggling with relationships and what she should do. Dana's heart is being pulled in all kinds of directions. Dana is very mature and is a character like no other. In the end she made a willing sacrifice to save the one she loves. Even if it cost her.

Ms. Black left nothing out in this book. Everything is written perfectly and smoothly. The emotions flowed through this book so good I could not stopped turning pages. I felt everything and more. I can not wait to see what the next book will reveal.

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. Savy! I finally have a blog button! Happy!

  2. So glad you liked this one. I really enjoyed Glimmerglass and can't wait to grab this one. I loved Dana in the first book, and I liked both boys. It's hard to choose, but I'm rather hoping she ends up with the guard's son (I forget his name)

  3. I need to read this series! I've heard the books are wonderful, and I'm so glad to see that you think the second book is a 5 which means it must be as good or better than the first one:) I like that you said Dana is mature, that gives me hope that all the drama around her will be the good kind of drama and not the kind that is filled with way too much angst:)

  4. Great review!! I am still waiting for my copy of glimmerglass to arive so that I can start this series! I am really excited! Thank you for sharing!

  5. I'm not actually reading the review because I don't want to spoil anything for myself but I just recently bought this one and am excited to see you gave it such a high rating. I can't wait to read it now!

  6. Oh I loved the first book in this series and I want this one! Even more so now! Oh, I love how mature her character is and I'm glad it continues. Thanks for such a great review!

  7. I haven't read the first book yet, but I like the sound of this one, especially the drama aspect! :)

  8. Great review!!! I have to start this series soon! Love Jenna Black! =D

  9. I really need to read this again. I tried to read after I read Shadowfever but struggled with it as I seem to have trouble switching from adult to ya paranormal. Great review :)
