"Donna Underwood is in deep trouble.An ancient alchemical order is holding her accountable for destroying the last precious drops of the elixar of life. Never mind the fact that Donna was acting to free her friend, Navin, from the dangerous clutches of the Wood Queen at the time. But what the alchemists have in store is nothing compared to the wrath of the fey. The Wood Queen has been tricked and Donna must pay. Get ready for all hell - quite literally - to break loose..."

After reading the first book and really liking it, I knew I wanted to read the second book. This book pick up right from where it left off. Donna is still facing the consequences of her past actions and much need work is needed to be done.

What I liked most about this book, is that Donna is stronger. She is exposing secrets left and right. I like that Donna is being head on about things. She is tired of lies and demands the truth. I totally agree with her. Enough lies! 

The love interest didn't grow as much as I wanted it to, but it did bring some revelation about their relationship. Let's just say the guy wasn't totally honest either. There love suffered a bit and I am anxious to see, with all the new revelations how its going to go now.

Despite the occasional predictability, it ends up being a satisfyingly read. The Wood Queen, had lots of action that kept you at the edge of your seat.

I give it 4 BITES!
Happy Reading!


  1. I am so looking forward to reading this! Happy to see such high reviews for it :) Thanks!

  2. Cool! I still have to read Iron Witch. Will I ever catch up on books?

  3. I liked the first one but I wasn't so happy with the love interest, Was it X? Anyway I was hoping for more in the second book so I'm a little sad it won't...

  4. I have friends who keep trying to get me to read this series--so glad to hear book two is still good! :) Glad you enjoyed.

  5. I'm all curious now since both you and Danny mentioned not being too on board with the love interest. I kind of want to know if I'll feel the same way! Glad it was still an enjoyable read despite all the lies and the predictability:)
