Harlequin, 368 pages
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, there will be no turning back.
— Amazon.com description
Told through vivid descriptions and Meghan’s relatable voice (yes, relatable, even though she’s a faery princess and all that), get ready for a ton of emotional highs and lows in this book. Yeah, I didn’t think it was possible, but the third book in this series brings even more EPICNESS.
The characters continue to grow and evolve, which is more than can be said for many series. Their stories reach new levels of emotion and—yes—romance. Ooh-la-la!
Reading too many descriptions of the book, and perhaps even its title, spoiled a bit for me, so I’ll leave it at that. Fans at the series will be gasping at the ending, ready to count down for the release of Book 4.
Before I go, can we discuss casting? I love love love Ash, and all I can picture when reading is Ben Barnes. Does anyone agree?
