Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.

The book was okay— not as good as the first i would say. It certainly felt like a drag at the beginning and middle, but finally started picking up at the end. I find Astley a sweetheart, but still team Nick! Lets see if that switches in the next 2 books....

A really good, fun, captivating read :) I loved the plot, and couldn't put the book down. I liked the introduction of Astley, especially since it put a new perspective on the intentions and actions of pixies. Very good book, I definitely enjoyed reading it!

This book really engages me - and not always in a good way. There are times where I get so frustrated with the characters and the decisions they make, but the author does a good job bringing them to life, and making you believe that they have some sense and may be able to succeed someway or how. But be prepared for the plot twists.

Great book!!!! Definitely as good as the first book, which was AMAZING! Astley is a great character.

This is a good book. It drags on a little at the beginning but still has an interesting subject. Superb ending though! Carrie Jones really gave it a killer ending.

this book is exceptionally above average, though it's not the best book I've ever read.

Enjoyable read, and no vampires! I am concerned that Jones has painted her love triangle into a corner.
