“Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth – that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.”
This is definitely a great and fun read! It’s my first faery book, and it’s also the first book I’ve ordered from The Book Depository. Though it took almost two months to arrive (because of our local post office), it’s all worth the wait. I’ve been hearing a lot about this series and I was really looking forward on figuring how and why everybody loves it. Yeah, it is a good read, but I couldn’t say I can include it in my favorite shelf. The start of it was kinda slow for me, and it took me 5 days to read to it, which is very unusual for me. If a book is really good, I can finish it in a day or two. In the middle of reading it, it somehow reminded me of Cornelia Funke’s books especially the different creatures, setting and adventures. But this book is also different from them because of the romance and more mature characters. I admit I’ve grown to love this book because of Puck and Ash. I really can’t decide who I like more between the two, and I’m just so confused. Puck is a happy-go-lucky guy, full of jokes and laughs. While Ash is you know, the quiet, mysterious, bad-boy-look, gorgeous one that any girl couldn’t resist. I have to read the other books in the series so I can finally decide. Or maybe I’ll just have them both! LOL! My favorite charater here is Grimalkin, the sarcastic, serious, and sometimes-funny cat! LOl!
One thing’s for sure though, I really like this book! And I recommend it to everyone! I’ll be getting the next books! Maybe they would be my favorites! LOL! Yay, so excited! 😉
