Genre: Urban Fantasy
I’m Ivy Lane, and lately, my life has been suspiciously free of faerie-related drama. But there’s a storm coming.
Now, the lords of Faerie know I have their magic. What they don’t know is that I killed a powerful faerie, and might just have doomed both our worlds in the process. With hellhounds camping out in my garden and a dark uprising amongst the half-faeries, something bad is on the move in Faerie.
The evil that rose to destroy our world twenty years ago is back. After all, in the place where the faerie realm meets the spirit world, nothing truly dies…
I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.
This has been a solid urban fantasy series so far and this book was no different. Ivy and Vance are just back from their vacation when they land right into another issue that requires their attention. The start of this one felt a bit slow, but once they start finding clues and coming closer to finding out what’s going the pace seemed to pick up and I got more into the story. The further you get the better the book gets. The ending was really good and makes me curious to read the seventh and final book in this series to see how everything will be resolved.
It’s again filled with action, battles, nasty fairies and the faerie realms. Ivy and Vance are a good couple and I like how they fight together to solve whatever is threatening their realm now. Really it’s hard to say a lot about this book that I haven’t said already. It’s an enjoyable series that has kept my attention so far and each book has it’s own plot line, but there are also some connections or things that build-up from the previous books. In this book that effect was the strongest as there are multiple references to things that happened before and how those events impact what happens now.
And this book leads up to what might be their biggest problem so far and when the book ends we’re halfway through basically. Ivy knows what’s going on and things are pretty bad and the last book will tell how everything gets resolved. Compared to the other books this ending would almost be called a cliffhanger as it doesn’t have as clear an ending as the previous books. But I thought it really worked here and the way things end just makes me curious for the last book and I hope I can read that one soon.
I felt like this book shed some light on previous addressed things and we come closer to understanding exactly what Ivy and her magic is capable of and what started the invasion. Each book gives us a few hints but here it starts to all tie together. Even the previous big bad guys of each book seem connected now. And the ending hints that we’re going to see a part of Faerie and the faeries we haven’t seen so far in the next book, so that should be interesting.
To summarize: this was a great read! I enjoyed this series so far and this book is just as good as the previous ones. The start was a tad slow and it didn’t keep my attention as much, but the further I got the better it got. It’s filled with action, magic and paranormal stuff. I like how this book set the stage for book 7. It also sheds some light on some big things that have been going on so far and I feel like this book ties some things that happened so far together. The ending was well done and with how things are left hanging I am curious to see how the last book will wrap things up.
