In the realm of Faerie, the time has come for Roiben's coronation. Uneasy in the midst of the malevolent Unseelie Court, pixie Kaye is sure of only one thing -- her love for Roiben. But when Kaye, drunk on faerie wine, declares herself to Roiben, he sends her on a seemingly impossible quest. Now Kaye can't see or speak to Roiben unless she can find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a lie. Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye decides to tell her mother the truth -- that she is a changeling left in place of the human daughter stolen long ago. Her mother's shock and horror sends Kaye back to the world of Faerie to find her human counterpart and return her to Ironside. But once back in the faerie courts, Kaye finds herself a pawn in the games of Silarial, queen of the Seelie Court. Silarial wants Roiben's throne, and she will use Kaye, and any means necessary, to get it. In this game of wits and weapons, can a pixie outplay a queen?

 First Thoughts: "Ahhhhhh, I have it!" I have been waiting for this book for years, I have always been a big Holly Black fan. I was so happy to start digging into it.

Cover: I must say, I like the other cover more, but this cover is still as great. I love that this cover have the crown that I think is of the Unseelie Court and of Lord Roiben.

Setting: I love the setting, it have the dark atmosphere and it's the Seelie and Unseelie Courts in the realm of Faeries! So rich and detailed.

Characters" The characters in Black's world is solid with emotions and life, so real in a fantastic realm of faeries including The Queen of the Seelie Court

Plot: The plot is fantastic! The fight, the hunger for power! Everyone was awesome and everything was amazing. The faeries are hungry, but not food hungry. They are hungry for POWERS. I know it was going to be fantastic!

Recommends: Every faeries fans in the world!

Rate: ★ 5/5 STARS!
