 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. 

Okay! This cover is just... odd... It really looks like she is crying a drop of golden tear. I don't know why, but I think it is just weird. Okay, enough of my cover ranting, Lets go to the story. There is a new pixie king in the story. The "hot, handsome, mysterious, charming" Astley who make Zara feels like she can trust him and have a "connection". Straight of all, I don't like how a guy would just come in and expect that the girl is his or that they are "destined to be together" even if Zara is a bit oo bossy for my taste. All of the sudden, a hot pixie dude come into the story. and almost everyone like forget all about Nick and start swooning for Astley. (I have seen it on Goodreads, it is just my opinion, remember.) Sure, he is hot, but he still don't have that love that Zara and Nick have since the first book. Okay, I do like Astley because he is very cool... that is about it. There is so going to be a love triangle just like in Twilight.
GRR and someone died too! But will not tell you who because it will ruin a bit. And the end, ahh!

But solid characters as always. Zara wasn't that annoying or was she? *shrugs* She will always be annoying in a way, but not like Grace from The Lost Saint. That girl want me to kill her, but THAT is a story for another day ;)

★  3/5 Stars
