Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.
Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

This is going to be a quickie.
I really enjoyed this book. I liked being back in the Nevernever. I will say that the Winter Court is freaking scary as hell.  Mab terrifies me, and she’s pretty crappy to her kids.  Also, not a fan of Ash’s brother. He’s a jerk.
I can’t imagine having to be Ash in this setting either. We all know how things happened in the previous book, but while he’s home he has to pretend that he loathes Meghan. And he says some pretty hurtful things.  Also, not a whole lot of Puck in this one, and that makes me sad. I love Puck.
There are some twists and turns. Ones I wasn’t expecting, and after the way this one ended I definitely need to get to the next book soon. I have to see what happens next. And see if we’ll be in the real world or back in the Nevernever.
If you like books about the Fae, this is definitely a series to pick up.
