  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lance | 3/12/2009

    " Fourth book in the Fairies Wars Chronicle. Not a bad read (some very good, other parts a bit slow or cheesy). Solid young adult fantasy fiction. Wouldn't put it on a "must read list" but worth the time to check out if you are looking for a new series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 1/11/2008

    " A great and touching ending to this quartet of books. Involves a lot of action and some romance. Definitely geared towards lower teen readers with the nice short chapters, but an enjoyable read even for an adult. I just wish there were more books than these four. "
