The worlds of the Faeries of the Light and the Faeries of the Night are always at war. Ruler of the Faeries of the Light Queen Holly Blue, and her brother Pyrgus, must always be on the lookout for the evil schemes of their foe from the other side, Lord Hairstreak. Queen Blue is suspicious when Hairstreak proposes a truce between the warring faeries. While they debate this treaty, the faerie demons of the night plot a hostile takeover. Implanting Henry Atherton with a controlling device, they force him to kidnap Queen Blue, unbeknownst to Pyrgus and Lord Hairstreak. Now it's up to Pyrgus to rescue his dear sister and queen, and save the Faerie Realm.

    " I enjoyed! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeimy | 1/31/2014

    " This book is amazing! The entire series needs to be made into a movie! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sinovera | 1/23/2014

    " This book's structure was so weird. It spent HOW many pages building up the whole situation? Then it spent basically 10 pages (maybe even less?) wrapping it all up. The whole book was people going, "The Nighters did whaaa?!" "The Lighters did whaaa?!" "The demons did whaaa?!" "HUUUH?!" "OOOH I GET IT!" The End. It was odd. It almost felt like Brennan wanted to write this long well formed book... and then ran out of time at the end. Things wrapped up too fast. Not enough description, not enough dialogue, not enough character connections at the end. The first 7/8 of the book was fine and dandy... it's just the final 1/8th was too short. I feel like I just had this amazing climb up a mountain. Great scenery, and excited to get to the top to see what's there... then at the top there's the bottom again. Makes you go "...what?" Right? Yeah.. that's basically how I felt at the end of this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/18/2014

    " This one was much, much better. I was wholeheartedly pleased with this one. All of the main, favorite characters were back, and this installment was wonderfully done to be grouped with the others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nandanie | 1/16/2014

    " beautiful just cant get any better love it henry should accept blue's offer though "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 1/16/2014

    " gorgeous cover "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/10/2014

    " I liked it quite a bit, but wasn't quite as wowed as I was by the first two books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corey Scala | 1/7/2014

    " Another one that always leaves you wondering where it's going to go next. Keeps your interest the whole time. Just really good, simple fantasy :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill Tillman | 12/22/2013

    " Lots of rabbits being pulled out of hats. More plot twists than a pretzel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nessa | 12/20/2013

    " What next is the only question that went through my head at the end of this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Milena Barber | 12/18/2013

    " Thought it was amazing. I liked how in the end she killed Beleth, but a part of me wanted her to sign the contract and for something to happen that has to do with how she would have to obey her husband in all ways. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole's in Love | 12/7/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paxton | 2/23/2013

    " I enjoyed it and want more of the series, but there were a couple of oddities (like the way the characters thought and the British wording) which made reading this book seem almost difficult for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anndee | 2/14/2013

    " YA. Listened to this one. Entertaining reader. I'll probably try to find the first 2 in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 5/12/2011

    " To me, this one was just meh. I've read the others in the series but couldn't wait to finish this one. I also don't feel inclined to read the last in the series and see how it ends. I remember the others being funnier so I was disappointed to find this one did not follow suit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 elissa | 12/8/2010

    " This one wasn't as good as the first two, as it seemed like a lot of the same things keep happening from book to book, but it was still worth a listen. I'll probably listen to the last one at some point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Narimon | 9/26/2010

    " I think this si a great book. I recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy-adventure type books. Make sure to read the first two in the series before you read this one though. "
