    2. If I were to describe this book in one word it would be "tense". Through most of the book not much actually happens, but a lot of things are set up, and unlike the previous books in the series this one really doesn't stand alone. It's all setup, like the first part of a TV two-parter. I'm no longer worried that characters I like will die, since there aren't really any left that I care about as individuals, but the whole situation feels like things could go very badly wrong very easily.I'm somewh [...]

    3. This book wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. Indeed, there is a lot of interesting imagination invested into this novel. I likely shouldn't have started reading her The Fey books at #6, but I thought it was book one of a series. Knowing the back story isn't vital, but probably would have helped me be more patient in the beginning. However, I doubt I'll run out to grab the next one.

    4. I read this a few years back, and I'm just now realizing it wasn't a standalone or the first book in the series???? Wha-?! No wonder nothing made much sense I guess I'll have to re-read.

    5. The Black Queen is moderating the FeyBut will the Fey stand for that? Particularly Fey leaders or the past?Rusch does a great job of moving the story forward with surprises and unexpected direction. She continues to fill in the magic system which gets more and more detailed as it goes.All this while carrying on the under story of magic verses religion and along with the under story of prejudice and love. Minimal to no violence in this volume.

    6. Excelent fantasy book. Its story has all aspects that I love in fantasy and combines them to one very compelling story.Books sets after Kathryns The Fey series, but it you don't need to read it to get in this book (as haven't I get into this book easilly). Books metions happenings in Fey series books and so you probably get deeper experince if you have read it, but all reference are historical, so they work to make world more wholesome thing, but aren't that important for the plot, because all c [...]

    7. I did enjoy this book. The world that Rusch created was wonderful. There was too much going on sometimes. Those who are fantasy lovers will like itn't wait to read book #2 and see what happens to all the characters
