Julie Kagawa has really hit the nail with this one, I think. They way she portrays the fey; strange, devious, spiteful, yet quite like humans as well, is simply amazing.
At the start of the book, Meghan, our half-human, half-fey daughter of Oberon, the king of the Seelie, is imprisoned in the Unseelie court. She might be in there for life, and, whats worse, Ash (the Winter prince that she fell in love with) seems to have forgotten her. And then, when she finally sees him, seems to have rejected her.
And, as if that wasn't bad enough, soon after the Scepter of the Seasons is passed from Summer to Winter, the Scepter is stolen, the eldest prince of the Winter Court is dead, and Summer (most particularly Meghan) is blamed. She must go to find it.
But how can she do it, with the whole of Winter searching for her and Ash (who revealed that he did, in fact, still love her), the whole of Summer out looking for her, and all the Iron Fey after her as well? Oh, and to make it worse, Winter has declared war on the Summer, and once again, it goes down to Meghan to try and stop it all.
Is it too much for her to handle?
This book is simply amazing, and perfect for anyone who likes supernatural creatures, lovers who just can't sort it out and/or spiteful fey who are tearing at each other for power.
