Things kept getting in the way of their plan, Ash is turned into a puppet by the false Iron King and Meghan has to save him with an iron power. Do they ever get the Scepter of Seasons back? Does Ash and Megan get to be together? Does our heroes get to stop the war? You're going to have to read this book to find out.
I love The Iron King, it was awesome, but to me, this book was so much better. More action, more romance and the steaks are higher because not just Ethan is in trouble, but all of the Nevernever. Ash is just perfectly Ash and I love him in this book. The writing is flawless as what I've come to expect from this author and it's so easy to follow.
I know a lot of people don't like reading about fey or fairies very much but this series is just too good not to read. Give it a chance and I know you'll love it... or at least love Ash or Puck, or both. Both is good.
