On top of spending most of her time in a bunkerlike safe house and having her dates hijacked by a formidable Fae bodyguard, Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway is in for some more bad news: the Erlking and his pack of murderous minions known as the Wild Hunt have descended upon Avalon. With his homicidal appetite and immortal powers, the Erlking has long been the nightmare of the Fae realm. A fragile treaty with the Faerie Queen, sealed with a mysterious spell, is the one thing that keeps him from hunting unchecked in Avalon, the only place on Earth where humans and Fae live together. Which means Dana’s in trouble, since it’s common knowledge that the Faerie Queen wants her – and her rare Faeriewalker powers – dead. The smoldering, sexy Erlking’s got his sights set on Dana, but does he only seek to kill her, or does he have something much darker in mind?

Dana Hathaway is back! This sequel to 'Glimmerglass' is a must read for those who love all thing faerie. Dana now finds herself stuck in a safehouse deep within the mountain underneath Avalon. Her father is keeping here there for her safety from all those who are after her. She is not only lonely, but is now fearful of the Wild Hunt lead by the dangerous, frightening, and incredibly attractive Erlking.

This book picks up where book one left off. Dana and Ethan are possibly becoming more than just friends, but she is not sure she can trust him. Plus they can never truly be alone with her bodyguard Finn, always 3 steps behind them. Dana has to figure out if Ethan truly cares about her or is just using her somehow for his father's political gain, or for just another notch in his belt.

I enjoyed reading more about Dana's relationship with Ethan. I wasn't sure how I felt about him in the first book, but I grew to like him more in this book, especially once he tried to protect Dana from the Erlking (and spoiler!!!) and found himself now a part of The Hunt and under the Erlking's rule. I love that Dana would do anything for those she loves and she does everything in her power to save Ethan from a lifelong service to the Erlking. She has to make a despicable agreement with The Erlking or risk Ethan's life, never minding if she is risking her own in the process.

The relationship between Dana and her father grows in this book. I like that they are becoming more like a family. However, the relationship with her mother becomes more strained. Kimber is Dana's bestfriend and is always there for her. In the last book I wasn't sure about Kimber either, but have grown to adore her and enjoy reading her little sarcastic remarks.

There are a few things that I didn't care for in the book. I feel that sometimes Ms. Black goes into way too much detail (for me at least). She repeats a lot from the first book, and I know that's only for the people who need a refresher, but it seems like she does it all the way through the book, not only in the first couple of chapters. I also felt that Dana gets a bit too restless and eager to find danger. I just wasn't sure why she felt the need to do that. But, that's just me.

Overall a great sequel to Glimmerglass with new characters, old foes and lots of drama, romance and danger!
