Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth – that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
This book came out in 2010 and it took me this long to read it and I’ll be damned but it was an amazing book. From what I’ve heard, it’s the start of an amazing series. I didn’t have any reason for not reading it up until now, I just hadn’t picked it up. After getting The Eternity Cure for free from Netgalley. I decided that it was very necessary for me to read more from Julie Kagawa.
I’m kind of getting tired of the tried/tired and true YA tropes like love triangles and normal girl that is suddenly very special. Both of those components were in this novel but I swear this was different. I was enthralled at how much I cared about each character. In love triangles I also usually pick a side very quickly and honestly it’s usually the losing side but when I was done with book one I still hadn’t picked who I wanted to be the winner.
The characters were so awesome and I loved and hated most of them all at the same time. This is really great. You’ll see a review for book two up here really soon…maybe tomorrow. 😀
