Another solid book in this great series!
I was dying to know how the twist ending in the last book would pan out, so I was super excited for this one. And I’m happy to say I ended up enjoying it even more than the last! There was plenty of action and mystery to keep me wanting more until it finished, plus it also had some great humor thrown in, especially in one scene that had me laughing out loud. *SPOILER ALERT (only if you haven’t read A Faerie’s Secret)* I swear I’d been thinking since Book 4 ended about how awkward it was that both Violet and Calla dated the same guy, so I was dying when the three of them finally realized it. And of course Ryn had the most hilarious commentary on it. *END SPOILER ALERT*
I also finally warmed up to Calla more. It was a struggle adjusting to her POV after three books with Violet, but I found her more likeable and relatable this time. She still made some bad decisions from time to time, but she still seemed more mature. And I already liked Chase from the last book, so he was also great, playing the role of tortured hero that I love, because really, he’s about as tortured as a hero could possibly get.
Ryn though—I know this book wasn’t supposed to be about Ryn, but somehow he always steals the show for me. Can I just say he is going to make such an amazing father?! I’ve never said that about a character before, but the way he is with Calla, so protective and sensible when he needs to be but also so supportive and funny and understanding with the way he doesn’t want her to grow up but still lets her… Anyone who can be that great of a big brother will be a perfect father.
Anyway, back on topic, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next!
