5.0 out of 5 stars A series worthy of Hollywood...2nd installment twice as good, November 16, 2009
This review is from: Child of Darkness (Lightworld/Darkworld Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
as the first book - and the first book was good. This trilogy has everything any fantasy and romance lover could want. The book picks up 20 years after the end of the first book in which a prophecy was revealed. A Faerie queen, not completely fae, will free the underworld faeries and allow them to live in the Upworld again. They, along with elves, dragons, trolls and any number of creatures, had been banned to the underworld by humans after a great conflict. To be free in the Upworld again is their greatest wish of all.

Ayla (Queen of the Fairies) and Malachai (a fallen Death Angel and unofficial Royal Consort) have a beautiful but very spoiled 20 year old daughter (Cerridwen). To keep her safe from all (as ordered by a Goddess), she was never told Malachai is her father and her wings bound as they look just like his. She abhors him and his apparent humanity. She hates her mother for having him there and she hates the court. The problem arises when the same Goddess had told Ayla that it is her very daughter that will save the Faeries and Ayla had been charged to keep Cerridwen safe at all costs.

In her rebellion, Cerridwen has a secret boyfriend who just happens to be the Faeries' greatest enemy - an elf. She is sure he loves her and runs away for good this time. Of course, trouble looms and the epic story unfolds.

The characters in this book are well developed and the plot is tight with unexpected twists. There is a lot of action packed in these pages. Treason reigns supreme. A mother despairs while trying to raise a difficult child. Love and loyalty are tested to the limits and the end of all the Fae loom ahead. There is death as well. With the narrative style of writing, Ms. Armintrout, in my opinion, treats the death of some of the characters the best I have seen in a very long time.

I can't wait to read the conclusion of the series. And I repeat, Hollywood would do well to pay attention to this trilogy.
