Top Customer Reviews
It is good because all the elements that I’ve loved about this series are still there. The world is still rich in both characters and setting. We get to see plenty of it in this book and is the biggest reason for the rating, along with an interesting main story line.
It is not so good because it seems as though the characters didn’t grow or progress all that much from the previous books. There was no obvious or significant change in Alex’s powers. There is still the three-way drama with her sort of relationships with Falin and Death. The only difference at all doesn’t even take place until the end of the book and even that is apparently just a temporary fix that doesn’t actually solve anything.
On a spoiler note…
While this does resolve the main issue story line, it also doesn’t. It mostly leaves a whole lot of open ended speculation that there is more going on than what we saw here. It also felt pretty anti-climactic that the reader never learns why Glitter didn’t burn out Alex like it did every other user. You can speculate that it is because she is at least part Fae, along with the Winter Queen, but it is never actually addressed. You would think that with her ability to see through glamours, it wouldn’t have affected her the same way and that there should have been a very different affect on the Queen than there was on Alex.
I do really enjoy this series, but I would love it a whole lot more if we could get past the unnecessary relationship flip flopping and move on to something different now. Resolve it one way or another and lets explore Alex’s place within the world of Faerie as that seems to be a much more important issue.
What we've learned: Everyone comes when you call them - maybe not in the way you expect, but even the King of Nightmares shows up. You now glow and surprise! you're part of the ruling class of Fairie. Alex may not want to learn from Daddy Dearest, but she doesn't take the effort to ask anyone else, not even Caleb who has been drawn into her drama. Caleb may be ticked that Holly now has been roped into the drama, but I'm pretty sure he's got a handle on "ignorance of the law does not excuse you" and would help if asked.
The writing is still solid. The story held my attention. I'm not looking for resolution, but I would sure like some momentum rather than yet another court (this time Light) out to get Alex.
In this part of the series, Alex must face that her faeries lineage is catching up to her and she must choose a court to affiliate herself to or fade from existence. With her planeswalker abilities,there are several courts looking to bring her into the fold. Unfortunately, that would mean leaving the mortal realm and everything she sees as part of who she is.
There is also a new strange string of murders that stinks of magic and affords Alex an opportunity to fix some of her many personal problems.
If I had one criticism, it would be the lack of humor in this installation. Previous books had a little more of a light feel where this seems to be all problem-focused. Alex is a great character, don't let her get too bogged (pun intended) down.
