synopsis header
Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.

Worse, Meghan’s own fey powers have been cut off. She’s stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can’t help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.” (Goodreads)

I read the first book in this series like in September/October of last year. It was fine but not great. I still decided to try and continue the series because sometimes they get better. In this case, I just found myself bored.

One of my complaints about the first book was the quick romance between two of the characters. It continued in this one along with betrayal and then a break-up? But honestly, I didn’t think they were that close, ha. Honestly, I just became real confused by their relationship.

The plot hardly grasped me and I found myself just very uninterested in picking it up. I can at least say I tried! I read the first book, a novella, and this one. Now, it’s time to part ways with this series.

Maybe it’s just this author, I don’t know. I have tried two of her series and they just aren’t for me. Oh well, it is what it is.
