Thierry Thackeray is having the worst week ever. Her ex is back in town, death omens are camping out on her mother's lawn and her estranged father has gone missing. Then there's the small matter of the High Court requesting her presence in Faerie.
Now the wrong fae has answered her summons, and she's stuck with a not-so-charming prince who offers to fix all her problems . . . for a price. She can't afford to tell him no, but with her luck, she might not survive saying yes.
Once again, I felt disoriented when I began listening. I immediately felt like I missed something. It turns out a year has passed. While Thierry has been successful at her job, things with Shaw didn’t work out.
When she takes on a bounty, things turn weird and that is just the first sign that things aren’t going her way. Shaw is back in town, her Dad is missing and death omens are hanging out on her human mother’s front lawn.
I liked this new confident heroine. A year as Marshall has done Thierry good, but that doesn’t mean she can handle the High Court. Rook, a new character, agrees to escort her. With her father missing, Faerie is in chaos and they want Thierry’s help.
Fae politics and danger await her. I have said before that the Fae are truly scary and my opinion hasn’t changed. I am curious about Rook and his intentions. Unlike the first book, she doesn’t have Shaw by her side and needs to make quick decisions on her own in a stressful, fast moving environment. The story was fast-paced with non-stop action that kept me listening.
Mooreghan Martin narrates and captures our heroine while giving voice to secondary characters. I easily bumped the sped to 1.5x once I got comfortable.
Fans of urban fantasy, the FAE and action-packed adventures will want to check out the Black Dog series.
