Written By: Kellie - Sep• 07•11

Synopsis: Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land’s queen, she’s fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful gentry fear. . .

Who Eugenie can trust is the hardest part. Fairy king Dorian has his own agenda for aiding her search. And Kiyo, her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend, has every reason to betray her along the way. To control the Crown’s ever-consuming powers, Eugenie will have to confront an unimaginable temptation–one that will put her soul and the fate of two worlds in mortal peril. . . -Goodreads

Review: This book was AWESOME and I LOVED IT! I’m not even going to give a super lengthy review because I think you should all just read this awesome series, and this is by far the best book of the three so far! The plot has a little bit of everything, there was some great and unexpected character growth and the pacing was absolutely perfect. (Please forgive my gushtastic review, I almost never do this so I figure I’m allowed) =D I’m not sure I felt this way through the whole book but the ending was just so shocking and well done that I can’t help but love this entire book now.

I’ll be honest though, I don’t always like the main character Eugenie, sometimes I can’t stand her. She makes the same mistakes over and over and is too impulsive considering how much her decisions affect other people. Yet, because of all this she at times seems more real than a lot of other female leads and you know she genuinely cares about all of the people in her life and she’s genuinely doing the best she can.

A lot of you are already Richelle Mead fans because of Vampire Academy, so you know what a fantastic writer she is. Every book in this series is a lot of fun and this is the best of the bunch. The concept is a lot of fun, the characters are fun and not all walking cliches and really… well, just read it already!
