    "Much better than Faire Wars"

    This book is what Faire Wars (book 1 in the series) should have been. It is a great story about a parallel universe involving fairies. It has a great twist that is not expected. Better for Pre-teen & teenagers than children. The mundane, irrelevant events of the analog (earthly) world are limited to only those that are related to the story.

    "an entertaining sequel"

    This was an overall satisfying listen. I think this book is more promising to people who are familiar with the first book (Faerie Wars); however, even to those new to the series, I think the action in the story and the intrigue of the story are engaging. Also, Gerard Doyle is a great narrator!

    "Great Series!"

    A very good read. Excellent sequel! The demons are back. The prince is up to new and exciting ways of completely messing everything up. And yes, once again everyone is out to get him, but for some completely new reasons and with some excitingly unexpected methods. You've got to read this!

    "Enjoyable"

    While I had not read the previous book, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. There was a lot going on without ever leaving me too much on the edge of my seat.

    I found the resolution to each conflict satisfying. I am looking for more books by this author.

    "Dark and light combined"

    The second installment in the Faerie Wars series. Every bit as good as the first book if not better. Gerard Doyle provides and excellent interpretation. This series will probably appeal to those who like Artemis Fowl as well as Jonathan Stroud's Bartimeous trilogy. A cross-over between our reality and the fearie realm the story proves entertaining for both the kids and the adults in the house.
