Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic energy more powerful than they could have imagined. Quietly amassing their strength for centuries, the Vampiric Fae - led by the merciless Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court - are determined to enslave the world. Only one witch stands in her way....
Cicely Waters had always thought she was simply one of the magic-born - a witch who can control the wind - but when she returned home to New Forest, Washington, she discovered she's also one of the shifting Fae. Now she must perfect her gift. For Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court, has captured Grieve, the Fae prince who holds Cicely's heart. To save both her beloved Grieve and her friend Kaylin - whose demon is waking - Cicely must journey into the heart of the Indigo Court. But even as Cicely gathers strength, old alliances are breaking faith. And new allies, like the hedonistic vampire Lannan Altos, promise to take Cicely down a far darker path than she's ever travelled before.
Also listen to the first book, Night Myst.

This is a great book. It picks up right where the first book, Night Myst, left off. Cecily and her friends continue to fight the good fight. They lose allies and gain others. The characters grow and develop for better or worse. The one thing I did not like is that Cecily is always the sacrificial lamb. I know that is part of her character's purpose, I only wish all of the betrayals and humiliations did not have to happen to her. It should be spread out a little more. This is a great book and I can't wait to read the next one.
Cicely Waters, the witch who can control the wind continues both her journey and education into the depths of the Indigo Court. The pact she made with Lannan of the Indigo Court continues to vex her, but she has no choice and must uphold her end of the bargain if she wants to protect her friends and family. A plan was put in place to hex the Indigo Court with a virus to make them vulnerable to the sun just as the vampires were, thus putting them on an equal playing field, but the plan backfired and made the Indigo Court only more dangerous. Her close friend Kaylin is now in trouble and it is once again up to Cicely to put her life on the line to save him. So Cicely and friends head off to the midst of Indigo Court territory to find the Court of Dreams portal and the lair of the Bat People to secure a cure for Kaylin. Cicely’s memory continues to solidify revealing more of her childhood, parentage, even glimpses into past lives. As Cicely’s memory grows, so does her powers and the revelation of who she truly is. The war with Indigo Court escalates little by little and as the Queen of Rivers and Rushes said, “We are in this for the long haul.” I look forward to the next book, Night Seeker.
Great story idea that is and epic FAIL. The story has so much potential but the author just couldn't pull if off. The story is so boring and just drags on and on while getting no where. I love the authors Otherworld series but this one just is sad.
