Faedra was enjoying the fact that everything was back to normal, well, as normal as it could get when you had the ability to manipulate energy, were protector of an ancient Fae amulet, and lived with a fairy guardian 24/7. Her dad had even started dating. Yes, all was right again in Faedra's world, or so she thought....

This book was much more enjoyable than the first book. I finally got used to the narrator (not the best in the world) and was able to concentrate on the book. Entertaining, unusual and a quick read. Average fantasy read.
I truly enjoyed watching Faedra discover more about herself and her powers as she goes on a quest to save her dad and is forced to face a few unsavory characters along the way. One rather savory character adds a new dynamic to the story and creates some tension between Faedra and Faen as their love for one another is somewhat tested. I highly recommend Pensy's The Emerald Staff and look forward to the next installment.
The Emerald Staff is like Harry Potter, because Faedra, like Harry, is unaware of her origins and powers until she reaches a certain age, and then the fate of her world depends on her.
My favorite scene is the one in which Etyran holds Faedra's hands above her head and forces her to kiss him!
