"I don't do patrols, I don't go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life. I'll keep you safe," Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. "Or die trying."
Laurel hasn't seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.
But just as life returns to normal, Laurel realizes that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail.

*****MINOR SPOILER ALERT*****
Another fun installment in this entertaining tween series, but it fell prey to my biggest series pet peeve: the cliff hanger ending.
I feel that every novel in a series should have its own arc, that the plot mysteries that keep you turning pages throughout should, at least in great part, be paid off/answered by the end of the book, yet the larger themes be unresolved or compelling enough to warrant another book.
This book simply ended at the climax, possibly to increase the reader's interest in anticipating and purchasing the next book in the series, which is uber lame.
It was very involved in the love triangle componant to the story, which was okay, but the actual plot moved very little until the end when the book ended abruptly.
If you're into the series, read and enjoy, it's fun, light reading, but be prepared to wait for the next book to find out what's really going on in this one!
I really like this world created by Aprilynne Pike. And I keep thinking about it after I finish the books. My whole family enjoy this series - my daughters, granddaughters and I. Laurel's year of high school with friends, family and fellow fairies passes by too quickly and there is much more going on than just SAT tests.. I'm glad that Tam is a major part of the story. Laurel has to make some decisions and some are made for her. And the reason I only gave the book four stars is because I hate major cliff hangers...
She does so much stupid stuff in this book i havent iven finsh im not even shore i wont to GOD! shes so stupid itz a 0 stars and that sucks cuz i realy liked the seires
