For 17-year-old actress Kelley Winslow, faeries are just something from childhood stories. Then she meets Sonny Flannery, whose steel-gray eyes mask an equally steely determination to protect her. Sonny guards the Samhain Gate, which connects the mortal realm with the Faerie's enchanted, dangerous Otherworld. Usually kept shut by order of icy King Auberon, the Gate stands open but once a year.
suspenseful, intriguing, exciting
Much has changed since autumn when Kelley Winslow learned she was a Faerie princess, fell in love with changeling guard Sonny Flannery, and saved New York City from a rampaging Faerie war band. Sonny has been relegated by Kelley's father, King Auberon, to the Faerie Realm, where he's hunting down the remaining deadly warriors with blood magick - his own blood. Kelley is stuck in New York, rehearsing her lines for Romeo and Juliet and missing Sonny more with every stage kiss.
That's the lie Kelley Winslow told to protect the boy she loves from a power he doesn't know he possesses. Devastated, Sonny retreats to a haven for Lost Fae that's hidden deep underneath New York City.
Overall story, lovable characters, and Irish men. Lesley Livingston's narration, male voices, and accents were great.
