Publisher's Summary

Two fae princes fighting for the Summer crown. A mortal lured into Faerie and caught in their web. The battle that changes everything. 

After her mother's suicide, Scarlett's grief consumes her. When a beautiful, otherworldly stranger offers her a release from her pain, it's too tempting an opportunity to resist. She's lured into Faerie and sucked into a royal battle as two fae brothers prepare for the Battle of Heirs where the winner earns the right to the throne. 

Human emotion fuels fae power and Scarlett's is the most potent Cade has ever tasted. He's certain she is the key to defeating his brother Raith. But Raith has surprises of his own, and Scarlett fits perfectly into his devious plan. 

Scarlett must decide how far she's willing to go to avoid her guilt and heartache. As she is pulled further into the realm of magic and power, she discovers a dangerous secret that could change her fate forever. 

Will Scarlett find a way to cope with her sorrow and untangle herself from the two princes? 

Or will they devour her completely?

A good story of the fae and two brothers

I really enjoyed that the POV was from all three the Princes and the mortal girl. I have already purchased the next two in the series.

PRISONER OF DARKNESS IS THE SECOND BOOK IN THIS SERIES
However in the summary it states book 1 of the series but once downloaded you'll see on the cover art its book two of the Whims of fae series. To find all the books out this far click under titles after you click the authors name and you'll find all the titles in this series that are recorded;)

I needed it to help me sleep. it worked

basically I'm a stressed out college student that can't sleep.
so I thought to myself why don't I get a cliche YA fantasy book and see if that'll do the trick. this thing is better than white noise. better than melatonin. better than chamomile tea. technically I've listened to it three times, but I haven't heard past the first chapter. so approximately 16 minutes to fall asleep as opposed to the typical 2.5hrs. I call that a win. I can't say much for the plot or the characters. but by golly it's awesome. I wish I'd have thought of this sooner.

book hangover cure

My review of Two Princess of Summer by Nissa Leder

If you are a fan of Fae, go ahead and pick this one up. It will not wow you like the world that Sarah J. Maas has painted for us but it will help you get through your Rhysand hangover. This is book 1 in a 6 book series so there is still time for Nissa to do a bit more in depth character building. Plus the series is free for Kindle Unlimited and the first one even has audible whispersync so yay! Free audiobook.

It's a tale as old as Kane and Abel. Sibling rivalry at its finest. In the Fae realm there are multiple courts. Winter, Autumn, Spring and Summer. On the human lands there are 2 courts that do not abide by the same laws as the Faere realms... the Seelie and Unseelie courts. This is pretty standard in all Fae Folklore. As is that most high fae possess unique powers.

In this novel, 2 half brothers must battle each other for their ailing fathers throne. 1 gains power by feeding off the emotions of humans. Sadness and grief seem to be the biggest power rush for him. That's where Scarlett (Our main character) comes in. She is grieving after losing her mother to suicide. Her grief and sadness gives the Prince an advantage over his brother. It also gives Scarlett the opportunity to forget her sorrows for when he drains her pain away, she forgets to be sad.

Prince #2 draws his power from nature but can't help being drawn to Scarlett. He tells himself that he does it to get back at his brother but I'm sure we all know where this is going.

Fear not though! There is a twist that will have you running for book 2. The high King of the Unseelie Court makes an appearance and shows Scarlett things about herself that she was already starting to question and will be a total game changer.

I loved this book. It was predictable but not in an obvious way. I love losing myself into the world of the Fae and this book also gave me total Red Queen (Mare Barrow) vibes as well.
