    "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.

    On the first day of Laurel's senior year there are two new arrivals. Tamani - the electrifying faerie with whom she shares an undeniable connection - appears, posing as a foreign exchange student. And even more disturbing is another foreign exchange student named Yuki, whom Laurel quickly realises is a faerie, though the new girl doesn't seem to have any idea who or what she really is.

    Tamani looked at her gravely and reached up to tuck her hair behind her ear. He hesitated for an instant, then his hands found the sides of her face, pulling her to him. He didn't kiss her, just held her face close to his, their foreheads resting together, their noses almost touching. She hated how much it felt like good-bye. Laurel now knows the truth: Yuki is a rare winter faerie, the most powerful - and deadly - of all, and Klea plans to use her to help conquer and destroy Avalon.
