@Gravy where are you in the book? I started chapter ten.

May is becoming one of my favorite characters.

Oh wow, this book didn't stick with me as much as the others. It's almost like it's new to me. Interesting.


I just ran out of the ball because I smelled acid and oleander...

You will have a plenty of action now...

I am halfway through and enjoy it. I like that May has a female partner.

What do you think about the Qween making Toby a countess?

Ok, I finished the book and loved it!!!!!!! I think that so far it is the best book of the series

This book is darker, the stakes are higher for poor Tobi, and there are some heartbreaking moments here. I love this Fae world! Besides May, I also liked Danny, the Taxi driver, and his unusual pets.

How can Tobi fall for the bland Connor when she has the hot Tybalt in tow??

I liked that each book builds on the previous one, and while some questions are answered, even more are raised.

I loved that we learned more about Toby’s mother Amandine, and that the book gives us more glimpse into Toby's nature and past.

The Queen of the Mists, Oleander, and Rayseline are trully evil! The plot against Tobi has me on edge.

The book had too little of the Luidaeg, and I wish Tybalt would get more scenes!

:lol:

I agree with this 100%!


Conner just isn't right for her. He's safe, and she just can't take the safe path.


I read a little more, but not much. :gaah:
I'm not sure why. It's odd. *sigh*

Not a lot, sadly, though I figured out why!

My long term slump has combined with my usual seasonal slump to create a completely new MONSTER SLUMP! *maniacal laughter* :lol:



Anyway, I have read more. I've just reported to Sylvester and almost been arrested.


Now that I'm passed Lily's death ( :cry: ) my reading has picked up a bit, so it hopefully won't be too much longer. :)

No problem. I just wanted to know before I started another book. :)
