Eugenie Markham is a shaman for hire, paid to bind and banish creatures from the Otherworld. But after her last battle, she’s also become queen of the Thorn Land. It’s hardly an envious life, not with her kingdom in tatters, her love life in chaos, and Eugenie eager to avoid the prophecy about her firstborn destroying mankind. And now young girls are disappearing from the Otherworld, and no one—except Eugenie—seems willing to find out why.
Eugenie has spilled plenty of fey blood in her time, but this enemy is shrewd, subtle, and nursing a very personal grudge. And the men in her life aren't making things any easier. Her boyfriend, Kiyo, is preoccupied with his pregnant ex, and sexy fey king Dorian always poses a dangerous distraction. With or without their help, Eugenie must venture deep into the Otherworld and trust in an unpredictable power she can barely control. Reluctant queen or not, Eugenie has sworn to do her duty—even if it means facing the darkest—and deadliest—side of her nature…
I thought that this book was so much better then the first! I found that in Storm Born I couldn't relate to Eugenie's character, but with this book I found that she was a whole lot more relatable and I found myself really liking her character. I also found myself liking the character of Dorian a lot more aswell, don't get me wrong I really liked him in the first book aswell but I thought that Kiyo was always a better fit for Eugenie but this book proved me wrong. I thought that the main plot is this book was so so good and it was definitley unexpected I never saw it coming.
Overall I thought that this book was a really good read and a great edition to the Dark Swan series.
