In the Faerie realm, Noli Braddock's relationship with her best friend V has grown into something more. But V's mother, Faerie Queen Tiana, has ruled that they are forbidden to see each other. Returning to the mortal realm, Noli joins the crew of her brother's air-pirate ship, the Vixen's Revenge. There she discovers that her brother has hired the scallywag Faerie huntsman, Kevighn Silver. While serving as shipmates, Kevighn and Noli learn that the Earth Court King plans to find a forbidden artifact--one that will bring destruction to everyone Noli loves.
While I had enjoyed the first book pretty well this one missed some of the mystery and excitement that made the first book so thrilling. Some of the character's reactions seemed too calm. really? Your slightly evil mum just told you to break up with your girlfriend and go on this crazy mission and leave your girl behind unprotected? And you just go with it with barely a sentence or two to convey your regret? Hmmmm. That was the most major one. Also another character seemed to be dealing with his love's death WAY to easily. It's brought up once and he says it's this facade or moaning in bed but it somehow just doesn't click. The middle of the book wasn't too bad, but the beginning and end just seemed really off. There were some interesting parts and fun scenes though. It just seemed choppy and conflicting. Like the plot really needed work but instead some action and a slightly random character were thrown in to add tension and excitement. Like really.
Overall, it's okay but definitely not as good as the first. There were some major and minor things I really felt should be improved (the plot as a whole was okay...just a little too outlandish. And the characters had some flaws here and there so...) that annoyed me. I'll read the next book but I'm really hoping I won't be disappointed as I was with this one.
(Also sorry this was a little late going up, apologies to everyone!!)
Sara Bennett happens to be a slightly crazy girl. A slightly nerdy girl. A slightly strange girl who likes being that way. A slightly obsessed girl when it comes to things she loves. A girl who cries when reading books. A girl who desperately wants her own personal library. A girl who is a total bookworm. A girl who would rather read than watch reality tv. A girl who wants to be an author someday. A girl who loves her Savior. And a girl who just loves to read.
