HE’S TRYING TO RECLAIM THE PAST

To keep the balance between good and evil at the court of Annwyn, Prince Felan ap Gwyn has two weeks to marry and take the crown. But he wants more than just power—he wants love; a love he once had but was too stubborn to hold on to.

SHE’S STRUGGLING TO FACE THE FUTURE

It took years for Jacqueline Ara to put her life back together after Felan abandoned her. She’s moved on, even if her heart still burns for him. But with war in Annwyn looming and death bleeding into the mortal world, Felan and Jacquie will need to heal old wounds and rekindle the passion that once welled between them…or face losing everything.

Kathie's Review:

First, I loved this cover. Next, the blurb sounded fascinating. I just wish I had liked it more. This is book three in a six book Court of Annwyn Series (4, 5, and 6 to come out in 2015). The repetition of back story and why their feelings weren't valid or worthy began to wear on me quite quickly. Once again, I begin to wonder if the author is just trying to pad their word count.

The fairy things were fascinating. But it felt like the author was changing her rules as she went along. Or maybe I just didn't understand them. Felan had a son, but it didn't count? Also, both Felan and Jacquie waffled so much, they could have opened their own Waffle House. Does she love him? Does he really love her? Should they come? Should they go? It was rather like watching tennis.

What did I like, besides the cover? I can see a lot of promise in this world Ms. Husk has created. There were glimmers of brilliance and some truly interesting characters. I'd read another by this author.

Thank you, NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca, for the opportunity to read this book.
