Aislinn is thrown into a world she knows about, but wishes she didn't. There isn't a lot of big downs in this book, but the character development is pretty good. Some characters give you warm fuzzies while others are easy to be afraid of. The Winter Queen is one of the scary ones. She is so full of hate it's insane. I do love how this book has such strong female characters. Even in moments of weakness, both Ash and Donia pull through. The male characters' actions were mostly decided depending on how Ash acted. I loved Seth! He is loyal and patient. He never pushes Ash and lets her decide things for herself. The love aspect was refreshing. You go in expecting insta-love and love triangles, but you get something completely different. I won't go into the plot because I don't want to give anything away, but I really enjoyed this book about faeries. It was a different spin from most of what's out there. Although I do have a few questions regarding Aislinn.
