Book Synopsis:

When a beautiful, arrogant Unseelie Princess is forced to flee her family castle on her wedding night, she has to embrace the darkness of the shadow court or risk leaving her young brother trapped in the hands of torture by her husband the devious Seelie Prince.

She never expected love to occur in her arranged marriage. As a princess in the Unseelie Court, she grew up understanding that her life was to serve the people. She walked into her arranged marriage to a Seelie Prince understanding that love was not going to happen. What she did not expect was for her Seelie husband trying to kill her thirty minutes into their marriage with poison.

A bloody coup sends her running with her bodyguard, Kieran, on her wedding night. Now she has to stay one step ahead of her murderous husband as she attempts to gather allies, discover the secrets to claim her birthright and get her much needed revenge. Thankfully she has some help in the form of a sexy vampire, Vincent, as she fights to stay one step ahead of the light to stay hidden in the shadows.

My review:

I loved this book but hated that it was a cliffhanger. I hate cliffhangers, and this one ended right when the book was getting good!!!!

There is plenty of violence and action, along with a ton of Fae lore, which I loved. Everything from Celtic mythology, I was in Celtic heaven.

The storyline was great.  I loved Lyssa’s character. When the storyline introduced Vincent, he added sensuality to it. Kieran wasa great example of a Red Cap.

Will, I reread this book? Yes, and I do want to read the next book. I need to find out what happens to Lyssa’s 5-year-old brother and if she does certain things (READ THE BOOK!!!)

Will I recommend this book to family and friends? Yes

Age range? Given the violence in the book, I would have to say teen on up.
