Review by Amber I

Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land’s queen, she’s fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful gentry fear…

Who Eugenie can trust is the hardest part. Fairy king Dorian has his own agenda for aiding her search. And Kiyo, her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend, has every reason to betray her along the way. To control the Crown’s ever-consuming powers, Eugenie will have to confront an unimaginable temptation--one that will put her soul and the fate of two worlds in mortal peril.

My Thoughts

Another awesome book. I love this series. 

The beginning was awesome. A lot of nice and hot moments with Dorian. I am a total Dorian fan. Seriously the beginning of the book we see a lot of Dorian 

Eugenie is getting pretty kick ass. She seems to be one of the strongest with magic out there. She isn't giving up on the war but she isn't happy about it. She doesn't want all this death. Then she still has human problems to worry about like work and paying bills. Her life seems way to exhausting for any one person to go through. 

This series has a nice mix of magic, action and romance. Its a neat change from a lot of other series. 

The world Richelle has made here is awesome. If you haven't tried this series yet please do. All Richelle Mead's books are amazing. 

Mild Spoilerish Ranting. You've been WARNED

Okay I knew we had to have some kind of love triangle with Kiyo and Dorian. And you knew exactly when it was going to happen. And I hated it!! I mean the girl didn't even take a day break before jumping for one guy to another. And I know Dorian was wrong but he wasn't totally wrong. It just drove me crazy how fast she moved from one to another. I have another issue I want to discuss but that is way to spoilerish so I will not.
