This is the fourth and final book in this fantastic YA series. I LOVED IT!
Ruby Blue is a fantastic character! She loves ice cream, converse shoes and being able to see fairies. Full of angst and sarcasm, she has a wit that kept me sniggering. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching this character grow and develop through the series.
I began reading this book with mixed feelings. I have come to love these characters as friends, and have fallen in love with a few (mainly Brennan and Jeremy), so I was also a little sad that I would not be joining them in any new adventures after this book. However, I was swept away, and completely hooked by this story! I was enchanted with the description of Brennan and Anya's home in Fey, and the magical beings that lived there. There is adventure, action, drama and romance aplenty in this book, with splashes of humour that kept me giggling! Not to mention a prophecy to fulfill. However, there is a shocking twist that had me in tears! I was going "Noooooo! Say it isn't so!". Luckily, it wasn't as bad as I thought, and all's well that ends well! Ruby finds herself gaining more powers and facing a deadly foe, in the form of a white dragon called Helgynn. There is also a surprise near the end that made me virtually melt in my chair! Brennan is SO romantic! I would love to find a Fae Prince of my own one day!
Julie Cassar is one of my favourite authors, and I will read any of her books in the future. Her characters are very lifelike and virtually leap off the page! I also love her fast paced writing style, which seems to flow effortlessly from scene to scene.
I HIGHLY recommend this book (and series) if you love YA romances or fantasy genres. - Lynn Worton
