Emma and Eadric are humans again and must help Grassina to get her true love back. Haywood was turned into an otter years before by Grassina's mother. She didn't think he wasa suitable suitor for her daughter so thought this was the best way to get rid of him. She made the recipe for the cure deliberately difficult so he wouldn't be able to turn back. But now Grassina has found him again she is determined not to let him go. So with Emma and Eadric's help they set off to find four magical items needed to turn him back.
This book seemed slightly slower than the first, it was more detailed and deeper explained. There was a lot of back story involving the curse and Grassina's mother which was quite detailed and slowed the pace of the story quite a bit.
Eadric seems to do nothing but eat and whine in this one. But Emma goes from strength to strength. I liked her a lot more in this book. There was a lot of action scenes and exciting twists but they were in between the slower parts so the book just seemed to drag a little bit.
However saying that it is only 292 pages so it still didn't take me that long and overall the plot line was good. I love the devotion between Haywood and Grassina, and the twist at the end was very good.
Overall it is still a good book and worth a read, it's just a bit slow in places. You may find yourself skimming bits.
