This is a world I could visit again and again. From the first novel, Shadow Kin, I have been held spellbound by this author's imagination. This urban fantasy is about a world where Beasts, Blood Drinkers, and the Fae attempt to coexist with humans. Thanks to a treaty written by the Queen of Fairies the four species must find a balance or perish. Humans are not merely standing back and being controlled by their more powerful neighbors, but fighting for their rights. Humans can be powerful magi, witches, or even strong willed knights.
In this second book in this series a popular Templar Knight named Guy DuCaine is tasked with teaming with a half-fae spy to uncover human deaths. The spy is not just any half-fae woman, but one who is controlled by her powerful Fae Noble Father. He sends her on a mission of deceit and though she is forming connections to Guy; she's forced to betray him in the worst of ways.
If you haven't read the first one, you are more than missing out, but if you haven't read this one yet... what are you waiting for? One of the best new series out there; The Half-Light City novels are kickass and the characters are those you can relate to.
