The seasons are out of whack throughout the land: clouds cover the sky, too much rain falls, crops cannot thrive, and the people are going hungry. When the King receives word from the Fairy Queen that things are not right with them, either, and she wishes to meet with his representatives at Midsummer, Taisin and Kaede, students at the Sage Academy, are selected to accompany Prince Con on the long, dangerous journey north. Each girl wonders whether she is equipped to handle the challenges -- and her growing attraction to the other.The Good: This book is printed in a font I really loved looking at, which helped get me to the end. And to be fair, much of the writing is really beautiful, with the occasional deep insight and heartfelt moment.
