A year is a long time to wait for a continuation of a story and sometimes I find myself having to re-read the previous book to get myself back in the world. I didn't have to do that with this book and that was a plus for me. While this is a continuation of the first book, The Prince, it didn't feel as if I forgot anything and the story kind of jumps right back into it.

Caden is now King of the Summer Fae and with that comes certain duties he has to withhold for his people. Brighton thought at one point they were friends, more than friends until he cut her off so she continues on in her quest to find the Fae responsible for killing her mother and nearly killing her.
Everyone seems to forget that Bri is a member of the order and when she is outed for hunting, everyone strongly encourages her to stop. Bri is angry that one one believes she is strong enough to kill an Ancient, including the King and when he drops a bomb on her about part of his duties, she is more determined than ever to prove everyone wrong. But when Bri's life is put in peril she realizes just how strong she is and how wrong she was.
Although this book is a novella it doesn't read like one and I guess that has more to do with there being more to the story. There was so much feeling in the scenes with Brighton and the King it was pouring off the pages. And man, the sexy times were REALLY sexy!
The story doesn't have a cliffhanger per-say, but it does leave you wanting more, like NOW!

Great job once again Jennifer, but also boo because now I have to wait a whole year! :-)
