While the fae world is portrayed beautifully, and the secondary fae characters shine ... from the huge Lugh, the wolf-headed Faolchú and his beloved serpent gardener, Nathair, the fox Sionnach and his beloved Queen's herald, Angus, as well as the féileacán Scath and Croi

... but the story goes into melodramatic territory far too many times. Diego's jealousy, Finn's sudden lack of confidence about being worthy of his Diego, the whole reassurance of their love, over and over again. Plus the sudden jump plot about U.S. Government's attack because they think that there are aliens visiting the Earth?? Though that plot gives us Zack (which will appear in book #3 of this series) ... still, it's a too big of a twist, that seems to come out of nowhere.

It's great to see Diego's ability develop. It's great to see Diego and Finn end the story stronger than before. I would join the 3rd book when it is ready to be released. But I definitely hope that the melodrama is not going to be too much like this ...

Mandapanda I started this book but put it aside for a while when it separated the boys for a lot of the story and threatened their relationship. But I will definitely read book 3!

Ami They got reunited again soon, I think around 25% of the story. But there are still a lot of melodrama ahead; so I'm warning you.
