Synopsis:Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth – that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

My Ratings: 4.5/5 Stars!!!
My Thoughts: I picked this book up because i wanted something new and I was in a major book slump. I have had this series on my TBR since it came out and just kept putting it off because I am not much of a Fae person, well at least i didn’t think I was. I went into this book with no expectations, the beginning was slow and almost made me put it down but right when Meghan goes to Never Never it takes off. I love the world Ms.Kagawa creates in this book, all the different faes and the winter and summer court. She makes it all sound so magical and at the same time believable, like you can pack up and go there. You have some great, strong characters; of course the main one Meghan Chase, who is half summer fae and human. Then there is Puck who was suppose to watch out for her and protect her, he’s all fae. Then there is the winter Prince Ash, who is so dreamy and cold. And my favorite character of all Grimalkin, who is a Cait Sith which really means magical cat and i want him! When reading this you really embark on a magical journey to get back Meghans half brother who is 5 and was stolen by someone in Never Never. What all this really means is just read the book and find out how amazing it really is!
