KIRKUS REVIEW

When last seen in The Faerie Path (February 2007), Anita Palmer had been whisked away from her home in modern-day London to the world of Faerie. There she discovered she was really a faerie princess and just barely escaped a dastardly plot by Lord Drake to trick her into marriage so he could usurp her father, King Oberon. Anita has now returned to London, accompanied by her true love Edric, to search for her missing faerie mother. Reunited with her human parents, with whom she cannot share the truth of her heritage, she feels both at home and out of place. Flashes of her previous lives haunt her, as do glimpses of Lord Drake reaching out to drag her into his world of exile and set free a doom of unknown proportion on all she loves—in both her worlds. When three of her faerie sisters are thrust into London, followed by evil Gray Knights, it becomes clear that she has to take steps not only to find her mother, but to close the seam between the realms. Once closed, which side will she be on? The story picks up nicely where it left off, and moves readily along with plenty of realistic touches that will appeal to the adolescent girls of today. And the cliffhanger ending will leave readers looking eagerly forward for the next volume in the series. (Fiction. 12-15)
