I was blown away with this book! After making myself finish the first one, "The Iron King", this one just surpassed all my expectations. It took me a whole book to adjust to the whole strange faery world which drove me crazy at first. I haven't been too tolerant of fearies my whole life, but since I heard so many rave reviews of this series I forced myself not to freak out with the sick, slimmy, gross creatures. I overcame my fears and absolutely enjoyed this book. I cannot really say anything about this book without giving it all away. So, just trust me when I say that it gets better and better. Can't wait to start The Iron Queen.
