Blurb from Goodreads:
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 Review:
The story was a little slow going in the beginning. I found myself slogging through Part I. Fortunately things got better when all the actions started. Okay. I'm admitting it. Mostly when Ash made his appearance. Grim and Puck are funny characters. They were the antidepressant pills in the story.

The story has a depressing and dark atmosphere. Not much romance. Julie gave very brief but boy oh boy, very tension filled chemistry between Meghan and Ash. She really knows how to make us go "AHHHHH..I want moreee!!!!"

All in all, a pretty good read if you prefer action to romance.
