The game is neverending in the faerie realm. It must be played constantly, and death is just the beginning of defeat.
Lily Boyd is determined to be more than a pawn in this faerie game. With the Wild Horn in her possession, she holds the key to the Wild Hunt, an unstoppable force neither human nor fay can control. The Wild Hunt has the power to unbalance the Courts in the faerie realm. It’s the perfect bargaining chip for Lily to save her grandmother, but she must play the game wisely if she hopes to succeed. On one side, she has a deal with Cadowain, a Seelie knight who vowed to help Lily in her quest. On the other side, she is at the mercy of Troy, a trickster Kelpie from the Unseelie Court who can command her at will using her True Name.
Whatever path she chooses, Lily must walk a fine line, keeping her head, wit, and words about her as she formulates a plan to find the Faerie Doctor before it’s too late. She’s playing for the win now, and to achieve that, she must live up to her new name . . . the Herald of the Wild Hunt.
(Blurb from Goodreads)
Another 5 star read from Ron C. Nieto. How amazing is it that I just randomly came across book one in the Faerie Sworn series for free, read it, and loved it! I love when that happens! You can read my review of book 1 here.
I actually enjoyed this book even more than book one!
One of my favorite things about this book, was that I didn’t always agree with Lily’s decisions. I know, that may seem a bit silly, but when you agree with everything the character does it just makes the book totally boring. Which was NOT the case in The Wild Curse!
Also, I’m not a fan of insta love or books with characters that immediately fall for each other. I’m not going to say more on the subject for those of you that may read this book, but let me just say it’s one more reason this series rocks.
Book three, and the final book in the series just came out yesterday, so excuse me while I go read.
