Book Two in The Golden Book of Faerie
Sequel to the critically-acclaimed The Hunter's Moon
This second book in a series "shimmering with magic, myth, and romance" (Booklist), follows sixteen-year-old Laurel as she tries to understand the cause of her twin sister's mysterious death. Honor believed in Faerie, a parallel land of mischievous immortals. Laurel doesn't. That is, until the fairies come and ask her to take up her sister's failed quest to find the Summer King, a lord who can light the midsummer fire that keeps the two worlds, human and Faerie, cleaved. Laurel must decide to help those whose cause killed her sister, and, in the process, come to believe that there is still magic-and love-in the world.To see the review for this book on Twisted Kingdom, click here
Lush descriptions of Ireland and Celtic lore make this a satisfying read for travelers to other lands, real and mythic.
This is the second time I read this author. I read her previously year when I read the first installment in this series. You can read the review by clicking here.
