    Though we did finally get.. some... answers from book 1 in a way that is keeping the story together.. I'm still not really all on board. This has to do with several factors. Number one the FMC is extremely hostile making it that much harder for her to get her shit together which tended to drag out certain parts and at the same time rushes into things unprepared and with inadequate knowledge creating a kind of whiplash for the reader.

Number 2.. Though our fae prince has done a very reluctant 180.. I still can't help shipping our female with any other character that walks into the story.. the new alliance members.. the summer fae prince... Nina.. just anyone... I was even hoping that she would drop the cold guy and take up with the fiesty spring female warrior. I'm not sure it bodes well for the story, at least for me, when i'm trying to pair the fmc up with anything that has a pulse other than her mate. lastly, I feel like the entire "alliance" she has put herself vulnerable to is a bad freaking idea. She isn't actually trying to make any friends or lasting relationships, shes not trying to learn and fit it, she is just so confused about what she wants other than to stop the human sacrifices. Shes not really trying to become what her new people might need or anything really. Shes just going in guns blazing hoping it works and its irritating me lol. I think I'm going to have to put this series on hold for a bit. Even after all the reveals we have gotten here in the second book I still feel like I'm a couple crayons short of a box here and more than being entertained I'm just getting frustrated with the mess we find ourselves in, not only that but it seems we are on the loosing side of the mess due to lack of preparation and trusting people we knew by all "the feelings" the fmc was getting constantly, we shouldn't trust. May come back to this at a later date.

    The story seemed a bit drawn out in the beginning. Most of the action was at the end.

    I am amazed that this series keeps on getting better and better. Brynn was su h a fierce female and I absolutely love her character. The book was full of action mystery, it was a page turner I couldn’t stop till I finished it all and now I’m so sad to finish this. I’ll have to Wait for the next one to come out, this is going to be torture. Just like the first book, this one also had LOTS of adventure and serious twists and turns.

    Brynn is far from being diplomatic, but she might need to learn some skills at it to survive the challenges ahead of her. She is gathering allies, although are all of them trustworthy? Luckily she has her best friend Nina (human) by her side. Torin is certainly driving her wild, and she is getting her own back on him, I loved the banter and torment they both do to one another.

    Another hit in this series. I could not believe the action, the betrayal and the caring that was displayed in this book. I was glad to read that Brynn has gained some more use of her powers. The back and forth scenes between Torin and Brynn are so comical. They like each other but do not want the other to know how much they care for each other. There is so much intrigue within the courts that I cannot tell who is looking out for Brynn or their own interests. I was so not ready for this book to e Another hit in this series.

    Brynn is such an awesome, strong heroine. I love that she's not letting herself just be turned into a figurehead for the High Court. She's completely out of her element, everything she's known all her life has changed, but she's not letting herself fall apart or be pushed around and I love it! Everyone surrounding Brynn seems to have a hidden agenda, except her friend Nina, who she managed to save from sacrifice, but now she's struggling to keep her safe in her new world.

    So it's quite a few months since I was supposed to review this (aka back in March) but with the whole global pandemic I think it's okay. But when I started to read the book I felt like kicking myself. It was so good! I still live Brynn and Nina's friendship the most but Torin did grow on me in this one. The sequel to the first book has everything you want and need. I honestly think it's better than the first one!

    I loved this one even more than the first! The action has really ramped up. Brynn has started learning to use her powers and we get a chance to see all four elements at work. Many new characters are introduced, leaving Brynn (and us) unsure who she can trust. The relationship between Brynn and Torin is changing, deepening. I’m excited to see how things will develop there. The end left me wanting more and now I’m waiting with bated breath for part three.

    I was suprised at the direction the story went in this book. I found that character development is forming but Brynn has so far not come into her own. During parts of the story I found her to be annoying and rude when she shouldn't be. Yet everyone else around her, their characters have grown. I am looking forward to the next installment.

    She found out she is to be the queen of the high court but it is not eaSy. The winter and summer court want her fead. Even though prince torin is loyal to his fated mate, brynn feels his loyalty lies in the winter court. Fight after fight ensues while she desperately learns her magic to save her life. Man this book is a blockbuster. It just hit the ground running. With non stop action and a compelling story this is one dynamite series. The characters are fierce. I love this series.

    After finding out she’s been lied to her whole life and the the couple that raised her are not actually her biological parents Brynn trusts no one.
