I received an earc as part of the ARC team and hunted typos for the author in exchange for an honest review.
As you may remember, I reviewed book one late last year and enjoyed it very much. I think that anyone looking for more of this story will be incredibly happy with this second installment. Fae World picks up right where we left off, which allows us to learn more about the fae and mages. Be ready for some steamy scenes that are NSFW if you’re trying to read it on your work computer (during breaks, of course!).
I liked the way in which the author was able to convey character growth while adding new characters to the narrative. It didn’t feel cluttered at all. We also get a fun competition aspect in the form of a medieval tournament. And a dark unicorn!! I hope he comes back in the third book because he’s probably my favorite side character right now.
It’s a good thing that book three is slated for a May release (I believe) because even though we answer many of my questions, a whole new area has caught my curiosity and I’m ready for more!
I always thought if I had magical powers, life would be cake.
My fated mate is the enemy of my kind, I have days to figure out how to keep him from literally going up in smoke, and at any moment one of my magic’s surges will shock my heart and strike me down.
If I don’t learn how to control my mage abilities pronto, I’m dead. I thought that portalling to hang with other mages would solve things, and I’d find some rad crone-like chick to help me train all epic style. But it seems I’ve landed myself, my best friend, and my doomed fated mate in a hidden kingdom where my kind are enslaved for eternity. Not awesome.
This is not the training I was hoping for. And with every day we’re away from the cursed castle, Lucus and his brothers weaken further. If I don’t get us the heck out of this super creepy Scottish fae kingdom, all of us—the 16th century guys and us modern gals—are history.
Grab the second book in the Yew Queen series today for a steamy read that’s perfect for fans of CN Crawford, Linsey Hall, and Laura Thalassa!
If you like vampires, fae, fated mates, enemies to lovers, shifters, werewolves, and more, you’ll love this series.
