As war escalates in the Otherworld, Queen Victoria’s youngest son, Prince Leopold, is attacked.

My Review: 5/5 Stars
This was a fantastic sequel to the Faerie Ring! First of all, I want to thank the lovely Jean BookNerd and Kiki Hamilton for allowing me to be apart of this wonderful blog tour! I had always fancied these amazing covers! I wanted to read these books last year and was so excited when Jean asked me to be in the tour for The Torn Wing and said of us getting the ARC. Thank you ladies so much!
Now on with the review. This book picked up where we left off from the Faerie Ring. Tiki returned the ring and was hoping her problems were over. But that was not the case. It seems Tiki and Reiker have a whole new slew of problems under their belts. Including some shocking revelations. Geez, poor Tiki can't seem to get a break. In this book we find our beloved heroine facing a war. She must find a way to keep her family safe from danger and in doing so, she has to leave Clara, Toots, Shamus and Fiona behind to discover who she is and what it is Larkin needs her to do. But not without the support of our sexy Reiker. I gotta say, I'm quite taken to this fellow. He is such a selfless swoony guy that just really tugs on my heart, the way he is always willing to do anything for Tiki. I really hope we see more romance brewing in the next book. Like ALOT more between them. I need more romance!! But I know right now there is more to worry about than them romancing at the moment. Maybe once the war is over, we can see them happily have an HEA? I hope. Anyway, I loved Clara and Toots and I'm a big fan of Fiona. She's a great friend to Tiki. I don't trust Larkin and Shamus is great too. All of this stuff we find out about Larkin and Tiki is just nuts-jawdropping revelations. But the ending was a perfect cliffhanger. It left me saying...."That's it? Am I missing a page? Nooooo" and it's always good when that happens. I really want the next book now!
The descriptions....wow KIKI you are very good at descriptive writing. I was amazed by the facts and different places you included in this book. It made me want to take a trip to London and visit just as you mentioned in the beginning of the book. It was all so fascinating to me. I also loved the Gaelic language. I have to admit I had to resort back to the definitions at times, but it was still awesome. Great job though. I really felt like I was there, seeing everything in person along with the characters. I wish I was. I love these characters, this book was amazing! I highly recommend this series! You won't be disappointed! Easy FIVE stars from me.
Below here is my DREAM CAST, it might not be accurate and you may disagree but this is just MY dream cast. So you don't have to agree. So give me your thoughts...I'd love to hear them!
