Just when her new life as a TouchStone – a mortal bound to help OtherFolk cross between Faery and human worlds – seems to be settling down, Abby Sinclair is left in charge when the Protectorate, Moira, leaves for the Faery Court. And when the Protectorate’s away…let’s just say things spiral out of control when a spell on Abby backfires and the Faery Queen declares the Doors between their worlds officially closed.The results are disastrous for both sides: OtherFolk trapped in the mortal world are beginning to fade, while Faerie is on the brink of war with the daemons of Hell. Along with her brooding eleven prince Talivar and sexy incubus Brystion, Abby ventures to the CrossRoads in an attempt to override the Queen’s magic. But nothing in this beautiful, dangerous realm will compare to the discoveries she’s making about her past, her destiny, and what she will sacrifice for those she loves.
Allison Pang does not disappoint with book two in the Abby Sinclair series. It has just as much fun, snark, magic and adventure as the first book. The writing is fantastic and the characters are some of the best I have read in a while. I am such a huge fan of Abby. She is so kick ass!
Abby always seems to find herself in the thick of the trouble.I think this is because she is so strong that she is the only one around that can deal with these problems. She is so unique, and I just love how fleshed out she is. She is so three dimensional. I feel like I really know her.
My only complaint in this book is that there was just not enough Ion. I always want more of him. He was moping around for a lot of the book and I just wanted to yell at him to “Snap out of it and do something!” Taliver was charming too. I didn’t want to like him, but he quickly won me over. He is really sweet and of course he likes Abby so much. I feel like he is a really genuine character. But he is just not Ion to me. And he can’t help that my heart is already on team Ion.
I liked seeing into the land of the fey. I find them fascinating so I always like to read about different authors takes on the creatures. Allison’s are really interesting. (As are all her depictions of creatures) I liked the storyline of this one. Although I must say the nightmare storyline from the first book is still my favorite. But this story was a great continuation of the series. and hello! how awesome is Phin??
I am loving this series so much. The writing is great, the characters are amazing and the plot is addictive. I can’t wait to read book 3!!
