Much better than Faire Wars

This book is what Faire Wars (book 1 in the series) should have been. It is a great story about a parallel universe involving fairies. It has a great twist that is not expected. Better for Pre-teen & teenagers than children. The mundane, irrelevant events of the analog (earthly) world are limited to only those that are related to the story.

an entertaining sequel

This was an overall satisfying listen. I think this book is more promising to people who are familiar with the first book (Faerie Wars); however, even to those new to the series, I think the action in the story and the intrigue of the story are engaging. Also, Gerard Doyle is a great narrator!
