After escaping with Elizabeth to the human realm, Coal is accused of kidnapping and spends six months in a juvenile detention center. When he gets released he is determined to find his way back to the fey realm. On his quest to return home, he learns the heartbreaking truth: nothing he was told about his past is true, and everything he thought about himself is completely wrong. But in order to discover the truth, he'll have to make a deal with a government agent hell-bent on prosecuting Chalcedony for abducting Elizabeth. A deal that could set off a war between the worlds.

Love the series! Can't wait for Jade!
First I have to say, I'm in love with this cover! The red eyes, the dark skin, the colors! I really like this theme for this series of books. It matches it perfectly and really sets the tone!
Okay so it had been months since I read Coal so I was super excited to get my hands on this book! Chalcedony picks up where Coal left off but this time we see more of the sometimes villain, sometimes heroine Chalcedony.
I think what I liked about this book was how it wove in elements from the other books in the series, such as Black Beauty(which was my favorite of the 3 btw)with the kids(who are adults now).
Bug Boy! Bug Boy was always my favorite in the first book so I was ecstatic to see him make an appearance in this book.
COAL! Coal in this book made me so much more curious. Things just gotreal interesting with Coal's storyline. I was always on the edge of my seat when Coal was introduced. I liked how this one threw Coal in a contemporary setting since I'm a huge contemporary nut, I loved seeing Coal in a high school setting! And his home girl Zora! I loved how ratchet she appeared in my head. I totally saw myself in her with her crazy make up and hairstyles. AN dI just love names that begin with the letter Z, random I know! I probably would have died if he hooked up with her because she was such an amazing side character to me. I shipped them so hard.
I don't think there was anything I truly disliked about Chalcedony but sometimes when Haline took stage, I was a bit bored with her parts. And I hated how for every 2-3 chapters with Chalcedony and Haline, Coal only got like 1. I wanted so bad to learn more about Coal. I know this one was supposed to center more on Chalcedony but Chalcedony is definitely one of those characters you either love or hate, I think I'm switzerland. I don't hate her but sometimes I wonder her reasons fro doing things and I can't figure her out. I want so bad to get her, but she sort of has this, I'm the queen, I can do whatever I want attitude. It frustrates the hell outta me.''
Overall though, I can't wait to read the third book in the series, Jade. Jade was always my favorite and I can't wait for her to make her grand entrance!
