Meghan Chase has a secret destiny-one she could never have imagined Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six.
She has never quite fit in at school...or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth-that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.
Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face...and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

Review by tracythelibrarian
I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. Outcast girl finds out she's half-fey and a PRINCESS, no less! Sweet! And falls for hunky prince of the wrong faery family. And there's the comedic best friend and a kidnapped brother who is found in the lair of a bad guy who is defeated by the hunky prince from the wrong side of the tracks and the half-fey princess working together. Seriously, I'm hooked and can't wait to start the second book in the series.

Not bad, not amazing. The definition of a two and a half star book. Having just finished reading Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series I am really not up for another love triangle with no triangle so I'm at least pleased Puck seems to have some chance with Meghan. Having said that of course I know it's not actually going to happen because the people who read these kinds of books don't want the best friend lover, they want the super perfect tortured hero guy who bathes in angst and more angst.Meghan, apart from having a misspelt name, really isn't a great lead heroine. She's determined enough but can't actually accomplish much of anything without other people doing all the legwork. I'll continue to read the series as it's not pro-actively offensive but mostly I'll just be waiting to see what happens with Puck.
