Aislinn is a junior in Huntsdale, south of Pittsburgh. She is friends with Seth, an independent guy who lives in a train car made of steel. That fact is important because they, the fey, don’t like iron or steel. Aislinn is extremely rare in that she can see the faeries that are so used to being invisible to mortals. Problems arise when the Summer King, Keenan, inadvertently picks Aislinn to be the next Summer Queen, a choice that cannot be escaped and equals immortality or living death. The story unravels and Aislinn learns the depth of her love, the futility of cowardice, and that she has the power to make better options for herself.
I really like Seth. He is almost an Edward Cullen type–perfect lover, always loyal. He now has the sight, but the issue of his immortality remains. Perhaps it will be answered in the next two books, Ink Exchange and Fragile Eternity. I’m glad Donia didn’t die either. I liked her and felt really bad about her circumstances.
