    Good book - Disappointing Ending

    The last book in the trilogy started very well, and kept the pace and excitement I'd come to expect from the first two. Cerridwen drives me a little crazy with her wild mood swings, but it fits into the story line as she's trying to find her place. Cedric's complete change of feelings was a little more disconcerting, as it felt more like a plot device than a natural progression of character. Queene Danae also feels like she hasn't been fully thought out, and her erratic behavior feels like the author writing a character just to move the story along quickly but without wanting to crowd the stage with "extras". The ending felt very rushed, like the author just couldn't quite figure out how to make it all work into a "happily ever after" faerie tale. Still a good, quick read, just don't expect the ending to make you feel fulfilled.

    Good book but needs new ending!

    What a great third book in the series. I really did not like the ending though. It almost seems like the author ran out of time so she came up with something real quick! Very imaginative and thrilling otherwise!

    Readers will enjoy this exhilarating fantasy as the war has moved to Eire in the Upworld.

    With the deaths of her royal parents Queen Ayla and Malachai during the battle between Lightworld and the Darkworld elves and waterhorses (see the second book Child of Darkness); the heir to the throne of Faery Queene, Cerridwen flees to the Upworld human realm. Accompanying her in order to keep her safe is her late mom's chosen betrothed for her Cedric. They make it to Eire, the last fairy realm amidst the mortals.

    Ruling over Eire in the new queene's absence is the High Priestess Danae. Although she pretends to bow to Cerridwen as the rightful ruler of the Fae, she is setting up her highness to destroy her so she can reign as the rightful ruler. With no experience as a leader making life and death decisions, Cerridwen must learn fast or see the usurper take her crown, kill her allies, and plunge her people into civil war at a time they need unity to battle the Darkworld denizen.

    The third Lightworld/ Darkworld (see the first book Queene of Light) centers on the next generation as Cerridwen with Cedric at her side having her back covered battles an internal betrayal as well as the Darkworld invaders. The story line is fast-paced with the romantic subplot enhancing the political seditious intrigue that threatens the heroine. Although it helps considerably to have read the previous two tales especially the Child of Darkness to understand how Cerridwen finds herself struggling to survive, fans will enjoy this exhilarating fantasy as the war has moved to Eire in the Upworld.
