Jennet Carter escaped the dark faeries of Feyland once. Now, fey magic is seeping out of the prototype game, beguiling the unwary and threatening everyone she cares about.
Tam Linn may be a hero in-game, but his real life is severely complicated. Still, he'll do whatever it takes to stop the creatures of Feyland, even if it means pushing Jennet toward the new guy in school--the one with an inside connection to sim-gaming... and the uncanny ability to charm everyone he meets.
Despite the danger, Jennet and Tam must return to Feyland to face the magic of the Bright Court--and a powerful new enemy who won't stop until the human world is at the mercy of the Realm of Faerie.
Anthea Sharp has done it again, after The Dark Realm I really didn't know where she could take this concept, but she has once again blown me away. I seriously enjoyed this book, it was exciting and fun and whilst I can't say it was AS amazing as The Dark Realm it was still absolutely fantastic. I loved this book.
Once again Jennet and Tam are amazing characters. Jennet was much less selfish in this book but I think that she still put herself at risk a lot. I still loved Tam, he was caring and sweet and looked after Jen and he was also jealous and angry when the time called for it. Their relationship is still developing at a slow pace and popped up when the moment was right, I like it when the romance takes a back seat to the fantasy storyline. Roy was a good addition to the book, he added more urgency to the book and I really liked that a lot more of the story took place in the real world, though Feyland does still play a very large part.
What I love about this book is that it combines the techy aspects that I love in sci-fi and contemporary but also that fantasy aspect. The scenes in Feyland are so vivid that you almost forget you're reading a book about a video game, I love how well the fantasy and the sci-fi and the contemp merge together to form this fantastic mixing pot of awesome. Yes, I did just call this book a mixing pot of awesome. Don't judge.
Overall, I love this series and I can't wait to see what book #3 brings us. Rock on, Anthea Sharp.
