In the Faerie realm, Noli Braddock's relationship with her best friend V has grown into something more. But V's mother, Faerie Queen Tiana, has ruled that they are forbidden to see each other. Returning to the mortal realm, Noli joins the crew of her brother's air-pirate ship, the Vixen's Revenge. There she discovers that her brother has hired the scallywag Faerie huntsman, Kevighn Silver. While serving as shipmates, Kevighn and Noli learn that the Earth Court King plans to find a forbidden artifact--one that will bring destruction to everyone Noli loves.
This book was darker then Innocent Darkness, because it deals with the after effects from Innocent Darkness, and yeah, it involves a lot of broken hearts, and yeah, V and James' mom Tiana, she's like the ultimate witch with a b. Very nasty!
V and Noli don't have a lot of book time together in this book, and yeah, while that's sad, Noli does a lot by herself again, like not going home like an obedient girl to become some guy's wife, but running off to her brother to work on the Vixen's Revenge, where she runs into Kevighn. Yeah.
And like Innocent Darkness, we got a few other POV's, and it was interesting to see what everybody else was doing when they weren't with Noli, and what they were thinking, because they were doing and thinking some really interesting things!
Everything that I loved about Innocent Darkness, the steampunk, the action, was all notched up a degree in this book, because yeah, they spend a bit more time on Earth, because there's not a lot of steampunk in the Faerie realm, what with iron, and iron being something kinda important (well, metal) to steampunk!
Absolutely loved this book, and I really can't wait for Fragile Destiny after that cliff hanger ending!
