Goodreads summary

Tania is a princess of Faerie.

And now she must return to the Mortal World.

Once upon a time, Tania was an ordinary girl. But then she was swept into another world, where she was the long-lost princess of the elegant and magical court of Faerie, and only she could save the court from great peril.

Now Tania--and her true love, Edric--will go back to the Mortal Realm to seek Queen Titania, lost hundreds of years ago while searching for Tania.

Their return leads to struggles with Tania's much-loved mortal parents and friends as she and Edric try to conceal their secret. But much more serious dangers lurk: The sinister Lord Drake is not yet defeated, they are pursued by dark supernatural forces, and Tania's two worlds are about to collide in amazing and frightening ways she never could have anticipated.

     I have read this whole series about two years ago and loved it (except for the last one) and I am re-reading the whole series and will be reviewing the whole series as I read it. This is the second book and Tania and Edric have been tasked with finding the lost queen, Titania. She is lost some where in the mortal world. So, they go back to the mortal realm and stuff happens.

     What I really love about this whole series is that Tania's mortal parents are there. When she went into the faerie realm for three days they noticed and the where worried sick, like any parent would. Its very common in YA that the parents are basically non-existent so they main character can do whatever happens in the book. I just appreciate that her parents where parents in this book.They grounded her for running away for three days, they where just parents. And her and Edric had to post-pon some of there plans for finding the Queen, because of her parents. I am just really glad that the author put the parents in this book.

     The characters are still great, I still love them all. There all really well written. The writing is still great in this book. The only thing that wasn't great was the plot didn't take off until the last half of the book. The first half was them trying to find the Queen and Tania getting back into the swing of the mortal realm. However, when the plot got going it really got going. It kept you on the edge of your set and never let you go. Also I didn't like how easy everything was for them in there quest. It just seemed to easy.

     This is another captivating book in an enchanting series that I love and hold close to me heart. I just love this series and would recommend it to everybody.
