Things are much as they were at the end of Ink Exchange, Niall is King of the Dark Court, Donia is the Winter Queen, Keenan is the Summer King and coming into his full powers, and Aislinn is the Summer Queen. However, Aislinn is refusing to be more than a coworker with Keenan, she's in love with Seth. Seth is human and therefore fragile and is chafing under the care Aislinn insists on for his protection. Seth is very aware of his mortality and how short his time is with Aislinn. Then Bananach begins to work to cause strife to start a war between the courts -- and Seth is key to her plan. From official release/information:
Product Description: Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyoneóbut that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen.
Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified heróbut that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined.
In Melissa Marr's third mesmerizing tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other in a milieu of shadowy rules and shifting allegiances, where old friends become new enemies and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.
