Meghan Chase has a secret destiny-one she could never have imagined Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school...or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth-that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face...and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

I am surprised at how much I liked this book. I started it with the idea that it would be light and fluffy, like unto the Fairy Path stories. Not so, my friends. It's not totally dark, but I'd say it definitely falls into the modern urban fantasy genre, with a dash of teen romance and a bit of steampunk thrown in. I will say that it bothers me how easily and .... oh, we'll say hormonally, these teen girls fall in love in these books. I'm a little tired of the zinging and the heart-throbbing being equal to true love. But, that's kinda how it is when you are young, and so this is just art reflecting (and magnifying) reality. And to sound even snarkier (before I step off my soap-box), let us all remember that puppy love is very important to puppies. Right then, on we go. The story is interestingly diverse, with a good mix of characters and archetypes. Meghan is a typical underdog with a very strong and realistic development over the course of the story. I like Kagawa's mix of classic myth elements with modern reality. A strong story all around. I'll be looking for the sequel when it comes out this fall.
