The battle against goblinkind continues . . . but which side will Teagan be on?

Teagan, Finn, and Aiden have made it out of Mag Mell alive, but the Dark Man’s forces are hot on their heels. Back in Chicago, Tea’s goblin cousins show up at her school, sure she will come back to Mag Mell, as goblin blood is never passive once awoken. Soon she will belong to Fear Doirich and join them. In the meantime, they are happy to entertain themselves by trying to seduce, kidnap, or kill Tea’s family and friends. Tea knows she doesn’t have much time left, and she refuses to leave Finn or her family to be tortured and killed. A wild Stormrider, born to rule and reign, is growing stronger inside her. But as long as she can hold on, she’s still Teagan Wylltson, who plans to be a veterinarian and who heals the sick and hurting. The disease that’s destroying her—that’s destroying them all—has a name: Fear Doirich. And Teagan Wylltson is not going to let him win.

Opinion:

Everything is going good for Teagan after repeated heartbreak in the last book. She’s back at home with some new friends surrounding her. Cat-sidhe and other Fir Bog haunt her, but overall everything is going great. The large part of the beginning of this book is about life calming back down after the first book.

The thing about this series is that regardless if the action is constant or a bit slow it’s an eccentric ride. One that leaves a smile on my face throughout. Finn is adorable and Teagan’s dedication to her goals is refreshing. Aidan is still my favorite character in the book though. His little resident fairy just adds to the cuteness of little Aidan.When they are in danger you can’t help but care. By care I mean sit up and start reading at supersonic speed.

Everyone has come away with injuries in Tyger, Tyger, but they have bonded in a odd little family. The family is made up of people that are so diverse and should be enemies and yet when one is threatened they bond together to fight the outside force.

The mythology is one of the most intriguing and fleshed out in such amazing detail that the world seems completely plausible at the same time it seems completely magical. I get that Mag Mell is a terrifying place, but it’s also so charming I’m not sure I’d be able to stay away.

I adore this series and can’t wait to read more! This was a great sequel to the amazing debut Tyger, Tyger!

I'm a wife, student, and a dog-lover who reads when I should be folding laundry (bane of my existance), I write (rarely as academic papers consume my life), and love getting wrapped up in fiction.
