Book two in a thrillingly original new urban fantasy series—set in a dark alternate world where the Victorian age never ended...
Xandra Varden is the newly crowned Goblin Queen of England. But her complicated life is by no means over.
There are the political factions vying for her favor, and the all too-close scrutiny of Queen Victoria, who for some reason wants her head. Not to mention her werewolf boyfriend with demands of his own, and a mother hell bent on destroying the monarchy. Now she's the suspect in a murder investigation—and Xandra barely knows which way is up.
What she does know is that nothing lasts forever—and immortality isn't all it's cracked up to be.
So..I read book 1 yesterday, and this morning I picked up book 2 and read like 200 pages before work. And then finished the book when I got home. And now, I do not have book 3, oh sad me. I totally need the book.
The goblins wants Xandra as their queen cos the surprise in book 1 was that she is a goblin! I did like that twist. And I really like the goblins. They are nice and they are crazy and digs into meat like animals.
Vex, eh, ok sure he is good, I like them together. I do like my weres. I just wonder how it will play out since she is goblin queen and is is alpha wolf.
The world is still amazing and I despair. Humans will never tolerate others. And most vamps are such asses. Halvies are used, so how on earth will everyone live happily ever after? I seriously can see no end to this. Other than rivers of blood that is.
Right! The story. Ok back to the story. Her brother goes missing, she investigates and deals with the whole goblin thing aftermath.
