Eugenie is a fab and very likeable heroine, and this latest book has an intriguing plot with twists and turns I didn't see coming.

Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead takes readers back to the Otherworld, an embattled realm mystically entwined with our world--and ruled by one woman's dangerous choice. . .

Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land's queen, she's fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful gentry fear. . .

Who Eugenie can trust is the hardest part. Fairy king Dorian has his own agenda for aiding her search. And Kiyo, her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend, has every reason to betray her along the way. To control the Crown's ever-consuming powers, Eugenie will have to confront an unimaginable temptation--one that will put her soul and the fate of two worlds in mortal peril. . .

Praise for Richelle Mead's Storm Born. . .

"My kind of book--great characters, dark worlds, and just the right touch of humor. A great read." --Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Many readers will enjoy the change of tack but I wonder if Mead is trying to write too much, too quickly and does not have the time to flesh out some of the intriguing aspects of this series.

I did not really like this book very much. Eugenie is quickly becoming the kind of character who has things happen to her, instead of her doing things.

A little character growth and a lot less meaningless detail made a vast improvement, bringing my interest back to a series that had been lackluster from an author whose talents demand more.
