As a child, Kaysar the Unhinged One suffered at the hands of fae royalty and made it his life’s mission to destroy the Frostlines. When he grew up, he conquered the lands of Midnight and the Dusklands, becoming fae royalty himself. In his ongoing quest for vengeance, he’s willing to burn the world down around himself. Chantel Bardot, known as Cookie to her friends and enemies in the professional gaming world, was facing a short life if she didn’t get a heart transplant. When she gets a transplant of a fae princess’s heart, she suddenly starts exhibiting magical powers and accidentally opens a portal to a world that’s a dead ringer for her favorite video game. Luckily, she knows how to game, and the biggest prize of all might be the dark heart of her very own fae king. Showalter (Lords of the Underworld) launches a dark new paranormal series that is not your typical fae king/human lover fare, but a roller coaster ride of cheering for the villain—or is he the hero?—and wondering how many personalities one heroine can exhibit as part of her magic.
VERDICT Fans of Showalter will be delighted.
