Literary Nymphs Reviewer:  Amazon Nymph 

After being given an ultimatum, Dante decides to find a consort that is unacceptable to his father.  Kaja has been cast out from her pack and then kidnapped and taken as a consort/bondmate for the various plane states. 

Beast refers to the fact that Kaja is a werewolf in this second installment of A Faery Story series.  Kaja realizes just how bad her life had been until she met Dante, but feels that she is only temporarily in his life.  This story is about betrayal and finding real friends and enemies, some that will surprise you.  Some of the returning characters play a very important part as Dante and Kaja learn more about each other as they feel their way through their relationship.

As civil war plays an important part in this story and the war starts playing a more active role throughout the book.  As various worlds determine where they stand, the danger to all starts getting very intense.  This story is also about choices and how they affect everyone’s life, sometimes with unintended consequences.  The author has definitely drawn me into this world and I can’t wait for the next book.  Yes, you need to read these in order.

The reader learns more about the society of the various paranormal worlds, or planes, as they are called.  The societal mores regarding consorts and bondmates got more interesting as I read.  Tournaments to compete for one are the norm, though Dante didn’t have to fight for Kaja, due to some interesting circumstances.  Dante and Kaja relationship is hot so be prepared.
