Bronwyn almost died the night her uncle killed her family in order to rule the Seelie kingdom.  She is saved by her bond mates, Lach and Shim, but has to go into hiding with their sister.   

The third story in the A Faery Story series continues the fight against the usurper that wants to eventually rule over all the various planes.  Beauty resolves one big issue, but leaves questions regarding some of the other triad relationships that are starting to form, which seems to be the norm when other planes become involved.  I enjoyed the interesting twist that the author created about the ruling classes of the various Fae. 

The idea of someone dreaming about their one(s) is not new, but the author added a few twists in this relationship.  The intrigue was interesting as well and kept my interest throughout the book.  Yes, a reader needs to read all three in order, especially as there should be another book that will continue, in part, where this one left off.  A reader gets a glimpse of an interesting relationship toward the end. 

The chemistry between Bronwyn, Lach and Shim is hot and there is a hint of BDSM within the relationship or will be in the future.  Some of the concepts that the author included about the vampires and Unseelie indicate this is a normal part of growing up in their society.  A reader will either love or hate some of the secondary characters, but all have characteristics that we run into in our lives at some point and the author did a good job of giving you a very clear picture of them. 

I will be reading this series again and am looking forward to the next book.
