Meghan Chase has a secret destiny--one she could never have imagined... Something
has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father
disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in
at school...or at home. On her 16th birthday, weird things began happening and her prankster best friend becomes very protective. But
she could never have guessed the truth-- that she is the daughter of a
mythical faery king and is a pawn in a war. Now Meghan will learn
just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a
mysterious evil no faery creature dare face...and to find love with a
young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy
I enjoyed this series overall. Mythical world vs. real world story. One young girl gets pulled into a realm and love triangle is created with her best friend and new prince. Of course there are .5 books called summer's and winter's passage that have been added to the series for in between the books written. It is a cute story. I think series need to end at book 3, then it seems like the story will never end.
In book 3, the main character and prince become intimate before marriage. There are no details of their intimacy and it is very similar to the "Fault of Our Stars." If you are a parent, be prepared to have this discussion with your child.
