Synopsis: Eugenie Markham is a shaman for hire. She’s paid
to bind and banish creatures from the
Otherworld.
But something happened after her last battle. She became queen of the Thorn Land. With her kingdom in tatters, her love life in chaos, and eager to avoid the prophecy about her firstborn destroying mankind, the job’s really not all it’s cracked up to be.Now young girls are disappearing from the Otherworld, and no one seems willing to find out why. Or to put an end to it. Not that Eugenie’s fazed by spilling fey blood, but this enemy is shrewd, subtle, and dangerous — and nursing a very personal grudge.

Eugenie must venture deep into the Otherworld and trust in a power she can barely control. She may be a reluctant queen, but she’s vowed to do her duty, even if it means facing the darkest and deadliest side of her nature.

What I thought about the book: A lot of people don’t know Mead has written series for adults (she wrote Vampire Academy) and this is definitely for adults. There is a lot of sex and sexual situations in this book but it never crosses the line into erotica. Amazingly it all fits the story.
Eugenie is a better rounded character than usually seen in urban fantasy. She kicks ass but she also makes mistakes and not in the stupid way characters do sometimes. She makes an educated mistake.
