"A wonderful installment in the Shadow Fae Trilogy"

In The Sundered Stone by Elaine Corvidae, a war is about to erupt between the Seelie and the Unseelie. The two sides have battled for years in the Fairy Realm and now the two sides are battling it out within the mortal realm. They will stop at nothing to destroy one another. This is promising to be one of the biggest magical wars in their history.

Pook, who was left by his parents when he was an infant, just found out he is prince Tamnais and he wants nothing to do with the title. He was, after all, a "ragged dustbin kid." He thought the title would be more befitting for his younger brother Dubh, whom his parents raised. After all, he had all the manners that one would expect from a Prince. Pook just wants to enjoy life and spend time with Alex. But he is afraid that Alex is in love with him as a prince not as Pook, despite his feelings about being a Prince. Pook wants nothing more than to keep his friends safe and he intends to do just that with his magical sword named "Bob" by his side.

Alex is mostly human but there is a small part of her that is Unseelie. She has very little magical powers. However, Alex is an inventor and she always comes up with new ideas to help with the ongoing war. Also. Alex is dearly in love with Pook and wants nothing more than to be with him. She loves him no matter what he is, Prince or otherwise.

The time has come to bring an end to this war. A group of Faelings, including Pook and Alex, set out to locate and steal the broken halves of the Sundered Stone. Once repaired, a new King can be declared and the faeries will be reunited. But things are not what they seem. Alex must face her demons and Pook must accept his fate and make the ultimate choice.

Sundered Stone by Elaine Corvidae is a magical thrill ride and is a wonderful installment to her Shadow Fae Trilogy. Readers will be engrossed in the pages as they keep turning to see what will happen next. The characters are so intriguing and this story has an excellent plot. This is one series all faerie fans should have on their shelves.

The battle lines have been drawn, and the seelie and unseelie fae will stop at nothing to destroy one another. Caught in the middle of a war that none of them wants, the faelings of Dere must fight for their survival.

Street-wise Pook has no desire to take up the role of Prince of the Unseelie Fae. Yet he may have no choice if he is to live through the coming battle and win the heart of the girl he loves.

With little magic of her own, Alexandreya hopes that her mechanical inventions can help turn the tide of the war. But as a danger from Alex's past draws ever closer, she finds herself in the center of the maelstrom, torn between seelie and unseelie, with Pook as the prize.

For all is not as it seems, and the faelings will soon learn that everything they believed about the faery war is nothing more than a terrible lie.
