Once again I've neglected to write this blog. I've decided that I have a lot of trouble remembering what's happened in previous books when I read their sequels, so I'm going to start writing more detailed spoiler-filled descriptions of the books I read. I'm going to try making the spoiler parts light font, so you won't accidently see it if you don't want to. If you do, just highlight the big blank space and then you can see it!
Shadowspell is the sequel to Glimmerglass. In the previous book Dana learned that she is a faeriewalker, meaning she can travel between the human world and the land of Faerie. More importantly, she can bring technology to faeries and magic to humans. Because Dana's powers are so rare, she's now spending most of her time in her own personal safe house with her father and fey bodyguard.
To complicate matters more, the Erlking is in town with his Wild Hunt. The Erlking is smooth and sexy and claims that he wishes Dana no ill will, but his sudden appearance make her (and her father) nervous. However, Dana's involvement with the Erlking is about to become much more complicated. When the Erlking tricks Ethan into attacking him, the Erlking is able to capture Ethan and make him a part of his wild hunt. In order to free him, Dana agrees to a bold proposal from the Erlking - that she'll give him her virginity. Oh, by the way, Dana learns later that if she does go through with this agreement it will result in the Erlking taking all of her powers. Oops!
I like this series because it's very different from lots of other faerie series. Dana can be annoying at times, and I don't always like Ethan, but it's an interesting story. A lot more sensual than the previous entry in the series - be warned!
