Summary from

My name—my True Name—is Ashallayn’darkmyr Tallyn.

I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her.

My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…

I’ve really enjoyed this series so far but this book was by far my favorite of the series!  I love Ash but was a little worried how it would be focusing just on him and I thought not having as much Puck and Meghan.  Fortunately Puck is still very much present as he accompanies Ash on his journey to keep his promise to Meghan to find a way for them to be together.

If you were like me you were dying to know more about Ash’s past and especially the relationship between he, Puck and Ariella.  Well brace yourselves for all the down and dirty details.  We find out how Ash meets Ariella, falls in love and quite the surprise over how all these events came to bring Ash and Meghan together.

We also get to see a more serious side of Puck and the pain he hides over the death of Ariella and losing Meghan to Ash.  I can’t help but feel sorry for him.  He’s funny and such a great friend and yet loses out to Ash not once but twice in the love department.  This book just made me love him all the more for seeing his vulnerable side.  Grimalkin is typical Grimalkin.  He shows up when he wants, disappears without a word and yet is always there when needed.

My favorite part of the story is Ash’s trials that he must pass to become human.  We get a glimpse into his possible futures and some of them are heart breaking but they just prove how deep his devotion to Meghan goes.  There are several surprises along the way which I don’t want to ruin but let’s just say this is one book you do not want to miss out on.
