Kit is proud to be a Blackhart, now she’s living with her unorthodox cousins and sharing their strange lives. Especially since their home-schooling includes spells, fighting enemy fae and using ancient weapons.
But it’s not until she rescues a rather handsome fae prince, fighting for his life on the edge of Blackhart Manor, that her training really kicks in. With her family away on various missions, Kit must protect Prince Thorn, rely on new friends and user her own unfamiliar magic to stay ahead of Thorn’s enemies.
As things go from bad to apocalyptic, fae battle fae in a war that threatens to spill into the human world. Then Kit pits herself against the Elder Gods themselves – it’s that or lose everyone she’s learnt to love.
Kit is a Blackhart and proud of it; she has just completed her first solo mission and heads back to the manor to celebrate with the rest of the Blackharts. She is fatigued though and is told to wait behind whilst the others go off on another mission to rest for a little while. When the youngest son of the King, Prince Thorn arrives outside her Manor, she takes it upon herself to deliver him back to safety.
This is a definite must-read for fans of The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. Filled with monster fighting/hunting you will get swept along with the action of the fast-paced, packed with excitement plot and it is certainly unputdownable.
