Being a fairy princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when you have to choose between saving your people…And killing your girlfriend. Oh, and let’s not forget having to pass summer school, too.
Talk about a hot mess.
First, there’s Rouen, princess of the dark Fae, goth-rock star Euphoria, and soon-to-be senior at Richmond Elite High. Her world is all things ice, snow, and death. And that death will include her own people unless she can defeat her evil father in a Battle of Wits and War and seize the throne. Trouble is, taking the throne is a death sentence for the princess of the fair Fae. In other words, a quick death for Syl, Rouen’s girlfriend.
And that’s so not good.
Second, there’s Syl, princess of the fair Fae, geek girl mathlete, and also an incoming senior. Things aren’t any easier for her. Syl must save her people by battling her old nemesis, the fair Fae prince, and the same rules apply: taking the throne means a death sentence for the other court’s princess, Rouen.
Even worse, Syl and Rouen’s enemies have figured out they’re a couple. Now, both Rouen’s father and Syl’s archenemy are teaming up to ensure neither of them makes it till Midsummer’s Day never mind to the fall semester.
Looks like passing summer school is the least of their worries.


My Review
Inimical is the third book in the Circuit Fae series, and it is a doozy. There's so much going on in this story, and it kind of crazy. But in a good way, of course.

Syl and Rouen are now in summer school, which sucks, but they seem to be taking it in stride. Unfortunately, summer school is the least of their worries.

Rouen is now dealing with the aftermath of her last face-off with her father. He's now completely evil, and he has some pretty dark plans.

 Syl, on the other hand, is dealing with trying to figure out how to fix the mess she and Rouen are in, as well as discovering more about her heritage and her homeland. Stuff she maybe doesn't want to know.

Now, if you haven't read the other books, I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, so I'll try to keep things vague from here on out.

We have some interesting returning characters, a new mean girl to deal with, and a building battle that may or may not tear Syl and Rouen (and their realms) apart. 

This story is action-packed and full of some pretty intense scenes. There's a lot going on, like I said, and it's enough to make you feel like you're on a roller coaster ride, and you're not sure if you'll go flying off the rails or stay safely seated until the very end. 

There are also some really intriguing twists and turns, and that ending... well, I won't say anything to spoil it, but just know it's going to leave you anxious and eager for more. It'll be interesting to see where the next book takes us.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Inimical, and I found myself immersed in the story. I love Syl and Rouen, and I can't wait for the next book!

4 stars from me!
