The Faerie Ring #2 The Torn Wing

Historical fantasy, Irish lore and abound in history and mythology. Presenting The Faerie Ring #2 The Torn Wing by Kiki Hamilton.

Here is the summary of the book:

London 1872 -

A bloody escape, a deadly threat, a shocking revelation...

As an orphan who stole the Queen's ring - only to find the ring was a reservoir that held a truce between the world of Faerie and the British Court - Tiki’s greatest fear suddenly becomes all too real: the fey have returned to London seeking revenge. As war escalates in the Otherworld, Queen Victoria’s youngest son, Prince Leopold, is attacked. In order to protect her family and those she loves, Tiki needs to know the meaning of an fáinne sí, the birthmark that winds around her wrist. But will she be brave enough to face the truth?

Kiki Hamilton delves a little deeper into her creation with this book. There is a lot more drama, suspense, a sinister plot abound, lore, hunt of the truth and lot more developing forlorn looks of longing and love. The business with the Ring may have been over but fresh dangers are about and what the Unseelie Court wants does not exactly bode well with the rest of the world.

And Tiki is right in the middle of it. In The Faerie Ring, we found out that Tiki is the only living descendant of the long lost fae monarchy. And Tiki and Rieker must do everything not only just to save the peace with the fae but to prevent the Unseelie King from taking over London and wreaking havoc in the mundane world as well.

Under Hamilton's penmanship, we visit the 1800s London again, of old world monarchs, of masquerade balls and of the nether world in all its sheer brilliance. Tiki's character shows much more development this time. Sha has finally found a place to call home, all the kids she is looking after are well looked after. She is much more resolved to see that no harm comes to her loved ones. Her feelings for Rieker grows day-by-day ..... burning a slow track with us. Ms. Kiki sure knows how to tease us poor readers, giving out the candy but not the dessert. Life is an adventure in its own right and Kiki Hamilton has successfully taken us on the second stage of this journey with the promise of more.
