Mead brings back her half-human/half-fae shaman heroine for the third chapter in the dark and intriguing Dark Swan series. Expertly layering plot threads and character development, Mead sends her feisty heroine on a desperate journey that will test alliances and the limits of her very soul. Hang on, things are about to get bumpy!

Reluctant Thorn Queen Eugenie is dividing her time between her mortal home and Otherworld, where a brutal war is being waged. Eugenie has joined forces with the fairy king Dorian, both romantically and as military strategy. Yet the cost of the war is high. Eugenie is told of a legendary object, the Iron Crown, that could grant her the power to stop the war without further bloodshed. Finding it won’t be easy, and because of the fae vulnerability to iron, Eugenie will need the help of her ex-boyfriend, shapeshifter Kiyo. Even her allies have their own agendas, so Eugenie must be careful about who she chooses to trust. (ZEBRA, Mar., 352 pp., $7.99)
