Noli and her true love V fear the worst if the Staff of Eris—a potent Otherworld relic—falls into the wrong hands. Broken into pieces and hidden in the mortal realm long ago, the staff bestows vast powers on whoever possesses it. Ciarán, the dark king, is trying to rebuild the staff, intending to use it to install a new queen.
In a desperate effort to keep the Otherworld from falling into darkness, Noli and V plot the daring theft of a jewel Ciarán needs to complete the staff. But Ciarán is not so easily defeated. Through his devious machinations, he has set a plan in motion for a final showdown that will decide who rules the Otherworld once and for all.
Fragile Destiny by Suzanne Lazear
If you follow my reviews, you know that I love steampunk and fantasy so I thought Fragile Destiny would be a perfect match for me. I did love the fae and realm aspect and overall the plot was intriguing but it didn't hold me. I know this book is for readers 12 plus but the characters even though they are suppose to be “adult” seemed very young and immature. Trying to picture them “married”, yikes, nope that just didn't work for me. Although it had great potential, Fragile Destiny ended up being just a “like it” read for me.
I received this ARC copy of Fragile Destiny from Flux in exchange to a honest review. This book is set for publication August 8, 2014.
