The Kingdom Of Sweets is a captivatingly written tale of two noble sisters---twins light and dark---a wizard, and the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The tale of the sisters is one of jealousy, hatred, vengeance, and a bit of redemption. The Sugar Plum Fairy herself is a disturbing entity, thoroughly Fae, thoroughly Other.

This is a most excellent trilogy. Having devoured it, I will now be buying it.
Fantastic world building, such compelling characters that stay with you long after you've finished reading. Well-written and solid plotting (of both kinds!).

Kelsea is a true hero.

However, I would not suggest this is a YA book. There is gore, violence, and brutality (and plenty of swearing). Some tough stuff to read through but never gratuitous.
