Anya has failed in her mission to bring Prince Zabriel back to the Faerie realm of Chrior so that he can ascend his rightful throne. Instead, Zabriel, her prince, cousin and dear friend, is standing trial for crimes committed under the false name William Wolfram Pyrite. Worst of all, the last possible heir to the Faerie throne is Illumina, the cousin Anya suspects of the foulest betrayal possible. In a desperate last attempt to put things right, Anya must partner with the unlikeliest of allies and venture into ever more dangerous situations if there is to be any hope of peace for her people.… (lisätietoja)

I know, I know... I really should read a series in order and not just jump into the second book, but I did anyway. This book is engaging and interesting, so I found it pretty easy to pick the central pieces of the story and the characters involved. I have no doubt I would have like the story better if I had read the first book previously, but I still managed figure out much of the book and the fantasy world its set in. Overall, this made for an enjoyable read, and I'm inclined to at least read this author again, if not read the rest of the books in this series. ( )

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Three heirs, one dead, one attacked and stripped of all her magic, the last one is fine….

Opening Sentence: “I paced the floor of my room, tired and on edge, playing the memory of my mutilation over and over again in my head.”

The Review:

Picking up shortly after The Queen Choice’s ends, Anya is stuck in the human realm since she her wings were cut off taking all of her magic. Zabriel is executed for his crimes supposedly committed here in the human realm. Illumina has returned to the Faerie realm in order to let the Queen know what has happened to everyone. Although not long after she leaves Anya begins to suspect that Illumina is the reason she lost her wings.

Anya comes close to getting back the Anlace, however that necklace continues to elude her, but she does find out that Luka has Zabriel and aren’t dead. Zabriel and Anya figure out that the faeries are losing their wings because someone is attempting to cross the Bloody Road. In fact, they are preparing for a war against Faerie itself.

The Queen arrives in the human realm, and Anya and Zabriel update her on everything. Anya informs them that cutting of her wings has effectively made her human. Anya’s love triangle involving Tom and Davic comes to end, probably the shortest and most ineffective love triangle ever.

So the book itself is solidly good, I didn’t love it, it wasn’t quite bad, I just didn’t connect with it. My only real issue is the whole wing thing; I can’t wrap my head around how cutting off wings makes them less Fae. I mean it’s different and that’s cool, but I don’t understand it at all. I know it’s a fantasy book but some things are still supposed to make sense and I don’t see how wings being cut off makes a person less of the race they were born or how it causes them to lose their magic.

That’s probably my biggest major issue with the world building, the book is good, the world building is good, and the writing is good. My only other problem is the love triangle that really isn’t so much a love triangle, but in the first book and most of this book Anya is betrothed to Davic, and in most of the first book she seriously loves him or so we are supposed to think that. Until she meets Tom and then it’s like Davic who? However, I think what the author was going for more than a triangle. For instance, Davic is fae Anya’s love and Tom is the more human Anya’s love.

So to sum it all up this book is good, it’s got some romance, break-ups, death, resurrection, murder, addiction and then some. It’s a book you are either going to love or hate or just possibly be right down the middle like I am.

Notable Scene:

“The Bloody Road was the barrier that kept me from reaching home.”

“So I wouldn’t know what my partner took with him when he left me to die.”

“The Prince is alive.”

“She was there at the bloody road on the night my wings were taken.”

FTC Advisory: Harlequin Teen provided me with a copy of The Empty Throne. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )

I have not read the first book in this series. In fact, I did not realize that this was a series. Luckily I was able to quickly pick up on what this series is all about and who Anya and Zabriel were. I felt sorry for Anya and the betrayal that she experienced. While I did want a little more magic. What I mean by this is that Anya and Zabriel are royalty in the fairy kingdom. So I would have liked to have seen them use their powers. Yet, the characters and the world that the author built is what made this book really good. I was so immersed in the story that it flew by and I had just about a third of the book left before I took a break. Which the last third did go by quickly as well. A good ending. ( )
