The Ancients of Faerie are awakening, and they don't like what they see. Imprisoned and cursed to eternal slumber in chains for centuries, Arthas, the Unseelie King of Faerie, returns to claim his realm back. The world has changed and the thirst for vengeance is all consuming.
Arthas is awaken after a very long nap. Once awoken he wants to take revenge on the others that have put him that way however he can’t get to them (I mean why make it easier for him? ;) )
I love these short stories that take place in between the novels. It gives the reader a little more in depth look into other characters and supply a little more information that wasn’t given in the other stories. I am a huge fan of Alexia Purdy and she doesn’t disappoint with this one! If you have not read any of the other Dark Fairie books, you will need to start at 0.1 (A Withering Palace, another novella that will set everything in motion). I am looking forward to reading Ever Wrath to see what happens with Arthas, Shade and everyone else involved.
