A bit better than the first but still a not something I'm about to read again. Its a bit different than the first, it flows better and the ending is less rushed. But there it left me with a feeling that somethings weren't finished. ( )

Loved the book. A different twist on the urban theme that is currently in vogue. Well written, with very enjoyable characters. This is a second book in a trilogy, but it feels like a standalone novel in a well developed universe, rather than a second book filling the gap between a first and third novel like many trilogies.

Leaving his life of petty crime and drug abuse behind, young Douglas flees from Minneapolis to Edinburgh, Scotland, to his stern but fairminded Grandma McLaren, who will take him in if he can support himself. Fortunately, few cities are friendlier than Edinburgh to a guitarist with a talent for spontaneous rhyme, and soon Douglas is making a decent living as the busker who can write a song about you on the spot.

What follows isn’t what he expects. Suddenly, Douglas can see the fey folk who invisibly share Edinburgh’s ancient streets—in all their beauty and terrifying cruelty. Worse, they can see him, and they’re determined to draw him into their own internecine wars--wars that are fought to the death.

Douglas now sits on the throne of Faerie, holding the Queen and the land hostage with his powerful magic. Meanwhile, in western Massachusetts, a strange infant is left on the doorstep of an ex-marine who may have the second sight.
