James and Dee go to boarding school for gifted musicians. There he is haunted by a female fairly that offers music for years of his life. He has to struggle with his lust for the fairy and the gift she offers. Dee and him are distant from each other their friendship is struggling. Fairy's are still drawn to Dee and this cause's many problems for the unusual staff at the school. There is some history here, that slowly leaks out. This was an interesting book although it was not nearly as good as the first one. It was mesmerizing. I'll read the next one. ( )

This is the follow up to Lament: The Faerie Queens Deception. James, Dee's best friend from the previous book, meets Nuala, a fairy who usually survives by feeding off of artistic types in exchange for making them better at what they are. James knows better then to strike a deal with Nuala, but that doesn't stop him from falling in love with her. Throughout the book Dee's unsent text messages are interspersed between chapters told by James and Nuala. These texts drove me nuts, while James and Nuala's story was great, I wanted to know what was happening to Dee as well. I hope at some point Stiefvater plans on telling Dee's story in another book. The book was well written and I love the characters, I just wish I knew what was happening in the rest of the story. ( )
