The Last Faerie Queen

The Last Faerie Queen

Please note that this review may contain spoilers for its prequel, The Last Changeling. You can read my review of this novel [here].

The Last Faerie Queen was written by Chelsea Pitcher and first published in 2015. It follows on directly from where The Last Changeling (2014) left off, with Taylor and his friends starting their new lives in Faerie. Although it is a sequel, The Last Faerie Queen does stand on its own fairly well and so I personally think that it could be read in isolation.

Although Elora lost her wings to Naeve, she has still kept her burning desire for revolution. Now she’s back in Faerie, she’s ready to gather her supporters and begin the final push against the Dark Court. However, there is one problem. Her human friends – Taylor, Kylie, Alexia and Keegan – have all joined her in the Bright Court. They want to help her fight but she knows that if they willingly enter the battle, the Dark Faeries will have them torn to ribbons.

To make matters worse, she learns that Taylor traded his full name to the Bright Queen in exchange for the means to save Elora’s life. Now, the Bright Queen only has to speak it to control his body and make him do whatever she desires. Elora has no choice but to rework her plans in order to protect him. Using each of her friend’s unique skills she works on a new way to confuse and defeat the Dark Faeries, one which will ensure minimal lives are lost.

However, things go horribly awry when Elora’s supporters in the Dark Court begin to lose faith in her. When they capture two of her friends and take them before the Dark Queen, Elora’s plans need to change again in order to factor in their rescue. The Dark Queen is cruel and her hatred for humans knows no bounds. Elora knows that she must hurry before her friends are offered up to her as sacrifices…

The Last Changeling

The Last Changeling

The Last Changeling was written by Chelsea Pitcher and first published in 2014. It is a paranormal romance novel about a faerie princess who is forced to venture in the human world to save her people. The book forms the first part of The Last Changeling series and is followed by The Last Faerie Queen (2015).

Although Elora has grown up in the Dark Court, she longs for its destruction. She can see the strife that it has caused and watched as her mother, the Dark Queen, ruled her subjects by using fear and discord. Desperate to free her people, she approaches the Bright Queen for assistance as she knows that only her power can rival the Dark Queen. The Bright Queen agrees on one condition: Elora must first solve a riddle.

The puzzle leads Elora into the human world in search of a boy who is both the bane of darkness and perfect for light. To pass as a human, she uses a glamour to disguise herself as a recently killed runaway and takes the name Lora. She soon meets Taylor, a teenage boy with a tragic past of his own, and finds a place among his outcast group of friends as she tries to help them get revenge against a ruthless bully.

As her friendship with Taylor grows stronger, Elora finds herself incredibly confused. She has always been taught that humans are monsters but she can see that’s not the case. Yet if she allows herself to become too attached to Taylor, she knows that it will only invite danger. The Dark Court hunts for her and she knows that they would hurt the people she cares about if it would root her out…
