As Camelot’s history unravels and old would are unearthed and conspiracies raging afire, Emrys must get over her insecurities a large portion of the book deals in that and get Richard and get back her happiness. I enjoyed All That Glows more than I expected to – the love interest is adorable! The story was told at a natural pace from Emrys point of view – which makes it a rysn and easy read due to the conversational tone of the writing.
Rarely have I encountered someone with this amount of incomprehensible romantic stupidity. She had more graidin with those terrible similes than she had with Richard. Graudin, however, offered a little mercy to the readers by developing the romance properly.
The prince’s careless ways and royal blood make him irresistible to the dark spirits that feed on mortals. I liked Richard best of all, I think, because his journey was rough and genuine.
She’s a fae that ends up being the guard of Prince Richard. When an ancient force begins preying on the monarchy, Emrys must hunt through London’s magical underworld, facing down Banshees, Black Dogs, and Green Women to find the one who threatens Richard’s life.
I have no idea what she saw in Richard to make her even remotely consider him to be relationship-material, let alone make her fall in love with him. I liked how Emrys and Richard’s relationship wasn’t quite the happily ever after that was expected at the end of the previous book, something that was helped along by Guinevere and her interference, and that ultimately their feelings were tested.
If you were hesitant like me initally about having a sequel for All That Glows, don’t be! And the action comes hard and fast: Beautifully rendered, Graudin gave this a much needed reality. Emrys and Richard were so sweet together.
No spoile Short and Sweet: Even though this book was over pages it was a fast read and was full of action, fantasy, and some romance!

I present you some of the fabulous examples of writing within this book. The writing stinks like the farting of a particularly flatulent warthog. It probably would also have helped if this wasn’t set in England very little attempt is made thereif Richard wasn’t a Prince, if “Embers” was younger or supposedly less experienced, if Embers didn’t have that awful nickname, if this were more tightly plotted, if the characters had better arcs, and if the book was about pages shorter.
You don’t even understand how much I love these two together. I wanted to like All That Glows, I thought the concept could be interesting. While the lovey-dovey sickness that contaminated the first novel was still there, the addition of King Arthur’s story, the “real” reason for Guinevere’s betrayal, and Annabelle’s love story all made this book worth it.
But, he showed how loyal he was to Emrys and how much he would do for her and he was as sweet as ever. Maybe it’s because I just finished watching “Merlin” but I’ve been fond of the story lately and it was nice seeing it worked into this book. Suddenly I feel selfish. Read reviews that mention prince richard ryan graudin royal family green women main character black dogs really enjoyed exchange for an honest paranormal romance really liked little bit world building banshees black assigned to guard hard time party boy year old julie kagawa fast paced veiling spell.
Review to come closer to release date. I think a lot of readers will really enjoy this series, but I just couldn’t get into it.
Thank you, Edelweiss, for giving me the opportunity of reading and review this book. Other women are not the enemy, no matter how much cleavage they show. I lunge to the top of the table in a single movement, ignoring the stress on my humanoid muscles and how much I want to vomit. It was beyond magical to see these two fall in love, even when the story’s only from Emry’s point of view.
I only assumed they were part of nature and along the way humans who started building technology that made them sick. I read and loved All That Glows as a standalone.
I usually hate books dealing directly with the faeries, because they’re silly, usually, but I really enjoyed this one. It’s lyrical, almost, and while there are many descriptions, they’re not all lumped together, and they aren’t too boring. How cool would it have been to dive into the centuries of hidden history and watch it intersect with the lineage of men?
She cannot protect him. I guess you can say they were blinded by love.

Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance Find this book on: I don’t mean I couldn’t get behind the impossibility of it, after all we are dealing with fairies; however, I just couldn’t deal with the insta-love and then the continuation of girly love language in everything. The only place this is okay is in Scooby-Doo.
I loved the plot and it actually felt like it moved faster than the first book. Review forthcoming on http: The romance is the central thing in this book, so if you aren’t into that, it’s unlikely you’ll enjoy the story.
