I really enjoyed this second installment in the Annabelle Lee series. Annabelle's personal life continues to be messed up, but I am actually seeing some growth in her choices. We now have 3 potential suitors, but I think she is figuring out what she needs, and what the men need, and whether or not she can provide it.
What kept this from being 5 stars was two things. There is a mystery lab, in the caves below the swamps, which may have had something to do with the mutations that occurred in the faeries in the past. I thought this storyline was fine, but by the end, I still had no real clue who was in the cave and what was going on there (who are really the bad guys). Also, at the very end, we jump 6 weeks into the future, and I didn't like missing what happened during those six weeks. But other than that, it was a great read.
