Blurb (from Goodreads):
Noli and her true love V fear the worst if the Staff of Eris—a potent Otherworld relic—falls into the wrong hands. Broken into pieces and hidden in the mortal realm long ago, the staff bestows vast powers on whoever possesses it. Ciarán, the dark king, is trying to rebuild the staff, intending to use it to install a new queen.
In a desperate effort to keep the Otherworld from falling into darkness, Noli and V plot the daring theft of a jewel Ciarán needs to complete the staff. But Ciarán is not so easily defeated. Through his devious machinations, he has set a plan in motion for a final showdown that will decide who rules the Otherworld once and for all.
My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars

This was an okay story, but it dragged in places.
Noli said things she shouldn’t have said in this instalment, and did things she shouldn’t have done. She wasn’t quite as annoying as she was in the last book, but I still didn’t love her.
The storyline was okay, and there were a couple of surprises. I did find that some things felt a little farfetched though, and I really didn’t think that Noli having a sword was a good idea! The pace did feel slow at times though, and I did find it hard to not put this down in places.
There was a little bit of romance, and that was okay, and we did get a bit of a happily ever after in that respect.
Otherwise the ending was okay, but not everything was tied up, leaving me thinking that this isn’t the end of the story. I can’t say that I’m pleased that there will be more books though unfortunately.
Overall; okay, but dragged a bit,
6.5 out of 10.
