For the most part, I did enjoy this book but there were a few things that kind of irked me. The cheesy and cliche “I love you”s were actually a bit excessive and like I said, delivered in what I considered to be a cliche and cheesy way. I just didn’t feel as if true sincerity was conveyed through to me as a reader during those exchanges between Verity and her guard. There are plenty of ways to convey the message of unconditional love, devotion, and loyalty that can make it appear to be more genuine and heartfelt. My other complaint is about Verity. As someone who is thrown into this completely different world, I just expected her to be fumbling more through it. She is acting as if she has grown up with princess training. It just takes away some of the believability (I know this is a fantasy novel littered with fantastical concepts no one believes)of the story and Verity as a character. I guess I just wanted to see her struggle with this new life because it would have been more enjoyable and even adding some drama to her journey.
Despite my long winded and rambling rant, I plan on continuing with this series, especially now that more guards have been introduced.
Have you read Slumber (The Sleeping Court Book 1)? If not STOP! Read it first it will help you understand what is going on in book 2 and who everyone is in relation to everyone else.
That being said if you are in the mood for a super sexy reverse harem/fantasy this is the series for you. In the first book Verity discovers her legacy and starts building her court. In this book Verity continues to build her court and her enemies start testing her. This book is a pause on the path and leaves you wanting more.
Verity Salim has claimed her inner court, and now she has to gain her hand of power. With several groups of people on the way to her sithen, Verity and her men must be prepared to defend against impostors and enemies alike. Prince Aziz of the Lotus Courts, an ally to the Sleeping Court, is one of the first to arrive. With his help, Verity navigates her way through several trials and is given a glimpse into Faerie's vision for her court.
If you're looking for an introduction to the RH Fae world, this is a good place to start.

In my review of the first book I said that there wasn’t much new plot-wise in the start to this series, but things are moving in a more unique direction in this second book.
One of the things I like about this series is that the Captain of the Princess’ Guards, Arien, is a woman, and a fox shifter rather than an all powerful fae. She is strong and focused and loves Verity, and is loved in return. It’s quite unusual to get a woman in a reverse harem and I like it.
I am also enjoying that Verity is making alliances with other houses, not just collecting people for her guard. She’s also acquiring staff. All these people are interesting and diverse in nature and personality. The authors have done a good job in creating characters who are different from each other.
As Verity gathers guards, staff and alliances the attacks on her court step up a gear and it is up to her guards to work out how to keep her safe. Through all the challenges, Verity starts to feel her magic growing and gathering in strength.
Things are definitely becoming more interesting and I can’t wait to read the next book.
