Über dieses Hörbuch

Down through the Way she fell, feeling the wind and the pressing darkness, the dizzy thump when she landed on the bank. She was through. The air felt softer here, the shadows deeper-and the pull of her connection to the land settled into her bones.

In the Summerlands, time moves slowly, roots grow deeply, and change is not welcomed. But change is needed.

After defeating the wicked Mor and freeing her kin from deadly oaths made to this false ruler, Fer is now the rightful Lady of the land. Yet her people don't know what to make of their new Lady's strange ways, and neither do the High Ones, the rulers of the magical realm, for Fer is an outsider-half human.

To prove herself worthy of the Summerlands crown, Fer is summoned to compete in an epic contest where her strengths and skills will be tested and her loyalties challenged. Can she trust Rook, the puck she calls friend? Can she trust herself? If Fer fails, she will lose her land and the Way will be closed to her forever.

With stunning prose, Sarah Prineas weaves an enchanting adventure in which Fer must decide if she's ready to rule and just how far she'll go to protect her kin.

    I love the world of the Summerlands and many of the characters, though I hoped for a more lyrical, mythical plot.

    I like the constant discussion of what Service is. Do we the people serve those who lead us? Or do you serve the people that you lead? Fer has to prove her legitimacy as the Lady of the Summerlands, but doesn't want to rule the people with the cold, calculating glamorie or thrice sworn oaths. The Summerlands' folk feel unbound and lost without this tradition.

    Fer goes and takes part in the Triwizard Tournament to prove that she's indeed the Faerie Queene, meets several contestants from different parts of fairyland who might use trickery to get their own way. Rook reconnects with his puck brothers and is on a quest of his own. Will Fer come out on top, will Rook have to decide between being a puck and the friendship he so clearly feels uncomfortable with?

    Fer's grandmother still wants to get rid of her or at least doesn't kick up much of a fuss when Fer jaunts off to fairyland. Half the problems that Fer gets into with Rook would have been resolved by sitting down and talking to each other. I'm also confused at Fer's poor respect for what Rook has repeatedly told her - that he'd prefer not to be tied to her. He acknowledges that she considers him her friend and does act like a decent person, but he also makes it abundantly clear where his boundaries are and that he does not want the responsibility of her trust. And she constantly ignores him. As someone who on several occasions had people think they were friends with me whom I've never really connected to on any level I am not sympathetic to her doing this.

    I remain grateful for the lack of love plot and rapiness.

    This book is the second in the Winterling series. The series will continue in Moonkind which is scheduled for a Jan 2014 release date. I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one, it was a wonderful middle grade fantasy involving fey. I would definitely recommend reading Winterling before reading this book.In the last book Fer defeated the evil Mor making her the Lady of the Summerlands. Now Fer is back in the human lands and longs to return to the Summerlands. When she returns her people don’t know what to make of her and her unique way of doing things. This includes the High Ones who request that Fer journey to their lands to compete in a contest that will prove whether or not she is the true Lady of Summerlands. This is a magical story full of adventure and intrigue with enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and entertained. It’s appropriate for all ages as well, although one of Fer’s competitors is very cruel to those around him.I love Fer as a character. She has times when she is uncertain of her actions but always decides to stay true to what she thinks is right. Everyone is telling her she is ruling the Summerland in the wrong way, but she sticks with what she believes to be right. I also loved her kindness and her loyalty to those she considered friends.Rook plays a large part in the story as well. As a pouka his loyalty to Fer is constantly called into question. He himself struggles with the call to be true to his family of poukas and his yearning to help out Fer as a friend.A good portion of the novel is spent with Fer in competition with some other competitors. They were all interesting characters and these scenes were action-packed and engaging. Going on along with this storyline there is the mystery of a missing crown. My favorite part of this book is the world. The descriptions are incredibly well done and create excellent imagery for the reader. There are new creative and magical things around every corner so you never know what to expect. The book is well written and a fairly easy read. The plot isn’t incredibly complex (it’s written for young readers) but it is complex enough to keep an adult interested and engaged. Overall I enjoyed this book a lot. I love the magical world and the wonderful creative descriptions throughout. Fer is an excellent example of a growing girl who is trying to do what she believes in, even if doing what everyone else thinks is right would be the easier path. This is an absolutely wonderfully creative and engaging fantasy, I highly recommend it to all ages of readers who love fantasy. I can’t wait to read Moonkind when it releases.
