In the Light Court, Filidea strives to bring the evil Lord Taranis to justice for rape. Her actions place her in enormous danger. But she's not the only one to suffer at Taranis' hands. This man has a sadistic streak as Robin knows all too well, and is about to find out again.
This is Book 2 of The Knights' Protocol trilogy.
This is the second book in a trilogy, set in a dystopian world following a war between mankind and the Fae.
Our reluctant hero Robin Goodfellow, is exiled in the human realm, and must team up with human lieutenant, Luke Weir, to find a portal back to Tir na nÓg and save both worlds.
The novel has more focus on the political rivalry between the Dark and the Light courts and the truly evil experiments of Lord Taranis. We learn more about Robin’s alter-ego Puck and the reasons behind the war.
As with the first novel, there are some fantastic characters and refreshing takes on mythical creatures such as imps, pixies and fairies. Parker also makes a point of breaking down stereotypes, particularly relating to gender, race and sexuality. It’s good to see some strong female characters taking centre stage.
The fight scenes are visceral and well drawn, and the tension remains high throughout the book, however there are sweet and funny moments that act as a counter to the brutality, particularly Keir’s relationship with Darcel and the ‘will they or won’t they’ relationship between Luke and Robin.
Another great read with a thrilling climax! Written by Sarah Linley
