Review: Champion of the Fey (Champion of the Sidhe #2) by S.A. Archer

Synopsis (Goodreads):
The fey are Fading. Extinction is inevitable. Lugh, one of the few fey to survive the Collapse, is already beginning to suffer the effects. Only a long shot quest to recover the artifacts might be able to restore the source of fey magic. And the first artifact Lugh seeks is dead in the heart of wizard territory.
My Thoughts: Picking up Lugh's story with him hot on the trail of one of the fey artifacts that could keep the fey from fading, we're given more insight into Lugh and his way of thinking.From what I'm gleaned from his thought processes he either attacks from the side or seduces his way into the places he needs to be. Which sounds rather Unseelie to me. Oh, Lugh, are you more balanced between dark and light than you let on?

I am really, really enjoying watching this story unfold. Like Donovan (formerly known as Jhaer), Lugh is trying to make sure his people don't waste away. Like, Donovan, he's willing to do whatever he needs to do to make it happen. He's willing to deplete himself to help those that need his help in the worst sort of way. Once again, I'm loving all the parallels between those of the Seelie Court and those of the Unseelie Court.

Quick and fun, with a little bit of bloody thrown in for good measure. Now to see what's next in this wicked saga!
