Synopsis (Goodreads):
While the Zebras reel from the loss of Erin, Erin herself makes some troubling discoveries while connecting with her ancestors.

In Faerie, Aoide and her troupe seem to finally be enjoying their big break...but danger is on the way, and nothing is ever what it seems when you're dealing with leprechauns and the treacherous Queen Mab.
Thoughts on Fairy Luck: I've been consistently amazed at how J.L. Bryan can come up with such an utterly off-kilter world as I've worked my way through the series. This book cemented the fact the guy has a twisted brain. As it turns out, I like twisty things. Huh. I think I just implied I like J.L. Bryan's brain. This is true. It's very fun to squeeze. Strange things fall out and I get to play with them. But not in a creepy way. (because squeezing someone's brain is TOTALLY not creepy, amirite?!?!)

Right. So. The Zebras. Tragedy struck at the end of book 5 and we get to see the aftermath of it here. With Erin gone, Jason falls apart. He has no interest in the band and he's ready for his life to go back to normal. Except, how normal can things be when you were once a world famous rock star? Mitch is his usual abrasive self and Dred has found a way to keep doing what she loves. Meanwhile, Erin is learning some very interesting things about herself and her family. I spent a good chunk of this book upset with the way she didn't seem to care about how her disappearance would affect her family or friends, but there are forces at play here and I'm curious how it'll all play out.

Back in Faerie, Mad Queen Mab's plot is unfolding and things look bleak. Methinks a certain leprechaun bit off more than he could chew when he took up with the mad queen. If I'm reading the signs right, it doesn't look like things are going according to his plans. Unless he's just that crafty. And, honestly, he might be.

Entertaining, fast paced, and so odd it'll leave you smiling, this series is gearing up toward a big finish. Events have been set in motion and answers will (more than likely) be coming. Until then, we have to content ourselves with giant puppies, a nutty queen, and one oversized cat. Good times.
