I would recommend this book for ages thirteen and up.
In this sequel to Doon, Kenna Reid realizes she made a horrible mistake-choosing to follow her dreams of Broadway instead of staying in the enchanted land of Doon. Worse, she’s received proof she and Duncan are meant to be, along with torturous visions of the prince she left behind. So when Duncan shows up and informs Kenna that Doon needs her, she doesn’t need to think twice. But even if Kenna can save the enchanted kingdom, her happily ever after may still be in peril.

I still am not completely sure how I feel about this series. I enjoyed this book more than the first one, but a big part of that is because I liked Mackenna’s perspective more than Veronica’s. The love story between Mackenna and Duncan is so much more developed than that of Veronica and Jamie. Since the romance is a large part of this series, it needed to be made more believable, and it definitely was. The pace of this book was better, and made a little more sense. In the first book things seemed to be overlooked and the reader just had to go along with it. Overall, this book was much better, but I still had issues with it.
The dialogue, yet again was extremely cheesy and childish. Reading this series reminds me of watching a TV show with bad acting. Although you are interested in the story, you can’t help but cringe the whole way through. The end of the first book was incredible and made you want to read the next book. I can’t say the same for this one. The chapter before the epilogue all came together too easily and it all worked out too fast while the epilogue felt like it was cut off mid sentence in a desperate attempt to create a cliffhanger.
Yet again, the world building was just as fantastic as the first book, and is probably the strongest point of these books. Overall, I don’t know how to rate this book. It wasn’t a five star, but it was better than the first book, (which I gave four stars.) I think I will just give this one a higher four star.
This book had no swearing and medium romance. The romance was on the same level as the first book. Throughout most of the book, there was minor violence, except for one detailed description of a half dead zombie type creature.
Four out of five stars
