My thoughts ...
One sentence summary: The series follows Megan Chase as she discovers that she's the daughter of a faery king on her 16th birthday and a pawn in a faery war.
The good: Um, everything! A female protagonist I can get behind? Check. Well-detailed, magical world that's easy to get absorbed in? Check.  Love triangle? Check.  A male character that the female protagonist and let's face it, the female readers, can fall in love with? Check.  And my other favorite aspect of the book is that it incorporates Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, which gives it a unique twist.
The bad: There are a couple cheesy scenes that got slightly repetitive and Megan is a teenager, so she's got her moments.
Do I recommend?: I read the entire series in less than a week so my answer to this question is definitely yes.  Plus there's a 4th book (The Iron Knight) coming out on October 25th and I'm very excited about that.  If you're into young adult books and fantasy, this is a series worth checking out.

Happy reading!
