About this ebook

“Dethroned is filled with action from the first right up to the end. It will keep you turning the pages wanting to know what is happening next. Once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Yeah it was that good!” - The Avid Reader

For eighteen-year-old Rouen Rivoche, being a fairy princess isn’t about fancy parties and happily ever afters. Rouen’s people are the dark Fae whose powers of lightning, thundersnow, and all things Winter make them cold, severe, and 100% intolerant of rebellion.

Too bad being a rebel is in Rouen’s blood.

Against tradition, she’s teamed up with Syl Skye, the sleeper-princess of the fair Fae—a mortal enemy who Rouen should want to kill but only wants to kiss. Plus, to be with Syl, Rouen’s masquerading as a glam goth-rock star and human high school student. Honestly, Rouen doesn’t think things could get any more complicated.

Then, she discovers she must become Queen of the Winter Court or all her people will die. No pressure.

Now, dark forces are amassing in the Winter Court, turning Rouen’s people against her and blocking her path to the throne. Even Syl with all her powers of white flame and Summer can’t stop this new kind of evil.

Because betrayal cuts close when it’s someone you love... and now it looks like Rouen’s going to be dethroned before she ever becomes queen.

Don't miss out!

Perfect for readers of romance, urban fantasy, fairy stories and LGBT.

I received a free copy of this book and opted to post a review. I'm so glad I gave the series another chance because Dethroned was everything that I had hoped the second book would be and more! In Dethroned the focus shifts from fighting the Moribund infestation and mean-girl, high school politics to the Dark Fae. Rouen's 18th birthday is approaching and she's ready for her father, the King, to make good on his promise to make her Queen. Unfortunately, her father has other plans and Rouen is forced to fight him for the crown. While I appreciated the book's fast and action-packed pace, I truly enjoyed the glimpse of Dark Fae society and Eldredge's interpretation of the different types of Fae. Fantasy fans who have knowledge of Fae lore will recognize some elements from traditional fantasy novels; however, Eldredge has added a unique spin on these elements to create an intriguing and contemporary perspective. The dialogue was a bit sappy at times, it is a YA novel after all, but Eldredge balanced those moments with her wit and snarky sense of humor. I was glad to see that the premise moved away from the high school drama and focused on what I feel are more substantial aspects of the plot. Dethroned and the "Circuit Fae Series" isn't high fantasy or even epic fantasy. If you start out reading the series with this expectation, you are going to be disappointed. However, if you start reading it with the expectation that it is a fun, YA fantasy with a really cool and unique take of Fae lore, then I think you'll enjoy it.
