The Vanishing Throne (The Falconer #2)
by Elizabeth May

Everything she loved is gone.

Trapped. Aileana Kameron, the Falconer, disappeared through the fae portal she was trying to close forever. Now she wakes in an alien world of mirrors, magic, and deception—a prisoner of the evil fae Lonnrach, who has a desperate and deadly plan for his new captive.

Tortured. Time after agonizing time Lonnrach steals Aileana’s memories, searching for knowledge to save his world. Just when she’s about to lose all hope, Aileana is rescued by an unexpected ally and returns home, only to confront a terrifying truth. The city of Edinburgh is now an unrecognizable wasteland. And Aileana knows the devastation is all her fault.

Transformed. The few human survivors are living in an underground colony, in an uneasy truce with a remnant of the fae. It is a fragile alliance, but an even greater danger awaits: the human and fae worlds may disappear forever. Only Aileana can save both worlds, but in order to do so she must awaken her latent Falconer powers. And the price of doing so might be her life…


I loved the first book in this series, but I am OBSESSED with this book. The Vanishing Throne took my expectations and blew them out of the water. 

This book had everything I ever wanted and more. There was romance, action, adventure, and more. I was so addicted to this book. I couldn't even fathom putting this book down. There was so much happening on every page that there was no way I could stop reading. Elizabeth's world and characters have completely captured me. I think about this book all the time because IT WAS JUST THAT GOOD.

THE ROMANCE IN THIS BOOK...WORDS CANNOT EVEN EXPLAIN HOW PERFECT IT WAS. I ship Kieran and Aileana SO HARD. They are perfect together and all of their romantic moments made my heart swoon. I don't know if I have ever shipped a couple as much as I ship Kieran and Aileana. I NEED THEM TO HAVE A HAPPILY EVER AFTER, OKAY?

I could go on and on about how fantastic this book was. I don't know why everyone hasn't started this series already, because it is amazing. This is honestly one of my favorite series. YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. THEN WE CAN FANGIRL TOGETHER AND DIE WAITING FOR THE NEXT BOOK TOGETHER.
