Book Review- The Immortal Realm

I just finished reading The Immortal Realm (Faerie Path #4) by Frewin Jones.

From Goodreads:

In an instant, a time of joy and celebration turns to one of heartbreak and fear.

Tania has finally found a way to bring her two worlds together, and while enjoying a long-awaited meeting of her Mortal and Faerie families, with her beloved Edric by her side, all seems right for the princess.

But when a Faerie baby suddenly falls ill, followed by more and more Faeries—including her own sister Cordelia—Tania knows that something is terribly wrong.

With no time to lose, Tania joins forces with her sisters to find a cure before this dark plague kills everyone she loves. Yet as the illness spirals out of control, Tania realizes that what they really need is help from the Mortal World. But will bringing another stranger to Faerie only make things worse? With countless lives hanging in the balance and a fast-growing Faerie suspicion of all things Mortal—including Tania herself—Tania makes a desperate move that will either save the land and people she has come to hold dear . . . or destroy their only chance for survival.

It has been awhile, 11 months, since I read the last book in The Faerie Path series.  I didn't really remember much about the plot of the story, just the overall feeling that I really enjoyed them.  And after reading this fourth book, I remember why. 

The story just flows so easily.  And I get so invested in the characters.  I want to know what is going to happen with Tania and Edric.  And what the fate of Connor will be.  And if Tania will be able to find the cure for the plague. 

I am having a hard time reviewing this book without giving anything away, so I will just say this:
The book ended at a place where it left me wanting more.   I don't think it was a cliffhanger exactly, but there were so many questions left unanswered.  I'm glad that I have the next book in the series, The Enchanted Quest, to read right away.

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.

This book fulfills items in the following challenges:
2010 100+ Reading Challenge: 146
2010 Young Adult Reading Challenge: 111

*FTC Disclosure: I traded this book with a friend.
