Half-angel mage Marion Garin has become Queen of the Unseelie, but she can’t hold the faerie courts without convincing everyone she’s in love with her cheating, abusive husband—the beloved King ErlKonig. Rumor says Marion’s in love with the God of Death. The unseelie are revolting. And it wouldn’t be so hard to fix if the rumors weren’t true…

Marion has married King ErlKonig even though she doesn’t love him. The fae are protesting against the marriage with rumors of her cheating on him with the God of Death, even though the king is the lying, cheating husband! Marion has an opportunity to regain some of her old self but she’s not sure that she wants to give up the new, nicer person she has become.

Benjamin Wilder has to reach Marion. He devises a plan to write a memoir about the sidhe. He never asks his mom for favors but this time he is desperate to get to the middle worlds so he asks his mom to talk to her publisher to get him a book contract. He doesn’t want to tip anyone off that he’s the Alpha’s son, so he uses a pen name, Benjamin Flynn. What he doesn’t realize is that name will be a major red flag for both Konig and Marion. Benjamin is desperate to figure out what is going on in his visions.

Cast in Balefire was filled with many surprising turns that kept you wanting more. While I enjoy a complex relationship I don’t always like the complicated drama and sometimes abusive aspects that follows Marion and Konig’s relationship. Benjamin’s character with his strange visions were a nice addition to the story. I’ve been a fan of Reine’s long running series and I look forward to more books in the future.
