Melling, O.R. The summer king.
Laurel, still mourning the death of her twin sister Honor, is in Ireland visiting her grandparents. Obsessed with the idea that she is responsible for Honor's death, she revisits the cliff where Honor died and meets one of the Fair Folk. Honor believed in fairies, though Laurel scoffed; now, Laurel finds herself on a quest to save the world of Fairie, and her own. If she succeeds, she'll see Honor again; if she fails, the penalty is death. Aided by the mysterious and often hostile Ian, she sets off to save the Summer King from his long imprisonment. But many things are yet to be revealed, and Laurel has very little time to figure out whose side she is on. This second entry in a series reads perfectly well as a stand-alone, with an involving plot and an intriguing if sometimes annoyingly clueless heroine. Deirdre Root, Ref.
