Nettle King by Katherine Harbour

Jack is gone but Lily has returned.  She's glad to have her sister but grieves for her lover.  She wants him back so much, she's willing to go to the land of the dead to get him back...

Harper Voyager and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 19th.

Finn is determined to get Jack back and she's willing to work with whatever unearthly creatures it takes to do it.

This is the third book in this series and the first one I read.  I'd recommend you read the others first, otherwise it's a bit confusing.  This is mix of alive and dead, evil and good, shapeshifting and unseelies, and more.  While Finn's friends try to protect her, she's willing to give up her life to save Jack's.

The characters are long-lived.  They've died and been born again.  They have unknown powers, and they have a taste for death.  They want Jack back, Lily needs to return to them, and they'd be happy with Finn's heart.  Once they get it, there's only three days to get her back to normal.  A lot can happen in three days.  

There are multiple plots, fantastic beings, and a fake Jack involved.  The Moth Man isn't the Moth Man.  Nobody is quite what they seem to be.

I didn't see how this story could end happily but it did for the most part.  There's sadness but the happiness outweighs it.  I can tell you for sure if you read this story you won't be bored.  There's action on every page!
