Charmed Vengeance (The Aether Chronicles #2) 
Author: Suzanne Lazear
Genre: YA Fantasy/Steampunk
Release Date: August 8, 2013
Publisher: Flux

In the Faerie realm, Noli Braddock's relationship with her best friend V has grown into something more. But V's mother, Faerie Queen Tiana, has ruled that they are forbidden to see each other. Returning to the mortal realm, Noli joins the crew of her brother's air-pirate ship, the Vixen's Revenge. There she discovers that her brother has hired the scallywag Faerie huntsman, Kevighn Silver. While serving as shipmates, Kevighn and Noli learn that the Earth Court King plans to find a forbidden artifact--one that will bring destruction to everyone Noli loves.

Charmed Vengeance is the second book in the young adult steampunk series The Aether Chronicles. It picks up where the first book left off - with Noli and V's relationship on a whole new level, the Faerie Queen forbidding them to be together and Noli leaving the Faerie Realm. Once she's back in the mortal world, Noli joins up with her brother's air ship - where she learns that her brother isn't just an air pirate but that he has also hired on Kevighn Silver - the Faerie huntsman. Noli and Kevighn learn of a precious artifact that the Earth Court King plans on finding and wielding - and one that would completely destroy Noli's life and those she loves.

This was a fantastic second installment in a series that continues to exceed my expectations. There were so many new twists in the book along with some great action and adventure scenes - it really sets the series apart from anything else in the genre. The characters are all very well done - they are all realistic and easy to identify with. I love Noli as a main character - she's a strong, smart, brave, and devoted chick who does what needs to be done. I immediately liked her in the first book and her character continued to grow in this book. The plot was exciting with a great mixture of genres - action, adventure, fantasy, steampunk, and romance - that you can't really pin it down to a single label. It definitely has crossover appeal for fans of several genres. The writing was exceptional and shows the immense talent that the author holds. The story had a perfect pace with a wonderful flow - I was immediately drawn back into Noli's world from the first page. Highly recommended for fans of all genres - especially those of fantasy and steampunk! This is a series that you need to check out now if you haven't already!
