After cheating death, Veronica Welling is determined to savor every moment in her idyllic kingdom with both her true love and best friend by her side at last. At the same time, Mackenna Reid is enthusiastically building her new life and a theater with her prince. But just as their dreams of happiness are within reach, the world Vee and Kenna have chosen is ripped away, leaving them to face their most horrific challenge yet--their old lives.

Thrust out of Doon, the best friends are confronted with tormentors from their past and no way to return to their adopted land. When the MacCrae brothers rush to their rescue, the girls' situation turns from nightmare to modern-day fairy tale. But their happiness could be short lived: unbeknownst to them, someone in their closest circle is aiding the witch of Doon in her bid to destroy the kingdom once and for all.

"What in the world are you wearing-is that my sock?"
"Nay." With mock solemnity, he said, "it is a priceless token given to me by my most esteemed and beautiful lady. Her footwear is more precious to me than rubies or gold."
I missed a step, laughing as I swatted his bicep. "Dork."
"If my lady commands it, a dork I shall be."-Pg.35

"I'm assuming that dreamy expression on your face has something to do with a certain hysteria-inducing prince?"
When I didn't asnwer right away, she clasped her hands next to her cheek and squealed, "Oh, Prince Jamie! He's sooo gorgeous!!"-Pg.52

"Kiss her you dolt!"
And in a perfect Little Mermaid moment, the people began to chant, "Kiss her! Kiss her!"
Jamie spun me around, took my face in both his hands, and kissed me until the entire world faded away.-Pg. 50

This book was very well done. It was suspenseful, and fulfilled everything that I was hoping it would be, after reading the first two books in this series. The slow romance between Vee and Jamie was perfectly written. Same with Kenna and Duncan. The way that Jamie obsesses over Vee, and protects and cares for her is so perfect and makes me feel so amazing. It makes me wish that Jamie were a real live prince that would come and sweep me off of my feet. There were just a few reasons why I couldn't give this book five out of five stars like I hoped I would. First of all is something that I am not quite sure how to explain. Something about the way it was written bothered me. It wasn't the plot though. It was just the way that some things were worded, and some of the things that were said by the characters that didn't feel real. I am not referring to the Scottish way that the Doonians speak. That is amazing and I love it. The second reason is the ending. I think that the ending is a problem in every book that I read. I can always find a flaw in it. The story ended at a part where you just have to keep reading, but you can't. That is probably my main problem here. The fact that I don't know what is happening, and I have to wait for what feels like forever to read the fourth and final book in the series. Also, I read the description for the last book titled Forever Doon, and it made me so much more not-okay. I am practically dying inside because of what it said, and because of all of the things that it didn't say.
