Being a fairy princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when you have to choose between saving your people…And killing your girlfriend. Oh, and let’s not forget having to pass summer school, too.
Talk about a hot mess.
First, there’s Rouen, princess of the dark Fae, goth-rock star Euphoria, and soon-to-be senior at Richmond Elite High. Her world is all things ice, snow, and death. And that death will include her own people unless she can defeat her evil father in a Battle of Wits and War and seize the throne. Trouble is, taking the throne is a death sentence for the princess of the fair Fae. In other words, a quick death for Syl, Rouen’s girlfriend.
And that’s so not good.
Second, there’s Syl, princess of the fair Fae, geek girl mathlete, and also an incoming senior. Things aren’t any easier for her. Syl must save her people by battling her old nemesis, the fair Fae prince, and the same rules apply: taking the throne means a death sentence for the other court’s princess, Rouen.
Even worse, Syl and Rouen’s enemies have figured out they’re a couple. Now, both Rouen’s father and Syl’s archenemy are teaming up to ensure neither of them makes it till Midsummer’s Day never mind to the fall semester.
Looks like passing summer school is the least of their worries.

Inimical is the third book in the circuit fae series. It's a continuous story. Syl found out in book one she was a sleeper fairy and part of the light fae community. She met Roue who was struggling with her own demons. She's a dark fairy and her family want her to kill the sleeper fairies princesses. It isn't what she wanted to do, but she was given a guiding hand. She joined the high school Syl attends and things got complicated. The girls fell in love. Now they have partnered up and not everyone is happy about it. They have monsters to fight and schoolwork to finish. 

In book 3, Syl and Roue are back and so is term time. Unfortunately, Syl is struggling to sleep now she's dating a princess of the dark Fae her nightmares are disagreeing with her decisions. These two are supposed to be enemies. They want to bring peace to their people but neither side is open to negotiations. Both sides are trying to do what it takes to ensure their people survive. Unfortunately for the girls this means their fathers are stepping in. A light princess is supposed to be the queen of a light prince. Their union is the simple solution, but Syl has already said it's not what she wants. Syl and Roue want to try and work their own way out of the dying kingdoms problems, but everyone is against them. Their last attempt failed and caused more problems. Winter and Summer fairies are from two different worlds. They are not supposed to fall in love. 

The action is stepped up a notch in this instalment. There is less school and more fantasy. I liked the story and the plot has some interesting twists. Inimical sets up the story for book 4 and will leave you wanting more. The author suggests there will be less Mundane and more fantasy in future storylines. 

This series is aimed at the younger teen audience. I'm glad the school attendance will be phased out and I'm hoping for more character growth in the next book. I'm not really a fan of the hip (not sure if that's the right word) language used by the girls, however I'm guessing this will appeal to a younger audience. Overall this is a nice series about fighting for what you want. 

4 stars out of 5. *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review as part of the blog tour. 

Raised by witches and dragons in the northern wilds, GIE writes angsty urban fantasy YA romance--where girls who are mortal enemies kick butt, take names, and fall in love against all odds.
She enjoys long hikes in the woods (where better to find the fair folk?), believing in fairies (in fact, she's clapping right now), dancing with dark elves (always wear your best shoes), being a self-rescuing princess (hello, black belt!), and writing diverse books about teenage girls finding love, romance, and their own inner power.
She might be planning high tea at the Fae Court right now.
GIE is multi-published, and in her role as an editor has helped hundreds of authors make their dream of being published a reality.
