The Marked Prince by M.A. Grant

Torn between two worlds, desperate to save one love.

The Summer Court is nothing like Sebastian remembers. The oppressed lower classes are drained of their magick, and around every corner political intrigues threaten an already unstable regime. Sebastian’s only hope of surviving the Court and bringing home Prince Lyne’s traitorous brother lies with Duine, a magickless Unseelie servant desperate to win his freedom. A servant for whom Sebastian, an estranged Seelie royal himself, is developing a dangerous and deepening affection.

But behind the mask Duine wears are secrets as dangerous as what’s smoldering between them. And the more Duine helps Sebastian navigate Court life, the more it becomes clear the servant is not who he appears to be. How he came to be the whipping boy of one of the most powerful and corrupt faeries in the Summer Court is a truth Sebastian is determined to uncover, even if it puts him at odds with the very people who can lead him to the missing Unseelie prince.

When a powerful enemy steps from the shadows, it could spell the end not just for the Unseelie, but for both faerie Courts. Sebastian must choose: complete the mission and earn his place among the Unseelie who took him in, or risk his very life to ensure freedom for the man he loves.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is such a fantastic series! The contemporary twist on classic high fantasy is beautifully executed and this second story is full of faerie court politics and thrilling action scenes.

I love the complex characters in this story and I loved unravelling all their secrets. Sebastian was an easily overlooked footnote in the first book but he’s fabulous here. Duine is a wonderful surprise and the royal family is everything I want from a classic fantasy. Without spoilers, it’s impossible to write much more about the characters and the Unseelie court but the secrets are almost as fabulous as the characters themselves.

Where most of the first book took place on a college campus, almost all of this second story takes place in the Faerie courts. I love the world building in this second book, and I love the perfect balance between the contemporary and high fantasy elements of the story. I have to admit that I raced through this book, completely caught up in Sebastian’s new world. Even though this book brings the series to a satisfying conclusion, I’m still hoping for more books set in this world.

After meeting her husband in college, they began a steady northward migration and are now happily living in the rugged beauty of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. When she’s not calling out to passing ravens or making a cup of tea, she’s writing dark and moving stories.
