Syl’s a princess of the fair Fae.
Her girlfriend Rouen is a princess of the dark Fae.
Mortal enemies. Girlfriends.
Relationship status: It’s Complicated

All introverted geek girl Syl Skye wants is to get close to her girlfriend. But when you can kill with a simple touch, a normal date night’s not really in the cards. As it happens, Syl is also a sleeper-princess of the fair Fae. Last year after a freak accident, her power Awakened, granting her white flame to purify the darkness.

Rouen Rivoche is that darkness—a dark Fae princess whose power to bewitch mortals is as terrifying as the violet lightning she controls. Rouen is Syl’s total opposite. Her mortal enemy.

She’s also Syl’s beloved girlfriend.

And even though they joined forces to defeat the evil Circuit Fae who harnessed the killing magic in technology to take over the school…that was so last year.

Now, Syl’s touch could mean Rouen’s death. Her increasing power is spiraling out of control, threatening to burn down everything she and Rouen have built together.

Their lives, their love, their very world..

My Review:

Sly Skye, a fair fae summer princess has been trying all summer to have a date night with her special girl Rouen Rivoche a dark fae winter princess. They are two opposites that are not meant to be together. Sly wants more than anything to kiss the girl that she gushes over every time she lays eyes on who just so happens to be her girlfriend but there is just this one little problem. One touch from Sly could kill Rouen in seconds. Every time she plans a date night they are interrupted by an Ouroboros awakening and they have to stop it before it can infect everyone.

With summer over and the new school year starting Sly and Rouen hope that their junior year will be better than last year when they had to fight the Moribund and almost died. At least maybe they can spend this year in peace. 

Well, their hope died shortly after walking through the doors of the school when they heard the voice of their enemy Fiann the one person they were hoping to avoid, like forever. Fiann is back for revenge and wants to be the queen of the dark fae but as Rouen says over my dead body. 

They have a new problem that is standing between the two of them being together. The fair prince has come looking for Sly and wants to soul-bond with her but of course, she wants no part of him. The fair prince is very conniving and convincing and tells Sly that the summer people are in danger and the only way for her to save them is to bond with him.

Now Sly not only has to worry about fighting the Ouroboros and Fiann now she has to worry about her own people. What is a girl to do? Can she save her people? Can she save Rouen? Will she ever have her date night with her special girl?

Moribund was one awesome ride but I think, Ouroboros was a whole lot better. Ouroboros took me on a magical burning ride that kept me hanging on watching the electrical show that was being performed before my eyes. I love the flirtatious banter between Sly and Rouen. The way the dark fae and light fae came together as one and worked so well as a team. Sly would be fangirling over her girlfriend during happy times or when they were fighting the Ouroboros. Their love for each other always shined through no matter what they were doing.  

Ouroboros is like the energizer bunny it slaps you with lots of action right from the beginning and keeps on giving all the way through and never lets up. I had a hard time laying it down each and every time I did but life does get in the way. I can’t wait to see what Sly and Rouen get into in book three of the Circuit Fae Series, Inimical.

If you like the world of the fae, magic and magical realms then you are going to love Ouroboros but I do suggest that you read book one Moribund first as you don’t want to miss a thing.
