ABOUT THE BOOK
Author: Megan Curd
Series: Bridger #2
Publication Date: March 17, 2012
Ashlyn never believed in fairy tales until she was in one.
They say ignorance is bliss, but not when you're on a centuries old hit list...and there's a traitor in your midst.
Ashlyn must decide what's most important: trusting the allies she has, or siding with those she thought were enemies. Ashlyn knows old friends can turn on her, and unlikely allies may be the best chance she has to piece her family back together. No matter what her choice, she could lose someone she loves.
And when you don't know who to trust, believe one thing: You can never trust a faerie.
Traitor by Megan Curd is like a Halloween haunted house ride, you never know what it going to pop up around the corner. Sometimes the second book in a series is great, but does not quite live up to the first book. In this case, even though Bridger was amazing, Traitor blows it out of the water!! I just cannot clearly express the emotions or wrap my brain around the twists, turns, and super mega crazy stuff that went down in Traitor. For those that have not read Bridger, there may be a few spoilers in this review but they will be minor. This series focuses on Irish Folklore, specifically Faery mythology. In the Bridger series, it deals a lot with the Changeling mythology. Evil creatures sent to steal children away, and replace them with changelings.
In Bridger, Ashlyn discovers, she is not entirely human, and is thrown into a feud between the ruler of the Changelings, Ankou, and her grandmother. The events in Traitor are a more tumultuous mix then those of the first book. Ashlyn is facing a number of tough decisions in this book, and I have a feeling that the next book in the series is not going to get any easier. Ashlyn just want to hang out with her new boyfriend and sworn protector, Liam. The problem is there are still people to save from the clutches of the Ankou, and the only one that has the gift to crossover into the changeling realm is Ashlyn.
There were so many moments in the book that I thought it would go one way, and it twisted around like a crazy straw to go a different direction. There are two points of view in the book, it is mostly told from Ashlyn’s perceptive but to help show all sides of the story, Ashlyn’s best friend Reese is also a narrator from time to time. I seriously think I am going to need a few days to recover from the excitement, and insanity that was Traitor. I am beyond ecstatic that I read this book, because it is just a marvelous story.
Ashlyn is strong but venerable as a lead character, and Megan Curd does an amazing job creating a wonderful adventure for readers to enjoy. If you have not had the chance to start Bridger, do it, and then quickly pick up Traitor to experience even more of such a fascinating world filled with wondrous characters.
