With his father safely returned, Aiden has begun focusing on the other void in his life: his mother. He cannot conceive that such a woman would resort to suicide, and a cryptic message does nothing to lessen his curiosity. When Enya suddenly appears on his doorstep, he sees an opportunity and seizes it, using the fairy rules against Enya so that she is forced to help him despite the problems that have arrived in her own life below the Earth’s surface.
Enya was finally finishing a three-month probation so generously given to her by the council as punishment for her aiding the humans, and life was extremely boring, so she took to checking in on Aiden through her race’s clever mirror technology and was given the honor of training a quiet new agent named Lonnit, but the mundanity ended there. One night, Enya’s new apartment was broken into by a pixie with plans to kidnap Enya. Enya escaped and fled to Reiche Mansion with hopes of hospitality, but instead she receives servitude and a cold.
With Enya’s trust in Aiden depleted, the relentless pixie still on her tail, malfunctioning magic, and Aiden’s mother’s mystery to solve...who is Viktor?
“You’re not even worth it. You should have kept in mind that we only needed one fairy for the ransom to Olan. You’ve just overstayed your welcome.” The figure seemed to have gained courage and now had the capacity to sneer. He raised the gun level to his shoulder and took aim at Enya’s forehead.
“Lonni, this isn’t you—”
“Oh yes it is, Enya. This is exactly how I want to be: powerful.”
Enya scoffed. “Right, but now you’re only pitiful.” The words slipped out before she could stop them. Her eyes grew wide as soon as they were said. Lonni took on an angry look and prepared to squeeze the trigger.
“Don’t do it!” Aiden pleaded. “Don’t.”
“Shut up, human.”
Aiden lunged and pushed the gun. Lonni pulled the trigger. The gun swung and the shot hit the light. They were lost in darkness. Flit strained his ears to hear any clues as to what was happening. It didn’t take long. There was an enraged yell.
“Foolish human!” Lonni hollered.
“Human’s got a name too, Lonni!”
“Enya, try to find the door. I’ll get Flit.” There were the sounds of footfalls. Soon Flit felt someone next to him. “Flit, I need you to try to help me okay? We’re going to get out of here.” Flit focused all his energy on moving his legs and soon, with Aiden’s support, he stood. Before they could even take a step there was trouble. They heard Enya fall.
“Not very good at Cat and Mouse are you, Enya?” Lonni laughed.
“Get away, you filth.”
“Well, I guess it’s fairly obvious as to where you are now, hmm?”
Flit was suddenly lowered to the ground again. He turned on his side just in time to see a flash of light from the gun illuminate Enya’s horrified face and hear her scream…

Enya Polaris is a teenage fairy, and she's come to realize that she's currently experiencing the hardest years, if not months, of her life. After she is released from her three-month probation for being captured by humans, she is again enslaved by Aiden Reiche, who she has come to know as her dear friend. The use of this slavery makes their relationship suffer, but Enya is bound to Aiden until they find his mother. Not only is Enya bound to Aiden, but an evil pixie is trying to kidnap them both. The teens find out just how connected their lives are once the prophecies are revealed. With the entrance of a strange man in Enya's dreams and a war unfolding right in front of them, Enya becomes overwhelmed with all of her responsibilities and tasks at hand. Will this be the end of Enya? Or will her faith keep her above water in order for her to defeat their enemies once more?
Enya's Shadow is a solid sequel in the Enya Series. It is filled with strong moral standards and family values. The use of new characters and relationships really brings the story to life, making it a fairy tale readers of any age can enjoy. Kristalyn Vetovich is a strong young writer who has created a world second to none with the use of magic, creatures, and sparkling personalities.
