Sum It Up!This book is recommended to adult readers and fans of the series.

Just when her new life as a TouchStone — a mortal bound to help OtherFolk cross between Faery and human worlds — seems to be settling down, Abby Sinclair is left in charge when the Protectorate, Moira, leaves for the Faery Court. And when the Protectorate’s away…let’s just say things spiral out of control when a spell on Abby backfires and the Faery Queen declares the Doors between their worlds officially closed.

The results are disastrous for both sides: OtherFolk trapped in the mortal world are beginning to fade, while Faerie is on the brink of war with the daemons of Hell. Along with her brooding elven prince Talivar and sexy incubus Brystion, Abby ventures to the CrossRoads in an attempt to override the Queen’s magic. But nothing in this beautiful, dangerous realm will compare to the discoveries she’s making about her past, her destiny, and what she will sacrifice for those she loves. (Goodreads)
Abby returns in this second novel of the Abby Sinclair series. She is just as sarcastic, strong, and loud as always. Abby is still not quite sure what being a Touchstone entails, she learns a bit more about the "job" in this novel. Maintaining a business and keeping her potential love interests from fighting are the least of Abby's problems when the Faery Queen locks the crossroads. Abby must figure out a way to convince the Faery Queen to reopen the crossroads in time to save some lives or she must try to open them herself. The plot thickens as Abby learns more about herself and her rather intriguing past.
Abby's character is the draw to read this novel. Somewhat snarky, she is funny, witty, and brave. She always seems to be in some type of trouble, but never seems overly concerned as to why she always ends up in the middle of the trouble in the first place. A strong female character makes this novel an even better read. There are a few new characters in this latest novel and the reader will get to reacquaint him/herself with the earlier characters from the first novel. The love interests vie for Abby's heart and the reader must decide which team he/she is on. Can Abby handle everything and everyone collapsing and arguing around her? This book is recommended to adult readers and fans of the series.
