Curses! Foiled Again: 08/04/14
Curses! Foiled Again by Jane Yolen is the sequel to Foiled!. Aliera Carstairs is the defender of the Seelie Courts. With her weapon in hand she can see the fantasy world living side by side among humanity.
Avery, the Unseelie troll, is still a thorn in Aliera's side. But things aren't as simple as she thinks they are. She's about to discover that things are more complicated than just magical world vs the mundane. To Aliera's annoyance, Avery is the key to understanding the threat that's brewing.
The previous book was mostly an introduction to the characters and the blending of fantasy and fencing. This one goes more into the world building, allowing Aliera to explore and fight in both worlds.
I read Curses! Foiled Again at the same time I was reading Summer Knight and Golden Girl. It was an epic month of reading about battles between the Seelies and Unseelies.
I hope there is a Foiled 3 in the future. If not, Curses! is a satisfying conclusion to the original Foiled.
