Shadowspell by Jenna Black is the sequel to Glimmerglass. Dana Hathaway and her human mother are living in protective custody in Avalon. Meanwhile the Erlking is terrorizing Avalon and seems to have taken an interest in Dana.
In the first book I liked the mix of modern day life with traditional fantasy elements. Fae going out of Starbucks and sushi was charming and a little kitschy.
But now there's this larger than life force coming after Dana and she's too busy being a teenager to care. In the previous book she's shown having to care for her alcoholic mother. The desire to have some time to herself is why she ran away.
Her sense of responsibility is completely gone. She goes on dates. She's distracted by every hot guy she sees, even when she knows he's trouble. And then things go completely off the rails when she agrees to sleep with the Erlking.
The third book is Sirensong (2011) but at this time I have no plans to continue with the series.
