Prophecy vs Prophecy

The Boy with the Hidden Name by Skylar Dorset Otherworld #2 Young Adult, Urban Fantasy This is not your average trip to Fairyland…

Selkie Stewart has just saved her quasi-boyfriend, Ben, from a fairy prison run by the Seelie Court. If they weren’t the two most-wanted individuals in the Otherworld before, they definitely are now. Along with Ben and the rest of their ragtag group of allies-Selkie’s ogre aunts; a wizard named Will; Ben’s cousin Safford; and Kelsey, Selkie’s best friend-Selkie is ready to embrace her destiny and bring the Court down. Until she hears the rest of her prophecy: Benedict le Fay will betray you, and then he will die.



The Boy with the Hidden Name is the second book in the Otherworld duology by Skylar Dorset. This book was everything I thought it would with crazy characters, a complicated plot, surprises here and there, magic, mystery, action and all of it with that wonderful Alice in Wonderland feel to it.

This book pretty much starts where we left off in The Girl That Never Was, Selkie is mad at Ben because he left, the Aunts are trying to keep Selkie safe, Will is planning things, the Seelies want to torture everyone (and are doing a good job of it) and the group is trying to stop one prophecy from happening while making sure another works out in their favor.

Ben gets himself into a bit of trouble and he needs recusing again this time from the Unseelie court. So Selkie and the gang go get help from an unexpected source then go and rescue Ben and that is when things take a turn for the worst. However a prophecy is a prophecy and thing must be done and a prophecy is going to happen we just want it to be the good one. The four fay of the seasons must be found and time is running out.

I would suggest that you read the novella, The Girl Who Read the Stars, which is place after The Girl that Never Was and before The Boy with the Hidden Name. It will help introduce you to two characters that are going to be in this book and it gives readers a little insight into their personalities. I mean this world is a little confusing at times and it would only help, you can download it free from most ebook retailers.

The Boy with the Hidden Name was a quick read that I really enjoyed and it wrapped up the story perfectly in a way that can only happen in this book. I enjoyed the unique story and the funny characters and I would love to give anything else Skylar writes a try.
