When it comes to

faeries, there are two types of tale. Some are filled with pretty, friendly flower fairy types. Oth­ers talk about danger­ous, pri­mal crea­tures of older leg­ends; faeries who care lit­tle for hu­man lives, ex­cept when we can amuse them. This is one of those sto­ries.

Hazel and Ben are a brother and sis­ter raised in Fair­fold, a town sit­ting on the edge of the woods where tourists go miss­ing. A faerie prince has slept in a glass cof­fin deep in the woods for decades, but he’s about to be res­cued, with dire con­se­quences for the town...

Full of flawed and sym­pa­thetic char­ac­ters from changelings to knights in train­ing, this is a com­pelling tale of mod­ern- day faeries, grow­ing up and never grow­ing old. Rhian Drinkwa­ter
