Never trust a fae. Lark Mairen knows this. In her village, the border between the fae and human worlds is as thin as a whisper, and fae trickery is nothing new. But Lark’s brother, Galin, has just disappeared into the fae realm while racing in the deadly Wild Hunt, and Lark’s only lead is a mysterious fae boy called Rook. To save her brother, she’ll have to trust Rook — even if it takes her into the dangerous fae kingdom, where she’ll untangle riddles, navigate labyrinths, and face the wicked king himself.
From the author of The Last Windwitch comes the perfect blend of classic folklore and new twists, with a protagonist who will show readers that failure is nothing to fear — and resilience, bravery, and friendship can overcome even the most daunting adversaries.This magical middle grade adventure is perfect for fans of The Real Boy and The Girl Who Drank the Moon.
"With Rook’s help, she discovers that her brother’s disappearance into the Fae realm is linked to other anomalies, including a power shift among the Fae leadership that could lead to war, and what begins as a search for answers becomes a quest to stabilize the balance between the realms before it tips into chaos. Adam’s (The Last Windwitch) leisurely and intricate adventure weaves in Fae folklore and classic fairy tale themes to create a world in which magic and the everyday precariously exist side by side, brimming with intrigue and danger. Its resourceful heroine, ethereal Fae, strong setting, and perilous atmosphere make for a revitalizing fantasy adventure." — Publishers Weekly
