The latest installment in the Faeriewalker series will delight longtime fans and new readers alike. Black’s talent brings the faerie realm to life with brilliant detail. As Dana becomes further entangled in the web of Faerie politics, her latest adventure remains fast paced and full of suspense.
As the only Faeriewalker in existence, Dana is at risk from several forces, including Queen Titania of Seelie Court, who fears the half-human, half-faerie will disrupt the balance of power. Titania summons Dana to court, but the trip proves to be treacherous, as no sooner does Dana arrive than she’s framed for the murder of the Queen’s granddaughter. Dana flees, knowing that being caught means certain death — but will she be able to survive in this world on her own or is it time for her to stand and fight for her future? (ST.
