Image of Wayfarer (Faery Rebels)

This second book from Anderson is a delight. Her depictions of faeries are unusual without being overly twee and her human characters are well rounded as they face real moral issues. One particular highlight is Timothy’s Christian faith and his struggles to reconcile it with the world — and the existence of faeries.

The faeries of the Oakenwyld are dying and it falls to Linden — foster daughter of Knife and Wink — to discover a way to restore their lost magic. Timothy, the son of missionaries, has gotten himself suspended in a burst of teenage rebellion. Sent to his cousin’s house, he and Linden become unlikely allies in a war they didn’t know was happening. Caught up in events hundreds of years in the making, Linden and Timothy must find the other faeries and ally with them to survive. (HARPERTEEN, Jun., 304 pp., $16.99)
