About The Book

Do you believe in faeries? Not the soft, gentle kind, but the sinister, feral kind ~ the ones that wreak havoc on everything in their path... A fairy-tale series with a difference from Holly Black, bestselling author of The Spiderwick Chronicles and The Cruel Prince.

When pixie Kaye declares herself to Roiben on the day of his coronation, he is forced to send her on a seemingly impossible quest. Now Kaye is forbidden to see or speak to him unless she can find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a lie.

Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye makes a rash decision to reveal the truth to her mother - that she is a changeling left in place of a human child...

But when her mother's reaction sends Kaye running back to the Faerie realm in search of her human counterpart in a bid to return her to Ironside, Kaye once again finds herself a pawn in the games of the Seelie Court. Queen Silarial wants Roiben's throne and she will use any means necessary to get it! In this dangerous, twisted game of wits and power can a pixie outplay a queen?
