When a dangerous Fae is loose, it is up to a brother and sister to figure out why and to keep their town safe.


There’s a monster in our wood

She’ll get you if you’re not good

Drag you under leaves and sticks

Punish you for all your tricks

A nest of hair and gnawed bone

You are never, ever coming—“ (p.18)

Hazel and Ben live in a small town called Fairfold where humans acknowledge the presence of the fair folk, but try to stay away from their mischievous ways. In the middle of a clearing is a glass coffin with a horned boy inside, reminiscent of Snow White. Hazel and Ben grew up pretending to be friends with the boy and protecting the land as knights. One day they wake up and the coffin is shattered and the horned boy is missing. The teens quickly become entangled in the dangerous activities of the Fae. Will their feelings for the horned boy turn them against each other?
