Forget everything you think you know about faeries. . . .

Creatures full of magic and whimsy?

Not in the Oakenwyld. Not anymore.

Deep inside the great Oak lies a dying faery realm, bursting with secrets instead of magic. Long ago the faeries mysteriously lost their magic. Robbed of their powers, they have become selfish and dull-witted. Now their numbers are dwindling and their very survival is at stake.

Only one young faery--Knife--is determined to find out where her people's magic has gone and try to get it back. Unlike her sisters, Knife is fierce and independent. She's not afraid of anything--not the vicious crows, the strict Faery Queen, or the fascinating humans living nearby. But when Knife disobeys the Faery Queen and befriends a human named Paul, her quest becomes more dangerous than she realizes. Can Knife trust Paul to help, or has she brought the faeries even closer to the brink of destruction?

Talented newcomer R. J. Anderson creates an extraordinary new fantasy world and weaves a gripping tale of lost magic, high adventure, and surprising friendship in which the fate of an entire realm rests on the shoulders of one brave faery rebel.

It was a very cutesy-fast-paced read; not the best book in the world, but I found myself smiling every few pages and enjoyed it thoroughly. I loved Knife's perception of Paul's wheelchair - a throne. Overall, I highly recommend it.

I am delighted with both the content and the thought that went into writing this great piece of fantasy.

I have always taken seriously the books that one gives to a young person growing up. Sex and violence, blood and gore do not figure into what I would call a good story.
Totally without violence and blood, werewolves or vampires, this plot goes quickly and keeps the mind occupied trying to figure out what will come next. Most girls should get a lot out of this, too, as good morals are upheld without being corny.
Such a breath of fresh air, after wading through book after book to find one that isn't trite,bloody or boring... THANK you, Ms. Anderson!!
