“Jenna Black's bewitching journey into the land of Avalon blends mysterious guys, good friends, mortal danger, and confusing relatives into a magical book that just doesnt let you close it until you are all done. Be prepared to stay up late finishing this one. It's that good.”—Carrie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of Need and Captivate

"Glimmerglass is a delightful tale of faerie intrigue and adventure."—Rachel Vincent, New York Times bestselling author of the Shifters series

Glimmerglass is a terrific read. The story of Dana Hathaway, a girl torn between real-world problems and other-worldly peril is a darkly compelling page-turner shot through with flashes of wit, romance, and adventure. Jenna Black has crafted a fascinating world with her vision of Avalon—a glittering, treacherous place suspended like a bubble between realities, full of enthralling characters and thrilling situations. A wonderful series opener—I cant wait to see where Danas story leads next.”—Lesley Livingston, author of Wondrous Strange and Darklight

"Adult urban fantasy/paranormal author Black launches her young adult Faeriewalker series with the tightly constructed, absorbing story of 16-year-old Dana, who is half human/half faerie. For as long as Dana can remember, her mother has been an alcoholic; after her mother humiliates her at yet another new school, Dana runs away to her mysterious father, who immediately invites her to Avalon, 'the Wild City that was the crossroads between our world and Faerie, where magic and technology coexisted.' Dana's hopes for a more stable existence don't materialize. Her father is in jail when Dana arrives, and she's locked up by her heretofore unknown aunt, rescued by teenage Fae rebels, and plunked down in the middle of messy and dangerous political intrigue. Dana learns that she's a rare and powerful Faeriewalker, with the power to move freely in the human and faerie worlds, and that many are seeking to control her. Black seamlessly blends urban and fantasy elements, and Dana's strength and determination make her a top-notch heroine. A solid choice for fans of the contemporary faerie tale genre."—Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

A new series called Faeriewalker begins. A runaway girl discovers she has the unique power to enter the land of Faerie and bring back magic to Earth.

Synopsis:

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena has just one wish: To learn to surf. She's been drawn so strongly to the waves off the coast of California her entire life, but her father, a former surfer himself, will not allow her to take lessons. When Lena begins sleepwalking to the beach--seemingly drawn by an unrecognizable force--she is compelled to learn to surf even if it means putting herself in grave danger and going against her father's wishes. 

    That force is the presence of a woman. A woman who finally reveals herself--and her silvery tail--to Lena. She has a message. She has a key. The key opens a brown leather sea chest Lena's father has kept hidden for many years, and when Lena discovers what's inside her life, and what she thought she knew about it, will never be the same.
