Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Henry Atherton, his faerie prince friend Pyrgus, and Pyrgus's fearless sister, Holly Blue, return in this fantastic adventure to save the Faerie Realm from the evil Hairstreak and his henchmen, Chalkhill and Brimstone.

With the help of forest faeries, some silk mistresses, a sewer-dwelling creature of unknown dimensions, and additional creatures magical and otherwise, the three intrepid young friends find their way from exile back to the home they all would die to preserve and protect.

Review:

"[T]his sequel is off to a galloping start, and the fast-paced action continues throughout the story....There's plenty of humor as well as dangerous adventure — and the conclusion promises more to come." Booklist

Review:

"Fans of Faerie Wars will not be disappointed by this sequel, while people unfamiliar with the first book will have little trouble following the characters and action. A must-have for fans of fantasy and faeries." Children's Literature

Review:

"[S]omewhat disjointed but colorful....[T]his fast-paced adventure with occasional red herrings will please readers who already like the characters." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The many diverse characters take the reader on a fabulous journey where greed seems to be the downfall of the evil characters." Alan Review

Review:

"Many young adults likely will enjoy the adventure flavor, and the first book's popularity undoubtedly will lead to many requests for this volume. Brennan's writing remains good enough that a third book will be welcome..." VOYA

Review:

"Overall, this story will please fans of the first volume but is not likely to win new readers." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

In this much-anticipated sequel to Faerie Wars, Henry Atherton, his faerie prince friend Pyrgus, and Pyrgus's fearless sister, Holly Blue, return in this fantastic adventure to save the Faerie Realm from the evil Hairstreak and his henchmen.
