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:

"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

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

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.

Synopsis:

When Henry Atherton returned to his own life in the suburbs of London, he thought all was well in the Faerie Ream.  His new friend Pyrgus, the crown prince of Faerie, was about to be coronated as Purple Emperor.  But then Princess Holly Blue arrived on Earth, seeking Henry's help once more.

 

A plot to assassinate Pyrgus is afoot, but that's not the worst of their problems.  Pyrgus's father, the murdered Purple Emperor, has been raised from the dead by means of foul necromantic sorcery.  Now Lord Hairstreak and the sinister Faeries of the Night have seized control of the Realm . . . and driven Pyrgus and his allies into hiding.

 

Henry has no choice to return to the world of Faerie to aid his friends.  But that proves easier said than done when the mystical portal linking their realms goes awry.  Now Henry will have to scramble just to stay alive in a fantastic world that's constantly full of surprises . . . and danger.
