In the realm of Faerie, the time has come for Roiben's coronation.
Uneasy in the midst of the malevolent Unseelie Court, pixie Kaye is
sure of only one thing -- her love for Roiben. But when Kaye, drunk on
faerie wine, declares herself to Roiben, he sends her on a seemingly
impossible quest. Now Kaye can't see or speak to Roiben unless she can
find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a
Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye decides to tell her
mother the truth -- that she is a changeling left in place of the human
daughter stolen long ago. Her mother's shock and horror sends Kaye back
to the world of Faerie to find her human counterpart and return her to
Ironside. But once back in the faerie courts, Kaye finds herself a pawn
in the games of Silarial, queen of the Seelie Court. Silarial wants
Roiben's throne, and she will use Kaye, and any means necessary, to get
it. In this game of wits and weapons, can a pixie outplay a queen?
Holly Black spins a seductive tale at once achingly real and chillingly
enchanted, set in a dangerous world where pleasure mingles with pain
and nothing is exactly as it appears.
