Young Adult Fantasy
Isobel is an artistic prodigy with a dangerous set of
clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who
cannot bake bread or put a pen to paper without crumbling to
dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and
Isobel’s paintings are highly prized. But when she receives
her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a
terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes—a
weakness that could cost him his life.
Furious, Rook spirits her away to his kingdom to stand trial
for her crime. But something is seriously wrong in his
world, and they are attacked from every side. With Isobel
and Rook depending on each other for survival, their
alliance blossoms into trust, then love—and that love
violates the fair folks’ ruthless laws. Now both of their
lives are forfeit, unless Isobel can use her skill as an
artist to fight the fairy courts. Because secretly, her
Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in
all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first
time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.
