    Let me tell you about a tale of a girl. A girl and her brother. A girl and her brother and a town that connects to the land of the fae.

    Let me tell you about a tale where the writing is reminiscent of Maggie Stiefvater's. That slow, lyrical feel that makes you think of moonlit nights and pure magic.

    Let me tell you about a tale that simply *is* pure magic.

    Let me tell you about a tale with fantastic protagonists, protagonists with a sibling relationship that is realistic in its secrets and fighting and honesty and love.

    Let me tell you about a strange twist on Sleeping Beauty, where it is the boy who sleeps. A boy who has horns, who is fae, is he good or evil?

    Let me tell you about the changeling whose foster mother refused to give him back, even after receiving her own child. The changeling who wants to fit in, and yet is drawn to the monthly celebrations of his own race. The changeling named Jack.
