Human destiny lies in the hands of fairies--in the form of a magical apprenticeship which makes possible glass slippers, pumpkin carriages, and the key to turning human tragedy into triumph. More
The latest volume of The Dark Woods Trilogy visits a hidden side of the greatest fairytale of all time...
There are three kinds of fairies–or so the stories claim–the last of which are the faerie godfolk. The wish-granters and half-human of the fairy world, they are meant to atone the mischief of fairies among men.
But do they? When young Baillie Albus learns the truth of her own strange gifts and becomes an apprentice destined to grant a human’s wish, she discovers a complex existence…and darker truths…beneath the surface of a world that is both faerie and mankind.
