A steampunk faerie tale set in the early 1900s with romance, danger, and a strong-willed heroine.
When spirited sixteen-year-old Noli Braddock and her best friend Steven "V" Darrow take a flying car out for a joyride, neither expects Noli to be sent to reform school to mend her hoyden ways. While at the dreadful school, Noli’s innocent mid-summer’s eve wish summons Kevighn, a mysterious man who takes Noli with him to the Realm of Faerie. At first Noli believes she has been rescued. But the sinister reason behind the huntsman’s appearance quickly become clear — he wants to use Noli as a blood sacrifice to restore his dying world. V, who has secrets of his own, shows up to help Noli escape and return to the mortal realm — but first, they must navigate the dangerous intrigues of the Otherworld. If they are successful, Noli will live. But if Noli lives, the entire Otherworld civilization will die.
