There’s something very wrong with the world. The sun has stopped shinning; having a devastating affects on the worlds crops. Taisin is a sage, and it falls to her to travel into the heartland of the Fae in the hopes of renewing an old treaty which might just bring back the sun.
But Taisin won’t be travelling alone: A small party is assembled for the journey, including Kaede, a girl Taisin reluctantly grows ever close to amidst terrible visions of Kaede’s future.
Their quest takes them far from home, and deep into danger, with no one to guide them. Can Taisin and Kaede survive? You’ll just have to read the book to find out.
Malinda Lo is a great storyteller who richly weaves her stories around very believable characters you will really connect to. She’s definitely a writer to keep an eye on.
