    February 1, 2007
    Gr 7-10-This third book in the series continues the story of Queen Blue; her brother, Pyrgus; the human Henry; evil Lord Hairstreak; and even more vile Beleth. Blue is now Queen of the Faerie Realm and unexpectedly finds herself receiving an offer of peace from the Faeries of the Night. While she is suspicious, she decides to travel to see if Lord Hairstreak's offer is genuine. Combine this with Henry's abduction by aliens while back on Earth, and readers set off on a wild ride filled with faeries, demons, and illusions culminating in an ending that has the entire Realm in jeopardy. Brennan's humor and clear language carry the action forward at a brisk pace, yet allow beloved characters to be revisited and enjoyed. The entire series strikes a unique balance between fantasy and science fiction, so these books are not bound by the conventions of either genre. The story is riveting, the action is fast, and the characters are convincing. Recommend it to fans of Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series (Hyperion)."Tasha Saecker, Menasha Public Library, WI"

  • Nicholas Tucker, The Independent 'Inventive as Harry Potter, dark as Gormenghast and as intelligently probing as Philip Pullman, here is a title to brighten the dreariest of winter days.'
