A spectacular supernatural fantasy that’s hard to put down…
Lexmond continues her The Madigan Chronicles series with this exciting and complex third installment with memorable characters, standout action, and riveting worldbuilding. Trying to find a balance between the Keeper of the Land in Fairy and being human, Ceri is almost at her wits end: Bert is finding it hard to put his trust back in her, and Emily is getting entangled in Mab’s web. Meanwhile, Maeve is still struggling to come to terms with her true self. While Bridget is right on the path to mend her broken relationship with Maeve and Luna, she’s unsure of accepting responsibility from Tara.
