Introducing Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter

Genre.
Middle grade/young adult contemporary faery fantasy.

Description.

    Forget everything you think you know about faeries. . . .

    Creatures full of magic and whimsy?

    Not in the Oakenwyld. Not anymore.

    Deep inside the great Oak lies a dying faery realm, bursting with secrets instead of magic. Long ago the faeries mysteriously lost their magic. Robbed of their powers, they have become selfish and dull-witted. Now their numbers are dwindling and their very survival is at stake.

    Only one young faery—Knife—is determined to find out where her people’s magic has gone and try to get it back. Unlike her sisters, Knife is fierce and independent. She’s not afraid of anything—not the vicious crows, the strict Faery Queen, or the fascinating humans living nearby. But when Knife disobeys the Faery Queen and befriends a human named Paul, her quest becomes more dangerous than she realizes. Can Knife trust Paul to help, or has she brought the faeries even closer to the brink of destruction?

    Talented newcomer R. J. Anderson creates an extraordinary new fantasy world and weaves a gripping tale of lost magic, high adventure, and surprising friendship in which the fate of an entire realm rests on the shoulders of one brave faery rebel.

What others are saying:

    “It took me a chapter to get into the story, but after that I was hooked. I LOVED IT! I wanted to drop everything and finish the story. I’m so excited there’s another three books in the series. I loved the world R.J. Anderson created and how the faeries interact with humans. It’s an engaging fantastical tale.”
