Overview

Far from the Realm of Faerie, a quest to save immortality . . .

A deadly plague is sweeping through Faerie, and no one is immune to its bite. Now, with the guidance of the Dream Weaver, Tania, Rathina, and a mortal ally, Connor, must head off to find the Divine Harper—the only one who can help Tania renew the Faerie Covenant of Immortality. Their quest will soon take them outside the borders of Faerie, to hostile and unwelcoming lands beyond.

On their travels, Tania and her companions encounter danger at every turn as they battle pirates, contend with mysterious and mystical beings, and try to outwit those under the sinister grip of the Dark Arts. But when Tania's beloved Edric appears, it looks as if they have help at last. Or do they? As tensions and dangers rise, Tania is forced to question everything and everyone around her in order to decide if she is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her loved ones.

Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
Praise for the Faerie Path series:“There’s enough mystery, suspense, and romance to carry readers...girls fond of magical princess stories won’t be disappointed.”
Children's Literature - Kristina Cassidy
In the fifth title in the "Faerie Path" series, faerie princess Tania embarks on a quest to save her people from a deadly plague. After centuries of immortality, the people of Faerie are dying and the only way to stop it is to renew King Oberon's pact with the Divine Harper. The Harper lives far across the sea and Tania must journey with her sister Rathina and friend Connor through dangerous lands to find him. Along the way she must face her feelings for her true love, Edric, who has betrayed her. Elements of standard fantasy and the hero's quest are mixed with flowery writing and limited character development. The gritty details of the journey are absent, as characters rarely sleep and eat three meals in the whole book. While Tania is not a helpless princess, coincidence and magical assistance factor heavily into her success. A very brief introduction provides an overview of the events of the previous book. However, Tania's half-mortal status is not well explained, and some elements are confusing if you have not read the whole series. Readers who enjoy princesses who do more than wait to be rescued will enjoy this book. Reviewer: Kristina Cassidy
ALA Booklist (on The Seventh Daughter
“Plenty of harrowing moments, strong women, and a memorable final battle.”
