2016 Dragon Award Nominee!
Fey magic and animal magic: that troublemaking imp Trix Woodcutter has both, if not the ability to use them to their full potential. While traveling with his companion--the golden girl Lizinia--to see the King of Eagles, Trix is sent a vision of the Faerie Queen, who is in desperate need of his help. An evil sorceress has stormed Faerie and trapped all the fey magic under the Hill, leaving the Faerie Queen powerless! Trix's talent for communicating with animals is desperately needed...but before he braves the wild world of Faerie he must arm himself, with nothing less than the bow and arrows of a god.
With the help of his gilded companion, her ghost-cat godfather, a blind brownie and a sister or two, the Boy Who Talks to Animals must befriend a mischievous leprechaun, best a wolf, and journey into the depths of Faerie to restore order and free the fey magic before the imbalance destroys the world.
Join Trix Woodcutter on an epic new animal-filled adventure!
Trix and the Faerie Queen is second in The Trix Adventures and sixth in the Books of Arilland Series.
