The fairies have a secret they're just dying to protect…
Emma knows breaking the rules can get you into trouble; it nearly got her sister killed. That's why Emma's stuck in backwater Nowra, Australia, under temporary witness protection with no friends—and no life.
So when Emma has to break the rules to retrieve the runaway family dog, she decides the fairy she sees is clearly a guilt-induced hallucination. Problem is, hallucinations don't usually send you invites to Fairyland—and shadows don't usually chase you home.
It would be easy to ignore the invite.
It would be sensible to avoid the shadows.
But when Emma's only new friend is snatched by the shadows in the middle of the night, Emma knows she has a decision to make: stick to the rules and leave her friend and dog to die, or risk her own life to save them.
