Editorial Reviews


From The Kindle Book Review

"If you've spent any time at all around a pond in the summer, you've seen them. The dragonflies. Madly flitting about, they're the kamikazes ofthe insect kingdom. In this book, they're also a kindly race (whoselanguage sounds like a charming cross between Yoda and Mr. Rogers),happy to adopt a young fairy who has been ejected from her community,just because she's a bit out of the ordinary.

Lilly, as she'seventually named by the dragonflies, is happy with them until she dreams the other fairies are in danger. When she decides to return home, three dragonflies accompany her, and their adventure begins. Ahead of Lillyare a long journey, mysterious powers for her to overcome, and an evilQueen. This is the first part of a trilogy, so be prepared for acliff-hanger ending.

If you're a fan of George MacDonald's work,or Andrew Lang's rainbow of Fairy Books, you'll enjoy this story. It'sperfect for a read-aloud, for listeners ranging from 3 to 7, with shortchapters that keep the story moving. The author's descriptions of thepower and beauty of nature are a plus. I only wish the author had shownus those marching horned beetles, the Queen of the Locusts, and the Frog Lords.

From the Author

This is a story so unusual, so unique, that it almost defies its genre and challenges the reader to think differently about fairy tales. The world the reader is presented with is a wondrous, dangerous and beautiful place. Lilly's journey will take her from the fringes of the fairy kingdom, to the hills of dancing fire, all the way to the mystical mountains and deep into the hidden underworld. She will meet Queens and Lords and be confronted with a terrible evil, which seeks to tear her world apart. But Lilly's differences are less to do with her color and more to do with the magic contained in the deepest part of her soul. A magic so powerful that if it were revealed, even the Dark Queen Eglartharious herself may tremble at the sight of it.
