“Celtic faerie-lore comes to life in The Twelfth Stone. When a 21st-century girl comes face-to-face with the ancient world of faeries, we need no coaxing to follow along. With evocative imagery and a powerful environmental theme that bridges the two worlds, The Twelfth Stone will enchant.”
— Kat Goddard, The Bookloft, Great Barrington, MA

The faerie world is fading. Human greed and destruction is giving rise to the basest, lowest, and evilest of faeries. Only Rionnag's arranged marriage will prevent Earth's doom. But she will have none of it. Crossing over to the Other Side to escape her fate, she meets a human girl, Fiona, the lonely fatherless teenager who spends most of her time in the daydream world. Maggie, Fiona's mother, about to leave on her annual retreat to Scotland, harbors a secret that will affect them all. Unknowingly, Fiona holds the key to their ultimate rescue.
