Description

"With this engrossing urban fantasy, Ringle delivers a queer fairy tale as electrifying as it is tender"—Publishers Weekly

“Lush and imaginative—an epic fantasy for a new generation, full of love, vengeance, redemption, and forgiveness.”—Pam Stucky, author of The Universes Inside the Lighthouse

Awakening the handsome prince is supposed to end the fairy tale, not begin it. But the Highvalley witches have rarely done things the way they’re supposed to. On the north Pacific island of Eidolonia, hidden from the world by enchantments, Prince Larkin has lain in a magical sleep since 1799 as one side of a truce between humans and fae. That is, until Merrick Highvalley, a modern-day witch, discovers an old box of magic charms and cryptic notes hidden inside a garden statue.

Experimenting with the charms, Merrick finds himself inside the bower where Larkin lies, and accidentally awakens him. Worse still, releasing Larkin from the spell also releases Ula Kana, a faery bent on eradicating humans from the island. With the truce collapsing and hostilities escalating throughout the country, Merrick and Larkin form an unlikely alliance and become even unlikelier heroes as they flee into the perilous fae realm on a quest to stop Ula Kana and restore harmony to their island.

About the Author

Molly Ringle was one of the quiet, weird kids in school, and is now one of the quiet, weird writers of the world. She likes thinking up innovative romantic obstacles and mixing them with topics like Greek mythology, ghost stories, fairy tales, or regular-world scandalous gossip. She's into mild rainy climates, gardens, '80s new wave music, chocolate, tea, and perfume (or really anything that smells good). She has lived in the Pacific Northwest most of her life, aside from grad school in California and one work-abroad season in Edinburgh in the 1990s. Though she made up occasional imaginary realms in her Oregon backyard while growing up, Eidolonia, depicted in Lava Red Feather Blue, is her first full-fledged fictional country. Molly currently lives in Seattle with her husband, kids, guinea pigs, corgi, and a lot of moss. Her growing list of successful titles include:

1. Persephone's Orchard
2. Underworld's Daughter
