Denya’s daughter, Eliya, is ill — caught in the clutches of a fairy chill that only fey broth can cure. For that, Denya must go into the woods that are the gateway to Fairy, into the very forest that her wife Bren went into three years ago and never came back out of.

There was never any doubt that this story would have a happy ending, but that doesn’t make the happy ending any less satisfying.
