Overview

It's all she's ever wanted to be, but it couldn't be further from her grasp

Dana Hathaway doesn't know it yet, but she's in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, "again," Dana decides she's had enough and runs away to find her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the captivating, magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.

Soon, Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone seems to want something from her, from her newfound friends and family to Ethan, the hot Fae guy Dana figures she'll never have a chance with until she does. Caught between two worlds, Dana isn't sure where she'll ever fit in and who can be trusted, not to mention if her world will ever be normal again "

Adult urban fantasy/paranormal author Black launches her young adult Faerie walker series with the tightly constructed, absorbing story of 16-year-old Dana, who is half human/half faerie. For as long as Dana can remember, her mother has been an alcoholic; after her mother humiliates her at yet another new school, Dana runs away to her mysterious father, who immediately invites her to Avalon, "the Wild City that was the crossroads between our world and Faerie, where magic and technology coexisted." Dana's hopes for a more stable existence don't materialize. Her father is in jail when Dana arrives, and she's locked up by her heretofore unknown aunt, rescued by teenage Fae rebels, and plunked down in the middle of messy and dangerous political intrigue. Dana learns that she's a rare and powerful Faeriewalker, with the power to move freely in the human and faerie worlds, and that many are seeking to control her. Black seamlessly blends urban and fantasy elements, and Dana's strength and determination make her a top-notch heroine. A solid choice for fans of the contemporary faerie tale genre. Ages 12–up. (June)
