Petra Godfellow is ready - a little nervous, but ready - to grow up and leave home.

She doesn't know the family secret - about the man who once loved her mother, who refused to accept that it was over between them...
Who's crazy enough to believe that he's the king of Faerie.
As Petra begins her first semester at Lightfoot College, she'll be forced to navigate her own doubts when people she respects reveal their beliefs in the absurd and impossible. She'll be stalked by the supernatural, asked to bargain with unfriendly powers for the fate of another world.
And it's not just her future that's in danger. It's her mother, her aunt, her best friend, and thousands of refugees from a centuries-old civil war in Faerie who are tired of staying in hiding.
