In a time of deadly crisis, Linden alone has the power to save her people.The faeries of the Oak are in danger of extinction, and their only hope for survival rests in fifteen-year-old Linden. Armed with the last of her people's magic, she travels bravely into the modern human world. Along the way she makes a reluctant ally—a human boy named Timothy. Soon Linden and Timothy discover a danger much worse than the Oakenfolk's loss of magic: a potent evil that threatens to enslave faeries and humans alike. In a fevered, desperate chase across the country, Tim and Linden must risk their lives to seek an ancient power before it's too late to save everyone they love. R. J. Anderson has artfully crafted a world of stunning magic, thrilling adventure, and delicate beauty, where the key to the future is in an unexpected, forbidden friendship.

That wasn't necessary here, which made for a smoother story. Besides, I just found Rebel's story more interesting than Knif...
When I was in London, I bought the UK edition of Knife, Anderson’s first book. So naturally, I had to buy the UK version of the sequel so that they matched. I was a bit confused at first, because I somehow had it in my head that Rebel was a prequel. It’s not. It’s a sequel. Once I straightened that ...
A worthy sequel of one of my favorite books of 2009, Spell Hunter, which is also one of my favorite faery books.Linden and Timothy are our main characters this time, with Knife and Paul in the background. However, what we get to see of them is perfect and I would love to see them, even if briefly, i...
