Series: No Ordinary Fairy Tale
But when he defies the faery empress, it might well get him killed.
Timothy Sinclair doesn't believe in faeries--after all the hardships he's suffered since his missionary parents sent him away to boarding school, he's not even sure he still believes in God. But when a tiny winged girl named Linden bursts into his life and begs him to help save her people, the skeptical Timothy finds himself drawn into a struggle against a potent evil that threatens humans and faeries alike.
With a deadly pair of hunters on their trail, Timothy and Linden flee across country, drawn by the legend of a white stone that could be the faeries' salvation. But the dangers that await them test their courage and resolve to the limit, threatening to tear their unlikely partnership apart. And when it comes down to one last desperate battle, they and all the people they love will be doomed unless Linden and Timothy can find the faith to overcome...
R. J. (Rebecca) Anderson isn't trying to pretend she's not female, she just thinks her initials look writerly. The daughter of a Bible teacher who read Tolkien and Lewis aloud to his children, she grew up daydreaming about Narnia and Middle-Earth, watching Doctor Who from behind the sofa, and hanging out in her brothers' comic book shop. Now she writes novels about knife-wielding faeries, weird science, and the numinous in the modern world.
Her debut novel Knife was longlisted for the Carnegie Award in 2009 and became a UK bestseller; it and its sequels Rebel and Arrow are now being re-released in US paperback and e-book by Enclave Publishing. Her teen thriller Ultraviolet was shortlisted for the 2012 Andre Norton (Nebula) award and the Sunburst Award for Canadian SF, and was followed by a companion novel, Quicksilver (2013). Her newest book is a magical mystery-adventure called A Pocket Full of Murder (Atheneum, September 2015).
