Also here is the paragraph synopsis: In the final installment of Those Dreadful Fairy Books, war is coming to Elfame! The uneasy truce between the Seelie Court and the Sluagh Horde is in trouble as nobles on both sides push to attack while amongst the common fairy folk the Brother/Sisterhood of Afflicted and Repressed Fairies plans a revolution. The one chance Elfame may have to maintain the peace is a raid organized by Prince Beow of the Sluagh and Princess Viola of the Seelie. When they are kidnapped, it’s up to Shade, Ginch, and the Professor to save them and prevent the fairy lands from chaos.
