Product Description

‘A darkly gorgeous fantasy that sparkles with snow and magic, this book wholly enchanted me’ Sangu Mandanna, author of The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches.

An intrepid professor journeys to a small town to study faerie folklore, where she discovers dark fae magic, friendship, and love, in this heart-warming and enchanting fantasy. Emily Wilde is good at many things: she is the foremost expert on the study of faeries. She is a genius scholar and a meticulous researcher who is writing the world’s first encylopaedia of faerie lore.

But Emily Wilde is not good at people. She could never make small talk at a party - much less get invited to one. Emily prefers the company of her books, her dog Shadow, and the Fair Folk.

So when she arrives in the hardscrabble village of Hrafnsvik, Emily has no intention of befriending the gruff townsfolk. Nor does she care to spend time with another new arrival: her dashing and insufferably handsome academic rival Wendell Bambleby, who manages to charm the townsfolk, get in the middle of her research, and utterly confound and frustrate Emily.

But as Emily gets closer to uncovering the secrets of the Hidden Ones - the most elusive of all faeries, she also finds herself on the trail of another mystery: who is Wendell Bambleby and what does he really want? To find the answer, she’ll have to unlock the greatest mystery of all - her own heart.

‘Forget dark academia: give me instead this kind of winter-sunshined, sharp-tongued and footnoted academia, full of field trips and grumpy romance and malevolent faeries’ Freya Marske, author of A Marvellous Light

‘Enchanting in every sense of the word… This book is real magic’ H. G. Parry, author of The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep

‘A book so vividly, endlessly enchanting, so crisply assured, so rich and complete and wise and far-reaching in its worldbuilding that you’ll walk away half ensorcelled, sure Fawcett found Emily Wilde’s journal in some sea-stained trunk’ Melissa Albert

‘The ideal book to curl up with on a chilly winter’s evening… this book is an absolute delight.’ Megan Bannen, author of The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy

‘A charmingly whimsical delight… Five dazzling, gladdening stars’ India Holton, author of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels
