Kate Archer returns home in search of her missing grandmother, Bonny, and to serve as guardian of the town's amusement park until her return... only the carousel animals are really exiles from the faerie world. And not the nice kind of exiles either - no, these are hardened criminals.
While trying to sort out her new role, Kate gets on the wrong side of the neighboring drug smuggler, who decides she's in the way. And, finally, the startling news comes that Grandmother Bonny's disappearance may have had something to do with Kate's long-missing mother....

"A tourist town in Maine hosts a war of faerie magic in this engaging urban fantasy.... Lee brings [the] disparate subplots together in a pyrotechnic finale that plays out magically behind the ordinary facade of smalltown Maine life." (Publishers Weekly)
This is a very well written and read book that takes the listener on a magical journey in a small coastal town where strange things are happening. This is a story of homecoming, self-discovery, friendship, facing one's fears, striving to reunite with one's loved ones and, of course, solving a mystery with many delightful, exciting and unexpected twists and turns. The story unfolds at a pace that makes it easy for the listener to get absorbed in it: no 'overload of information' occurs at any point, but it doesn't become boringly slow either. This book held me in its grip right from the beginning till the very end, and I found the ride very enjoyable and entertaining.
