Publisher's Summary

A cynical, disabled film director with borderline personality disorder gets recruited to join a secret organization that oversees relations between Hollywood and Fairyland in the first book of a new urban fantasy series from debut author Mishell Baker.

A year ago Millie lost her legs and her filmmaking career in a failed suicide attempt. Just when she's sure the credits have rolled on her life story, she gets a second chance with the Arcadia Project: a secret organization that polices the traffic to and from a parallel reality filled with creatures straight out of myth and fairy tales.

For her first assignment, Millie is tasked with tracking down a missing movie star who also happens to be a nobleman of the Seelie Court. To find him she'll have to smooth-talk Hollywood power players and uncover the surreal and sometimes terrifying truth behind the glamour of Tinseltown. But stronger forces than just her inner demons are sabotaging her progress, and if she fails to unravel the conspiracy behind the noble's disappearance, not only will she be out on the streets but the shattering of a centuries-old peace could spark an all-out war between worlds.

No pressure.

    "i'd give it 6 ⭐s if possible"

    Unique premise. Characters weird but likable. Great plot twists and humor. Worth adding to library and repeat listens.

    Story
    "A highly unusual heroine"

    Or I guess unusual heroes and heroines. Mental illness and physical disabilities are unusual in stories let alone of the main character. It's a refreshing perspective of people whose lives I see from the outside and never really get a view of internal thoughts and motivations. The explanations about how borderline personality disorder was very interesting and made it easier to empathize with someone who from the outside is unlikable. The premise of the story that only people with mental issues were recruited to be intermediaries to the Fae seemed week at best. Especially since after recruitment these people were expected not to break the "rules" many of which were characteristics of their illness. It was especially frustrating that the main character was treated especially had in this regard. However since I like under dogs and characters that suffer before finding some truth I did enjoy the book. It wasn't as funny or snappy as I was lead to believe but I did enjoy the dialogue. The narration was very good also which always makes an audiobook enjoyable. The various ethnicities of the characters was refreshing as I get so tired of the unimaginative whitewashing of most sci-fi and fantasy and even urban fantasy. Overall a refreshing story. If it was a series I'd read the next one.
