Summary

Henry doesn't think he'll ever be able to get his mind off his parents' divorce. That is, until he meets Pyrgus Malvae, prince of the faerie world. Now Henry must help Pyrgus return home to fight the evil Faeries of the Night.

Best-selling author Herbie Brennan magically combines real-life London with the fantasy realm of faeries while delicately exploring such sensitive topics as divorce, politics, and sexuality.

Critic reviews

"[A] solid adventure [that will] keep listeners on the edge of their seats." ( Booklist)
"[Brennan] is a master of the hairpin turn, leading readers in one direction and suddenly reversing their expectations." ( The New York Times Book Review)
"Narrator Gerard Doyle does a remarkable job of bringing each character alive. He reads clearly with great enthusiasm and vibrancy, allowing whimsy and mischief to emerge. Fantasy readers will thoroughly enjoy this audiobook, especially fans of Artemis Fowl and Harry Potter." ( School Library Journal)

Hooks you in and keeps you wanting to hear more

This was my first ever audio book and I wasn't sure how I would take to it after being a bookworm for so long. I needn't have worried - I was quickly drawn in. It was so well read, humorous and very easy to listen to. I couldn't wait to get back to it and when I wasn't listening I kept wondering what might happen next. The characters were extremely distinctive and well developed. I was hoping to let my nieces and nephews listen but I think the issues surrounding same sex relationships and divorce, touched on near the beginning, would really be for their parents to introduce them to (if they so chose) rather than me, so unfortunately I am keeping the book to myself. Highly recommended nevertheless.

Impressed

I tried this book only because of a write up that it compared to the Artemis Fowl series. In reality the story bears little comparison. Brennan manages to create his own unique characters and universe. The story was entertaining, intriguing, and keeps you attention. Gerard Doyle does an excellent reading as well. Adults and kids alike should enjoy this. Fans of series such as Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl etc should enjoy this series. A big thumbs up!
