Wynn and Elric are adjusting to life in a new, unfamiliar world. They may be safe now, but living in the Between is not without complications. Their adoptive mother, the benevolent Fairy Queen, is haunted by the memory of her child who was kidnapped long ago. She won’t risk letting the same thing happen to Wynn and Elric, so the siblings must follow strict rules in the kingdom.
But that grief has been weakening the queen’s powers for years, and the protective shield around their kingdom is deteriorating. Wynn and Elric battled the Grendel’s forces on their way to the gate, and now they know he lives in the Nightfell Wood: a cruel, dangerous region beyond the kingdom where the elves reside. The shield has always protected the fairies from dark powers, but since the queen has long suspected the elves of playing a role in her daughter’s disappearance, she refuses to extend refuge to them.
When Wynn is coerced into the Nightfell Wood by a creature sent to do the Grendel’s bidding, Elric knows he must go after her to save her life. What they discover there—about fear, prejudice, and the true nature of evil—will change the fairy kingdom forever.
