In the 1960s United Kingdom, as Swinging London is underway, the existence of fairies is exposed to the light of day. Is humanity ready?
Contains a brand-new story from Jul Maroh, author of New York Times best selling book Blue Is The Warmest Color.
This volume contains two stories: Annan, the story of a young faerie who, drawn by the lights of Swinging London, leaves her forest to pursue her dreams of becoming a singer. She meets Stella, a human with whom she quickly falls in love. But her lover’s disappearance will make Anann realize that beneath the glitz and glamour of the city, rejection is only a tiny part of what awaits her...
And Missing Persons of Imbolc: When she arrives in London to investigate a case of missing persons linked to a strange rite, Ailith gladly accepts help from her childhood friend, Eliott, a police officer who expresses clear anti-fairies opinions and blames them for all the major problems in London. When the investigation entrusted to Ailith leads her to the heart of the forest, she makes the most disturbing discovery, uncovering with it a deeply buried wound.
