An incredibly magical adventure.
Faeries at the bottom of your garden? Do you believe in them, some people do, some insist they have seen them, and others like Milo, the 10 year old protagonist of this excellent middle grade fantasy story have their very own tale to tell.
You see Milo has been left in the care of his Uncle Jon for a few days. Uncle Jon is a strange man, some would even say that at times he is “away with the faeries,” a strange turn of phrase sometimes, but not in this story…
The first evening Uncle Jon is in charge, as night begins to fall, Milo notices the light is strange, and then the room grows cold. Condensation begin to spread across the window, and a poem starts to appear on the glass. It is a poem he knows, and as he recites the words to himself he hears a young girl’s voice, and to his surprise he sees her on the other side of the glass.
The girl is unlike any other he has seen and she entices him to follow her on an adventure. An adventure which is to lead him into another world, into the land of the faeries.
However, once there he discovers he is not alone, other children have been chosen, but why? When Milo discovers the faeries terrible and dark secret, he realises that the evil underworld has them trapped in a terrible pact, and now is the time of the tiend, when a faery champion must be chosen, they have no choice.
As Milo and the other children travel across strange lands, encountering creatures only heard of in myths and legends, Milo wonders if the fate of the faeries is sealed forever, or if he can discover the inner strength to help them?
Igo Rab, the author of this spellbinding middle grade fantasy takes his readers on a wonderfully perilous journey where excitement waits at the turn of every page.
