Siblings Hazel and Ben and all those in Fairfold are accustomed to living with the magical Folk who inhabit the forest surrounding their town. The magic of the Fae is just out of the reach of most – except for Ben, who has been gifted with a supernatural musical ability, but one over which he has no control. And deep in their forest sleeps a fairy prince in a glass coffin, the object of youthful romantic crushes for both Hazel and Ben, and the setting of many parties for the young people of Fairfold. When the prince wakes and Hazel frees him, the fragile truce between the town and the magical folk is broken. Hazel and Ben now must face a war with the prince’s father, the Faerie king. And they have to overcome secrets that have been buried for a long time in Fairfold if they are to save themselves and their community. This book does a great job of managing the ebb and flow of action, keeping readers on edge and unsure of what will happen next. Several plot twists may surprise readers, but keep things interesting until the very end.  (Oklahoma Sequoyah Award, 2017)
