This book for young adults holds all the excitement of Hunger Games with a bit of historical lore and fantasy thrown in.  The feisty heroine, Aileana, discovers both her mother being murdered and a world of fearsome faeries bent on destroying mankind.

While trying to hide her battle scars & maintain a proper lady's demeanor, Aileana designs weapons to defeat the banished faeries before they can escape the underworld.  The author, Elizabeth May, can capture her readers and transport them intro her fantasy world from the first chapter until the last gripping moments on the final page.  I can't wait for the next book!
