Description

Henry Atherton thinks his life is spinning out of control. But nothing prepares him for the invisible portal in old man Fogarty's backyard . . . and the unexpected stranger who comes through it.
Pyrgus Malvae, crown prince of the Faerie realm, is on the run. Too many people want the rebellious young heir dead: a scheming sorcerer, a powerful demon, the malignant leader of the Faeries of the Night, and maybe even a hidden traitor within his father's court.
Henry and Pyrgus come from very different worlds, but it may be up to Henry to save all of Faerie from being conquered by the Nightside, even if it means crossing over to a magical realm where nothing is ever what it seems . . . and no one can be trusted.

Review quote

A "New York Times" Bestseller "A master of the hairpin turn, leading readers in one direction and suddenly reversing their expectations . . . Brennan excels at maintaining suspense."--"The New York Times "on "Faerie Wars" "Brennan adeptly uses the fish-out-of-water element to make political and social commentary."--"Publishers Weekly" on "Faerie Wars" "There is enough solid adventure in the Faerie realms to keep readers on the edge of their seats."--"Booklist" on "Faerie Wars" "A clever, sly fantasy with immediate intrigue and plenty of science . Twists and turns provide real surprises along the way; touches of gore are occasional but vivid .the perfect choice for Harry Potter fans who don't know what to read next. --"Kirkus Reviews" on "Faerie Wars" ""Faerie Wars" is an astounding blend of fantasy, mythology and science. Herbie Brennan is a master of all three. If Herbie Brennan doesn't write a sequel, I may have to get a petition going." --Eoin Colfer, best-selling author of "Artemis Fowl "on "Faerie Wars" "
