Jen Air : The Little Queen
Science gives humankind the power to turn dreams and fantasy into reality... but sometimes dreams become nightmares. When punk guitar player Kaya Cade is attacked by a creature possessing superhuman speed and strength that takes the eyes of its victims, she believes she has encountered a faerie from ancient, dark legends - fierce guardians of their privacy who will hunt and punish those who glance upon them. Battered and confused, she turns to an old friend for help, Jennifer Airhart. But the two of them had not parted on the best of terms. Despite being very close when they were children, as teens they drifted apart and it was in no small way down to Kay's bullying that the shy Jennifer withdrew from the world to her lighthouse on top of a hill. Nevertheless, Jen is compelled to help her and together they embark on an adventure that sees them come up against the rambling CEO of a research and development company, 'faeries', changelings, Killer Aqua Bunnies, and The Little Queen - a tired young girl who won't rest until she's had revenge. Blending elements of fantasy and folklore with exciting science fiction, The Little Queen is a fun adventure and thriller that will leave you asking one question - Just where the hell did that lighthouse computer come from anyway?
