Description

It is Henry's third visit to the Faerie Realm, but this time in a rather different guise and to a rather different kind of place. Holly Blue is Queen and Lord Hairstreak appears to be proposing a truce between the Faeries of the Night and the Faeries of the Light. Meanwhile, Prince Pyrgus has stumbled across some mysterious crystal flowers with an apparently formidable secret weapon, and there are rumours of a demon invasion led by Beleth, the Prince of Darkness. Queen Blue, wary of her uncle's uncharacteristic generosity, pays a visit to the Spicemaster's labyrinth in an attempt to divine the possible future of the Realm. She is warned to beware someone close, little realising just how careful she will need to be - and when she is kidnapped by the most unlikely candidate, the Realm rapidly descends into chaos. In a thrilling adventure, Blue, Pyrgus and Henry will find themselves in the midst of a furious battle to protect the future of the Realm and secure the throne for the rightful ruler.show more

Review quote

'If Mervyn Peake met Melvin Burgess in a very dark alley, they might emerge with "Faerie Wars"' Eoin Colfer 'A crossover title from which few readers of any age would wish to cross back. Brennan writes with all the dash of an Irish storyteller at the peak of his form. Inventive as Harry Potter, dark as Gormenghast and as intelligently probing as Philip Pullman, here is a title to brighten the dreariest of winter days' (Faerie Wars) The Independent 'With its gutsy details, terrific descriptions and great storyline Faerie Wars is a winner - an inspiration, never perspiration. And don't take my word for it. Several 12-year-olds I know, boys and girls, have read it; their verdict: brilliant!' Irish Times 'It is even better than its predecessor, and more confident' The Bookseller (Praise for The Purple Emperor)show more
