Lydia Hawthorne, raised as a changeling child in the Mortal world, is dragged from her adopted life into the decades-long struggle between the Fairy courts. Locked in a desperate bid for long term survival, Oberon and Titania force the Fey to the brink of war in their battle to control Lydia's latent power. Lydia must harness Fey magic to survive even as she stubbornly clings to her 'humanity'. But the Fey get far more than they bargain for when she fuels her Fey abilities with the very human power of love and loss, challenging the nature of Fairy itself.

Would you read this book?
Yet another shot at a 'pitch' for my current novel in progress, "The Between," a YA urban fantasy. I find coming up with a succinct summary of a novel one of the most challenging things to write. What I wasn't able to capture in this version is the very large role a Fey named Clive Barrow has in this story. He is the 2nd POV character, along with Lydia. The summary is still very much a work in progress.
