Keelie Heartwood believes that her mission in Canada is to resolve a conflict between the elves and the fae. But at the dazzling Fairy High Court — fraught with enchantments and trickery — she soon learns otherwise. An imbalance in magic has created a colossal rift that can destroy the world. Keelie's mixed blood (elf, human, and fae) makes her powerful, but this sixteen-year-old L.A. girl can't fix things alone.
In this strange, magical place where time is unruly, nasty goblins run amok, and an ancient (and handsome) forest god is pursuing her, Keelie isn't sure just whom to trust.

""Was that a dragon?" Duh." (156)

my thoughts:
I didn't know that this book was part of a series, and it wasn't that good of a book. I had a feeling that the story crammed too much fantasy into one, giant, condensed work, and therefore, it wasn't an enjoyable read. The ideas were brilliant and fun, and so was the dialogue, but the overall story wasn't that good. And now I don't know what to write about, because I don't want to trash the author or the book. I don't highly recommend this book, is the point.

I found Lupin!
