There are worse things than death. Things that lurk in the shadows and slip into your dreams. Things that have no business existing. Things that once slept ... but have now awoken.
For Callypso Lillis, the fae magic that now runs through her veins is equal parts curse and good fortune. While it bonds her to Desmond Flynn, her soul mate and the King of Night, it also leaves her newly vulnerable to the Thief of Souls, who wants to break the Otherworld ... and Callie along with it.
But it's not just the Thief whose shadow looms over the fae realms. Des's father, the previous King of Night, has returned from the dead, and he wants revenge on the son who sent him to the grave in the first place.
Time is running out to track down both enemies and stop their plans from unfolding. Callie and Des race across realms, gathering clues and unraveling secrets, but fate and chaos are catching up to them. If they can't find a way to stop the forces working to tear them and their kingdom apart, they risk not just their lives but the lives of all fairies ... and unfortunately for them, death is no longer the worst outcome.
