Summary[edit]

From fail-fandomanon.dreamwidth.org: "A Fairy Queen casts her spell over Georgian (I think?) era London and demands one human soul in tribute. Simon, son of great magicians but with no magic himself, is chosen by lottery to be the sacrifice. Rust, a magician and friend of the family, insists on accompanying him into Fairy."

External Reviews[edit]

  • pinboard.in: "When a Fairy Queen demands tribute from the people of London, Simon is chosen to be the sacrifice. He's a son of two magicians but has no magic himself; so his friend Rust insists on accompanying him into Fairy. Gorgeous writing and atmosphere, although some plot elements - though clever! - weren't quite successful imo. Very beautifully written Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell-esque story and beautiful art too."
