Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks.
Now,Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays safe. Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger,she thinks her mother can’t deal with her right now.Wrong.
Zara suspects there’s a freaky guy semi stalking her.
Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie,and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.
Zara and her friends knew they hadn’t solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king’s needs grow deeper every day he’s stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It’s made him vulnerable. And now there’s a new king in town.
A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he’s one of the good guys. Nick isn’t buying it, though Zara isn’t as sure,despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it’s a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It’s her life and his.
Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever.
But that’s not quite how things have worked out. For starters, well, Nick is dead.
Supposedly, he’s been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it’s taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?
And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there’s that other small problem: Zara’s been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn’t just turned,she’s Astley’s queen.
