Nothing’s ever simple for a witch-blood… Unwanted, neglected, and with only the faintest glimmer of magical talent, Aiden Carver spent a miserable childhood in the heart of the Arcanum, convinced that he was nothing more than a dud among wizards. At fifteen, he learned the truth, which was no better. He was witch-blooded, the child of a wizard and a faerie—and not just any faerie, but Titania, late queen of one of the courts. With no future in the Arcanum, Aiden took a chance and moved in with his newfound half brother, Coileán, who’d inherited their mother’s throne. Relatively safe and appreciated for the first time in his life, Aiden began to embrace his position as a high lord of Faerie, albeit a hopelessly untalented one. But nothing good lasts forever. With the arrival of a mysterious stranger in a dream, Aiden’s new life falls apart. Oberon, the old king who long ago led his court into exile, has returned to Faerie with an army. Coileán has been incapacitated, and if Aiden wants to live, his only choice is to flee. Though stranded in the mortal realm with Joey Bolin, his all-too-mundane friend, and Georgie, a young and very hungry dragon, Aiden is determined to rescue his brother, no matter the cost. But as he soon discovers, Oberon isn’t working alone, and the fate of the courts hangs in the balance. For Aiden, saving Coileán could mean facing Oberon. But whoever heard of an insignificant witch-blood taking on a faerie king?
