It’s hard to believe it has been ten years since The Treachery of Beautiful Things first came out.
Unfortunately it has been out of print for some time now, but I’m delighted to announce that on the 5th July it will be available again.
It comes to you complete with a fabulous new cover by the supremely talented Rhoda Baxter who is perhaps better known for her gorgeous rom coms (go to her website, sign up for her newsletter, get a free book!). I couldn’t believe how beautiful the image is and how it captures the magic and the danger of the Realm so clearly.
The trees had swallowed Tom whole.
Seven years ago Jenny’s brother vanished in Branley Copse. She returns one last time to say goodbye, but the sound of music draws her into the shade of the trees and onto the twisted pathways of the Realm, the place where fairy-tales, and nightmares, are born.
Determined to find and free Tom, Jenny must navigate a strange and frightening world of wonders. Her only guides are the hobgoblin known as Puck, and Jack of the Forest, the Guardian of the Edge, a strange green-eyed man who is duty bound to protect her. And she desperately needs protection.
Hunted by Queen Titania and her servants, with time running out, Jenny and Jack find themselves caught up in an older magic, one bound in rituals of love and death. As it awakens to the presence of a new May Queen, the Realm demands a sacrifice.
The tenth anniversary edition of the much loved fairy-tale fantasy.
