Henry Atherton thinks his life is spinning out of control. But nothing prepares him for the invisible portal in old man Fogarty's backyard . . . and the unexpected stranger who comes through it.
Pyrgus Malvae, crown prince of the Faerie realm, is on the run. Too many people want the rebellious young heir dead: a scheming sorcerer, a powerful demon, the malignant leader of the Faeries of the Night, and maybe even a hidden traitor within his father's court.
Henry and Pyrgus come from very different worlds, but it may be up to Henry to save all of Faerie from being conquered by the Nightside, even if it means crossing over to a magical realm where nothing is ever what it seems . . . and no one can be trusted.

It would only be a matter of time before his pursuers reached the gate. Pyrgus didn’t think they’d climb over, but they might bribe a guard to let them in. In any case, he couldn’t afford to hang around. He was about to make a dash across the yard when a fat rat darted from one of the buildings. It had got no more than six feet when a cobblestone exploded.
Pyrgus froze as chips of stone and bits of rat rained down on him. Chalkhill and Brimstone had laid minesaround their factory? He shivered. He’d been about to run across those cobbles.
What were Chalkhill and Brimstone trying to hide? A minefield was more than the usual Faerie-of-the-Night suspicion, way more than anything you’d do to protect a formula for glue.
What was going on in the factory?
