All her life, strange creatures have flickered at the edge of Lee Capren's vision, disappearing when she takes a second glance. Though they inspire her artwork, she can't shake the uneasiness they bring. When she's spirited away by these capricious faeries, Lee is forced to serve them as a portrait artist.
Enter Nasser: His magic has always been more of a curse than a gift, but he's determined to use it to help others. After a chance encounter with Lee, he risks his safety to bargain for her freedom--and unleashes a danger he can't yet imagine.
What felt like days in Faerie spanned years in the human world, and Lee's old life has crumbled away. Now she's living above a shop that caters to the city's beguiling magical crowd and struggling to cope with her new life. Between clashes with Filo, the moody teenage boy who's both her unwilling magic tutor and her temporary roommate; the discovery of her own powers; and her growing feelings for Nasser, Lee's got a lot to deal with.
Meanwhile, a mysterious and cunning faerie is bent on using Lee as the key to a sinister plot. With dark forces closing in, Lee's quest to protect her new friends, as well as her only chance at a real life, will take her through two worlds, both human and Faerie...
But she might not make it back.

As a child, I wanted to be an Egyptologist--but when my fear of ancient Egyptian curses got the better of me, I turned to storytelling instead. An unrepentant nerd, I still play an N64, and I could probably teach a whole class about Pokémon. I worry about the zombie apocalypse every day, I firmly believe that librarians are the noblest people in the world, and I consider Dr Pepper to be the elixir of life. I'm currently a 20-year-old journalism major and author of Flicker.Review:
