From the Publisher
Annotation Set in New Zealand and submerged in rich Maori lore and fairy tales, this young adult fantasy centers on the fortunes of Ellie Spencer. A typical teen, Ellie enjoys hanging out with her best friend, Kevin, thinking about her crush, and worrying about schoolwork. But when Kevin seems to be enchanted by the mysterious Reka, who is cast as Titania in a college production of MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM they're working on, Ellie senses trouble. Soon, she finds herself in another world, one where Maori fairies, called patupaiarehe, are fighting to steal Kevin forever. In trying to save him, Ellie risks her life and everything she holds dear.
Editors Note "You're Ellie Spencer."I opened my mouth, just as he added, "And your eyes are opening."Seventeen-year-old Ellie Spencer is just like any other teenager at her boarding school. She hangs out with her best friend Kevin, she obsesses over Mark, a cute and mysterious bad boy, and her biggest worry is her paper deadline. But then everything changes. The news headlines are all abuzz about a local string of serial killings that all share the same morbid trademark: the victims were discovered with their eyes missing. Then a beautiful yet eerie woman enters Ellie's circle of friends and develops an unhealthy fascination with Kevin, and a crazed old man grabs Ellie in a public square and shoves a tattered Bible into her hands, exclaiming, "You need it. It will save your soul." Soon, Ellie finds herself plunged into a haunting world of vengeful fairies, Maori mythology, romance, betrayal, and an epic battle for immortality.
