Sabrina, a human academic, just discovered magic is real and her best friend, a quiet woman who owns a lovely nursery in the backwoods of their small Kentucky town, is actually a Fae princess in hiding. And her name is Nin, not Nina. That’s a big secret to keep, but when a tyrant obsessed with her friend puts deadly plans in motion, Sabrina must come to terms with her new reality quickly. She’ll also need to gather all her loyalty, courage, and esoteric knowledge of old John Milton plays to help Nin and her family fight the tyranny in their Palace. If she can’t piece a prophetic literary puzzle together, the two women—and the entire Fae realm—may be left in ruin.
Queen Nin comes to power and Sabrina will stand by her side, the only human ever appointed a Scholar of Fae, to face the rumblings of a newly revived Fae Court. Nin, still unsure of herself as a leader, shoulders the weight of the crown and the trauma and guilt attached to her captivities. Sabrina, spending more time with Nin’s family, must contend with her growing feelings for Mosi as she carves space for herself within Fae.
With the schemes of Comus and his spies haunting their steps and new, unknown magics stirring around the two women, their loyalty, cunning, and study skills will once again be put to the test.
