A curmudgeonly professor journey to a small town in the far north to study faerie folklore and discovers dark fae magic, friendship, and love, in this heartwarming and enchanting fantasy.
Well, that sounded interesting. Nothing I love more than an academic-based tale on faeries!
Emily Wilde is a professor at Cambridge. She is an expert in the world of faeries. She is a brilliant researcher and scholar and is now getting more research to finish her Encyclopaedia of Faeries. She shines doing research and communicating with the faerie folk. Actual people, however, she isn’t so good with. She is good with her studies and her dog, Shadow, who has some secrets of his own.
Her best friend would have to be her only friend. Wendell Brambley. Wendell has the biggest secret of all. Part of it Emily has already guessed, but oh there is so much more!
As they travel to the village of Hrafnsvik, all she wants to do is find the Hidden Ones. But as she gets closer to that goal, there is a mystery lurking that could frustrate her to no end.
As frustrated as she is with the townsfolk and Wendell, she may just learn to open her heart just a bit.
What a lovely fantasy story. Academia-based is definitely one of my favorites. And I loved diary writing.
A very good story.
