ABOUT THE BOOK:

Emily Wilde is a genius scholar of faerie folklore who just wrote the worlds first comprehensive encyclopaedia of faeries. Shes learned many of the secrets of the Hidden Ones on her adventures . . . and also from her fellow scholar and former rival Wendell Bambleby.

Because Bambleby is more than infuriatingly charming. Hes an exiled faerie king on the run from his murderous mother and in search of a door back to his realm. And despite Emilys feelings for Bambleby, shes not ready to accept his proposal of marriage: Loving one of the Fair Folk comes with secrets and dangers.

She also has a new project to focus on: a map of the realms of faerie. While she is preparing her research, Bambleby lands her in trouble yet again, when assassins sent by his mother invade Cambridge. Now Bambleby and Emily are on another adventure, this time to the picturesque Austrian Alps, where Emily believes they may find the door to Bamblebys realm and the key to freeing him from his familys dark plans.

But with new relationships for the prickly Emily to navigate and dangerous Folk lurking in every forest and hollow, Emily must unravel the mysterious workings of faerie doors and of her own heart.
