Summary:
No one else can see the evil fairies that rouse Tanya from her sleep, torturing her at the slightest mention of their existence, but they are as real to the 13-year-old as anything she's ever known. She cannot rid herself of them, nor can she ignore them. But it is her insistence on responding to them that has her banished to her grandmother's secluded countryside manor.

There is much to explore and even more to fear in the woods surrounding the estate. But, the forest isn't the only source of dark secrets, and Tanya soon finds herself entangled in a mystery that could trap her in the fairy realm forever
Review: This was a really nice read. Sweet, easy story. My only problem is that it wasn't very... fantastical. The fairies almost seemed like a backstory. I wanted to see them more! C'mon! The 13 Treasures were hardly every discussed. The fairies were never there. And there were some pretty clear plot holes.

However, like I said, I really did like it. Hence the 4.5 stars. The thing that would have pushed it over the edge onto a 5 would be if it had filled in those plot holes. I won't say anything specific, because you should read it and get your own opinion.

If you do read it, let me know!
