Summary
From #1 New York Times best-selling author Robert Beatty comes a thrilling new series set in the magical world of Serafina.
Move without a sound. Steal without a trace.
Willa, a young night-spirit of the Great Smoky Mountains, is her clan's best thief. She creeps into the homes of day-folk under cover of darkness and takes what they won't miss. It's dangerous work-the day-folk kill whatever they do not understand--but Willa will do anything to win the approval of the padaran, the charismatic leader of the Faeran people.
When Willa's curiosity leaves her hurt and stranded in the day world, she calls upon an ancient, unbreakable bond to escape. Only then does she discover the truth: not all day-folk are the same, and the foundations that have guarded the Faeran for eons are under attack.
As forces of unfathomable destruction encroach on her home, Willa must decide who she truly is. To save the day-folk family that has become her own--and lift the curse that has robbed her people of their truth--Willa will meet deadly force with trusted alliance, violence with shelter, and an ever-changing world with a steady heartbeat of courage.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Readers who love adventure stories featuring fairies and the natural world will have a special affinity for Beatty's latest. The author of the Serafina series has created a world within a world among the Smoky Mountains of Appalachia. Willa is one of the Faeran, magical folk who live in a woodsy hive hidden high above the world of humans, who they prey on, stealing food and items they need. But are the day-folk as mindlessly cruel as the charismatic leader of the Faeran claims? Or are the Faeran people being misled? A nighttime encounter with a kind but sad homesteader has Willa questioning everything. When intrepid Willa discovers human children being kept in an underground prison by her leader, she investigates, at her own risk. Her ability to call on her environment to blend into her surroundings also allows Willa to see the leader for what he is. Can she save the children, and maybe even her people, in time? Expect this series to be popular, and buy the first volume accordingly.--Karen Cruze Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this charming middle grade adventure set in Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains in 1900, Willa, a young Faeran, or night-spirit, is caught between her own slowly dying clan and the human "day-folk," whom she's always been taught to fear and avoid. As a jaetter or hunter-thief, Willa is responsible for stealing from the day-folk to benefit her clan and its charismatic leader, the padaran. But a botched scavenging attempt reveals that not all humans are murderous monsters. Her additional discovery that her own people hold dangerous secrets prompts her to defy the enigmatic padaran and seek a way to correct a grievous wrong. Faced with the potential destruction of everything she's known, Willa takes control of her own destiny. In this series starter set in the same world as his Serafina books, Beatty conjures up a resourceful, compassionate heroine. Full of atmospheric details and richly described magic ("As the branches reached out over the water to hold her, they rustled in the wind, talking"), this well-paced tale asks insightful questions about the relationship between nature and humans.
