The best and bravest faeries fell in the war against the Sluagh, and now the Council is packed with idiots and cowards. Domnall is old, aching, and as cranky as they come, but as much as he'd like to retire, he's the best scout the Sithein court has left. When a fae child falls deathly ill, Domnall knows he's the only one who can get her the medicine she needs: Mother's milk. The old scout will face cunning humans, hungry wolves, and uncooperative sheep, to say nothing of his fellow fae!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tastes like fairy wine; delightful and refreshing.” Ishbelle Bee, author of The Singular and Extraordinary Tale of Mirror & Goliath
“This charming audiobook assumes listeners have a working knowledge of the myths surrounding fairies. This is a quick tale, requiring close attention, but narrator Tim Gerard Reynolds’ voice is steady, warm, and welcoming, so listeners never feel lost. There is urgency in the story itself—a fairy child must get human mother’s milk or die—and the audiobook conveys this without ever rushing. The characters not only have delightful Scottish burrs, but Reynolds also gives them terrific personalities. Domnall is an older fairy a bit weary with life who simultaneously projects hopefulness that has not gone away. Young fairy scout Micol is eager and energetic and exasperated. Human characters can sound faintly sinister, a quality that makes sense in this fairy tale told from a fairy’s perspective.” AudioFile
