How do you approach a green haired faerie with serious anger issues? Answer: Very carefully.
Fifteen year old Ben moves with his mother and alcoholic step-father to a sprawling East Coast estate inherited from a distant cousin. Creole, a half-breed teenage faerie, mourns the loss of her father, the former Gatekeeper, responsible for preventing the discovery of her world by man.
