A young woman named Sharon finds a strange little girl on her doorstep, and takes her in. The stubbornly nameless child is one of the fairyfolk, and is being hunted by dark powers, both fairy and mortal. When the child is kidnapped, she must go to the fairy world and rescue her with the help of her brother, a sexy Catholic priest, and a magical granny with mad embroidering skillz.
It would be difficult to recommend this book highly enough. Writing, characters, plot, and dialogue are all top-notch, better than most traditionally published fiction. The story kept me hooked from beginning to end.
The book is full of adventure, with a good love story, and enough theological musings to keep your brain occupied, without ever slowing down the main story. Napier's Underhill (the fairy world) is a strange place with a logic of its own, a place where everything is beautiful and anything can be deadly. The fairy kingdom is populated with beautiful, dangerous spirits who use magic and wiles to lure unsuspecting mortals to... well, everyone has their own deadly and/or sexy agendas.
It was with a heavy heart that I discovered that this is Dawn Napier's only published work.
Write faster, you! Also, use more bigger words. Be obfuscatory, dammit! (Sorry. Inside joke.)
caveats: The book deserves much better cover art. A few stick-in-the-muds... er, I mean gentle souls... might find some parts blasphemous or disrespectful towards Catholicism. Jesus is pro-gay marriage, and he swears.
