The first of an entertaining new series that combines magic with adventure: Tricked by a deceitful fairy … threatened with the loss of her memory … afraid she’ll never find her way home … It’s the beginning of the summer holidays and thirteen year-old Millie Morlock is the only student left at Dundrum Castle Boarding School. She’s already fed up and bored, but that boredom abruptly change into astonishment when she rescues a real, live fairy from the school’s walled garden. Except Dulcie’s not your regular fairy-tale-type-fairy: she might look like Cinderella, but her personality is more evil stepsister. The cunning fairy is determined to return home to the magical Glens of Tir na Gleena and tricks Millie into going back with her. Suddenly Millie is catapulted into a world where magic is normal and anything human is barely tolerated. She’s devastated to learn that she can’t go back to Dundrum, but when she realizes she’ll also lose all memory of her human existence, her despair turns into determination to beat the unjust fairy laws. At first she has only herself to rely on, but gradually she attracts a group of weird and wonderful friends who are willing to risk everything to help her triumph over the magical forces stacked against her. Not least among her new friends is Toad, a courageous boy whose own memories of his human life are practically non-existent. Will Millie and Toad overcome their dismal fate with help from fairies Sukie, BarnabusBart and YarabeeToot? Will they find their way through Nevergreen and the Whispering Woods, then into the Black Caverns and finally to Crystal Mountain? Will they track down the magical ingredients for the only spell that can restore their memories? And will they finally manage to escape from Tir na Gleena? Or be doomed to remain there forever and slowly grow old, unable to remember their previous lives when they were carefree youngsters with no knowledge of fairy trickery and deceit?
