Far more than a fantasy adventure, these faeries are involved in a battle pitched between life and death. When Henry, an ordinary boy with a few family problems of his own, gets involved, the two worlds that come together are magically transformed. Henry thinks he is simply saving a butterfly from being eaten by Mr Fogerty's cat - but he is in fact saving the life of a misdirected exiled fairy prince. A prince who has to get back to his own land in order to thwart a threatened attack by Fairies of the Night. But time is against Pyrgus Mulvae and soon he is relying on Henry and Mr Fogarty not just to get him home but also to solve the puzzle that surrounds his exile.
... an enjoyable contemporary fantasy where science and magic comfortably mix.
